Frogg specializes in personalized and collective risk management. Our mantra is train your ear and your ass will follow. Frogg is NOT a ponzi scheme. Everyone wins. At a typical Frogg show you may find yourself laughing, crying, compulsively shaking your booty, and settling your 401k. Frogg is about the bigger picture. We think outside the box and inside the pocket. Frogg is spelled with two Gs. If you forget that, we’ll remind you. Frogg is also releasing an EP very soon. It’s called "Frog is Dead!”
"Violet is Meredith Minogue (singer/songwriter/guitarist) and Jim Barry (songwriter/guitarist/multi instrumentalist). Their sound draws from rock and roll, folk- rock, 70’s singer-songwriters, new wave, country-blues and dream pop. It’s a bit like Buffalo Springfield, Tim Buckley and Gary Numan having a drink with the Pretenders while staring at a Marc Chagall painting.

Based in NYC, Violet has recorded two full length albums, both of which were produced/engineered by Adam Lasus (Helium, Clem Snide, PJ Harvey, Yo La Tengo) at Fireproof Studios. Their debut, ""We Both Know It’s Out There"", includes songs that mix traditional and modern styles effortlessly. Performing Songwriter Magazine called it “one of the best independent releases of 2001”.

Violet’s second CD ""The Last Cathedral"" continues the band’s practice of making music that gracefully shifts genres and moods without feeling unfocused or contrived.

The duo has appeared on CD compilations created by Magnet Magazine, Pop Matters and European record label, Jarmusic’s Coast to Coast, which included tracks by the Cowboy Junkies and Ani DiFranco. Their songs have received airplay on over 150 college radio stations, including NYC’s WFUV.

Over the years, the band has played as an acoustic duo and with a full band at Webster Hall, Knitting Factory (AlterKnit), CMJ, Pete's Candy Store, Arlene's Grocery, Bowery Electric, The Grand Victory, Sidewalk Cafe, Warsaw, Pianos and The Richmond Shepard Theater. They hold an artist in residence at Espresso 77 in Jackson Heights and are currently recording their third album."
