Having gotten together in early 1995 as an acoustical duo between Rachelle Van Zanten (guitar/vocals) and Daisy Blue Groff (guitar/vocals), Painting Daisies didn't officially take off until Carolyn Fortowsky (bass) and Kim Gryba (drums) were eventually recruited. Resulting in a set with a lyrical content of cross dressing and sheep herding, the bands first album, Flambescence, debuted in 1998 following a cross-country tour of their native Canada. After returning to their home base of Edmonton, their second album, Fortissimo, was recorded and self-released in July of 2000. This was followed by Phonography, produced by Joby Baker and released in 2006, after the band's demise.
