Exquisite Corps - Sacramento based fresh new music

A tiny garage in a downtown alley. A cello, a guitar, and a voice. From these minimal beginnings, Exquisite Corps sprang onto Sacramento's music scene in the spring of 2010.

Taking a year to solidify a line-up, they have since become a marriage of both classical and modern sounds melding string trio and indie rock trio into a whole. They have shared the stage with such acts as Said the Whale, Sister Crayon, Ganglians, Sea of Bees, and many more, playing at Sacramento’s Launch Fest two years in a row, the 2011 Sammies Block Party and Concert 4 Charity's Ballet+Live Music at the Crest Theater. On the heels of their recent sold out performance at the Crocker Art Museum's new auditorium, they released their debut record in July of 2012.

Exquisite Corps calls their music orchestral indie/chamber pop, and claim such diverse influences as Nick Cave, Led Zeppelin, the music from Twin Peaks, and opera.
