Foolhardy is an international effort with a global cast of characters. Born in Berlin and comfited by Kitty-Yo producer Guy Sternberg, the group remains defiantly faithful to the pop traditions of melodic indulgence and poignant self-delusion. Peering across the Atlantic for inspiration, Foolhardy left Fly-Over Country for Europe with a thirst for musical adventure. After transversing the continent, the project settled into Berlin for an extended stay. Influenced by eighties pop and FM radio rock, the eponymous debut is packed with catchy pop dirges and three-chord satisfaction. Arts magazine Little Village writes, "The music has a surface sheen of polite conventionality, but something dark and sad roils underneath." 'Where's your daddy?' was a Top 5 finisher in Broadjam.com's Presidential Debate Jam. The celebration of sunny Berlin 'White Trash Rain' was also selected as a Top 5 finisher in the Midwest Song Contest. The astrophysical ballad 'Gravity' was named a finalist in the 2005 Free Fall Song Contest sponsored by MusiciansResource.net. Foolhardy relocated to Austin, Texas in late 2005. Stephen Bidwell on drums, bassist Carissa Ries, Michael Hardy on guitar: It's a co-ed rock show.
