The Break-Ups

Biography

Originally started in 2005 as a “studio side project” by long-time friends and musical collaborators Timmy Rodriguez and Tommy McCord, the addition of Hattie Danby on drums in 2006 turned The Break-Ups into a full-fledged live band. Frankie Knoch rounded out the lineup later in 2006, and The Break-Ups performed their brand of melodic, vocal-harmony laden indie rock around Michigan often until 2011 when they unofficially took a break (aside from a few studio collaborations). The band recorded the EP Frankie’s Baby in early 2014 and began performing again towards the end of the year with Loren Pudvay (a frequent collaborator in the earlier days of the band) replacing Frankie Knoch on bass guitar.
