Zee Bricker, Adam Michael Lee Padden and Donny Blum are Tart, Detroit’s premiere shred-pop outfit. Formed in 2014, Bricker (vocals) and Padden (guitar) ventured to blend their very different musical backgrounds; Bricker with her disciplined theatre education and Padden’s extensive history of performing in rock bands. Together they discovered the perfect fusion of electro-clash, new-wave that was entirely their own. It wasn’t until the duo replaced a drum machine with drummer and collaborator Donny Blum (The Von Bondies) that Tart’s vision was fully realized. 2017 saw the release of their third E.P Toothache and their first collection with Blum as a full time member.
