Artist Biography by

Toronto-based indie-pop duo Chicklet teamed singers/multi-instrumentalists Julie Park and Daniel Barida. Forming in mid-1995, the pair issued their debut cassette EP Daisy Smile and Kitty early the next year, and after another self-released cassette, 3, Chicklet signed to the Pasadena, CA label Satellite, a move yielding the single "Premiere." During the six months bassist Sean Bettam joined the line-up, the group recorded "Shellac" with producer Warren Defever (the track later surfaced on the Splashed with Many a Speck compilation); bassist Chris Sytnyk signed on for the 1998 EP Lemon Chandeliers, and the following year Chicklet issued their first full-length effort, Wanderlust.
