Formed around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Jay Gulley, guitarist/pianist/vocalist JoJo Glidewell, bassist/vocalist Phillip Brantley, and drummer John Swint, smart, melodic Brit-rock-inspired indie pop quartet the Modern Skirts infiltrated the crowded Athens, GA, music scene in 2004 with their debut EP, This Is Winning and Thinking. The band's soaring harmonies and obvious gift for songcraft won it an attentive audience early on, resulting in numerous awards and both regional and national showcase performances that culminated with the release of 2005's full-length Catalogue of Generous Men. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
