Bio[Edit this profile]
The story: The Black Tulips were formed in early 2005 by Alexandra and Tris, naming themselves after Alexandre Dumas' account of the rare and contradictory bloom. After several legendary maverick gigs as a twosome, Barny, Heidi and then Ulysses joined saying things that are too flattering to publish but will be told in nervous tones after an iced tea or two.
It took only one rehearsal together to realise that The Black Tulips were going to be special. Maybe only to them. It is hoped not.
The Music: Scalpel-sharp lyrics that require a dictionary to untangle; new songs that you've known all your life; a voice that soars, sears and mesmerises... It is not often that a band can be believed in.
All You Need To Know: The band all have the same hand span
