Biography

* Official MySpace

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Savoy is an electronic trio based in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Made up by Ben Eberdt, Gray Smith and Mike Kelly, the band has played all over the United States. Their MySpace is http://www.myspace.com/savoyband, their official site at http://www.savoyband.com

2) Savoy is a Norwegian-American rock trio consisting of Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (famous from Norwegian hit machine a-ha) (vocals/guitars/bass/keyboards), Lauren Savoy (vocals/guitars) and Frode Unneland (drums/percussion/vocals).

The band has released 5 albums to date. Savoy, unlike Waaktaar-Savoy’s other band a-ha, has a certain down-to-earth indie rock approach.

All songs are composed by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy with his wife Lauren Savoy. Lauren herself is known as a film maker and has, amongst other things, directed both a-ha and Savoy music videos. Frode Unneland is one of Norway’s best drummers known from the Bergen music scene as drummer with Chocolate Overdose and Popium. He has also drummed for Norwegian pop sensation Sondre Lerche.

3) Savoy is a German emo band.

4) Savoy, a Romanian band, active during the Communist regime and sponsored by the Union of Young Communists. It was supposed to be the rival of dissident rock bands like Phoenix and Sfinx, it got a lot of media support. Jokes about the leader of the band concern his cheap imitation of the Dire Straits vestimentation and garments. Savoy sounded more folky and progressive rather than hard or heavy.

    One of the finest indie-pop/rock band of my discotheque - close to Swell, Low, Yo La Tengo, Pj Harvey, Red House Painters, Lisa Germano, Piano Magic and others...

    Norwegian Savoy > Boulder Savoy. I could tell that from the first few seconds of one of Boulder Savoy's songs. Sorry.
