Why Lie? live on the boundary between song, sound, and story. Aliza Simons (vocals, euphonium, synth) and Dave Ruder (vocals, guitar, clarinet) first came together in 2010 to play two chord songs and tell haunting stories over vamps. From their initial, sparser live sound, often focusing on horns and voices alone, Why Lie? has expanded to as many as eight players in an expansive chamber pop setting and features some of NYC’s finest experimental musicians.
Also, Why Lie? performing Werewolf Solution at a Sweat Lodge show in February 2013. Aliza & Dave alongside Cory, Matthew, Ellen, Joe, Ian, Amirtha.
