Hailing from the singularly vibrant musical hotbed known as Chicago, CHEER-ACCIDENT has been a creative, vital force in rock music for over 20 years. They constantly strive to surprise their audiences and themselves through relentless reinvention. From dreamy pop to angular art-rock, CHEER-ACCIDENT strikes a powerful balance between personalized and unique studio wizardry and the visceral excitement of a well-honed, explosive live rock band. The band is a quintet at its foundation, fronted by Carmen Armillas, whose powerfully emotive voice has recently led CHEER-ACCIDENT down the path of even deeper connectedness with their already-loyal audience. Presenting itself in various configurations, the band’s core personnel is frequently augmented by some of Chicago’s finest musicians. Their body of work is unparalleled in its ambition and originality, and their two
latest releases, “Fear Draws Misfortune” and “No Ifs, Ands or Dogs” (both on Cuneiform Records), demonstrate how the band continues to improve with each passing year.

After their hugely successful performance in 2013’s Rock In Opposition Festival in France,
they returned to Europe for several shows in July 2014, this time as a streamlined quartet:

Dante Kester- bass
Jeff Libersher- guitar, vocals, trumpet
Evelyn Davis- vocals. piano and its innards
Thymme Jones- drums, trumpet, vocals

So good it was to play (special shows, all of them) in front of friends from over the ocean in Poland, France and Germany. And then they came home and largely focused on the monthly releasing of material for their subscription page. No small feat, and they continue to fulfill that particular promise to this day.

Currently, the lineup would seem to look mostly like this:

Dante Kester- bass, keyboards
Jeff Libersher- guitar, vocals, trumpet, keyboards
Amelie Morgan- keyboards, vocals, oboe
Thymme Jones- drums, vocals, piano, trumpet, noises

Oftentimes, also including:

Mike Hagedorn- trombone
Carmen Armillas- vocals
Jim Drummond- swellness
Andrea Faught- everything
D. Bayne- keyboards
Sacha Mullin- vocals
Teria Gartelos- vocals
Laura Boton- vocals
Greg Beemster- vocals
Scott Rutledge- words

And sometimes Why.
