Vienna-raised and California-based duo Silvia Ryder and Ben Bohm are the nucleus of Sugarplum Fairies (the supporting cast is ever-rotating). Ben Bohm’s melodic compositions have found a perfect match in Silvia Ryder’s introspective lyrics and haunting vocals. Their music is laced with surreal images that seem to be part dream diary, part coded messages and part cynical observations and Ryder's breathy, hypnotic vocals evoke comparisons to the late chanteuse Nico of The Velvet Underground.
Since the release of their debut album Flake in 1998 the Sugarplum Fairies have gained exposure by receiving significant airplay at college and NPR stations. For their sophomore release Introspective Raincoat Student Music the duo has teamed up with drummer Keith Mitchell of Mazzy Star, electric bassist Miiko Watanabe (Eggtooth, Holly Vincent, Tracy And The Hindenburg Ground Crew), upright bassist Warren Kaye (Loren Ellis) and keyboard player Louis Durra (Moris Tepper).
