When I first moved to LA more than 12 years ago, I only knew one person in the entire city. So of course I decided to use my music geekdom to make new friends.

That creating art is a desire to create beauty. That defiance is …

After leaving Here We Go Magic, Teeny Liberson decided that she wanted to form a band with her sister and some longtime friends, thus TEEN was born.
