"It''s aetherial, intelligent and catchy at the same time..." -Neil Gaiman
Chemistry is what started it. After all, it couldn''t have been coincidence that made husband and wife team Adriana and David Róze meet in high school chemistry class in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It felt more like destiny. Destiny, however, likes to take her time. Adriana left the desert to become a stage actor in New York, and David pursued music on his own in New Mexico. It would be several years before their paths would cross again. It was only when Adriana was producing a concert version of the musical Rent that she tapped David to play in the band, and their journey together took up where it left off.
In 1998, Adriana and David married. Soon after, The Endless was born in a warm, mosquito-ridden apartment on New York''s Upper East Side. The band took its name from the anthropomorphic personifications of various aspects of mortal existence made famous in Neil Gaiman''s Sandman graphic novels. Front woman Adriana''s powerful, swirling vocal qualities were a perfect match for David''s diverse abilities with an array of instruments from cello to keyboards. David played with several bands in New York while working on The Endless, including Neycha and The Benjamin Cartel. His performances took him on tours of the country and performances at such NYC clubs as CBGB''s and Izzy Bar.
The Endless'' first concert was in 2000 to a packed audience on the closing night of the BMW Bar in Chelsea. Soon after, the band hit the road and took up residence in their new digs in Los Angeles. Working with collaborator Chuck Skelton, they released their first EP Grumpy Ghost in 2002 to rave reviews. A collection of songs reflecting on love, marriage, and loss, the album sold quickly on the internet and soon found its way into the famed Amoeba Music record store. The duo played tirelessly to promote the record at such venues as The Mint, The Crooked Bar, Molly Malone''s, Kulak''s Woodshed, and Highland Grounds.
Now, The Endless are proud to release their newest EP, the self-produced ...and i''m the queen of the moon. The album presents Adriana and David at their most intimate and honest, further honing a sound that is distinctly their own: electronic, emotional, ethereal. The songs are about building and destroying boundaries, about space and dreams, and finding peace.
