Their hauntingly beautiful melodies will leave you feeling like a sailor lost at sea, being helplessly lured in by the sweetly dangerous sounds of the siren. ”

Muse to Sirens, led by the other worldly vocals of Vanity Ladner, the hypnotic rhythms of Thomas Ladner and the tribal drums of Kristen Huete, is one of Alabama’s most intriguing musical gems, with a story that begins a world away in the vibrant bars & underground venues of Shanghai. Conjuring sonic inspiration from the golden era of Gothic music and the rich folklore and musical roots of America’s Deep South, Muse to Sirens effortlessly create uniquely captivating and hypnotic listening experiences that lure their audience to a place where one might feel as if they’re standing at a crossroads in rural Mississippi, brokering a deal for their soul with the devil.

Muse to Sirens has become the first US band to be interviewed by Viva!, a popular UK podcast and joined forces with Viva! Podcast, to create what they hoped to be the first-ever vegan Christmas hit "Peace on Your Plate". The song debuted December 2019 and landed the #5 spot on Amazon Music and #7 on Google Play, with proceeds going to Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary and Viva! 

Their newest single, “Sins of the Daughter” is both the first offering ahead of the October 2020 release of their debut album titled — “Haunted”, and the first song to manifest as a result of their collaborative efforts with We Choose Noise, a new record label and artist development endeavor built on 16 years of international music industry and professional recording experience.

The band welcomes opportunities for collaboration with broadcasters, other musicians, and bloggers from around the world.
