It all started in a bar called Rosie's in NYC in 1998. Michelle was singing Irish tunes with another act when Carmelo introduced himself and expressed an interest in forming a band and writing music together. Michelle said "Yes", and Carmelo(bass) went about gathering musicians.
Soon 'Iggy' Joe Ingnacio Rodriguez(drums), Ish-Paul Perez(keyboards), Dale Streit(guitar), and Hugh Ford(lead guitar) were on board, and the original Suicidal Poets were formed.
In the beginning, rehearsals were held in Iggy's box of a room, "where you couldn't swing a cat". But a lot of good lyrics and music were born there.
Soon Carmelo and Michelle set out to build a proper rehearsal/studio space and start recording the band. The cd 'Suicidal Poets'
was produced from these sessions. Most of the original musicians are still contributing in one form or another to the band.
