Coryphantha is an indie rock band from Oakland with soul, funk, folk and punk influences. Lead singer Eileen Torrez winds profound lyrics around heart-catching melodies, backed by the clever fills of bassist Ellie DiBerardino and the joyful finesse of drummer Michael Kipnis.
With a sonic range leaning from Hiatus Kaiyote to Amy Winehouse, and from Neko Case to Mannequin Pussy, Coryphantha hopes to make you dance and leave the dance floor in your pocket. Whether spurring your justified rage at your boss or easing the heartbreaking awareness of love, our music supports the three-dimensional human in all of us fighting to take up space.
We love sharing music with other people. Through our lyrics and performances, we stick to four core values.
Integrity (does this empower us?)
Message (does this empower other people?)
Authenticity (how can we speak to what's real right now?)
Community (how can we build something together?)
