About Sugarplums: Gerry McWilliams, a multi-instrumentalist Philly native and Alzara Getz, west coast child of Rock and Roll pedigree, combine to form a truly unique sound. The Sugarplums serve a tasty musical micro-brew that pays homage to Sesame Street, Morricone, Pink Floyd, Les Paul and Mary Ford. With an obvious chemistry born from a serendipitous love affair, McWilliams and Getz take you on both a powerful psychedelic ride and a familiar stroll down memory lane, with songs that confront our deepest desires at odds with a modern word, to the simple yet profound, tunes inspired by twilight, rivers, trains, and cats

Getz's plaintive pipes call us back to the divine feminine that is reminiscent of Debra Harry at her brashest, Marilyn at her most seductive, Stevie Nicks at her most mysterious. She embodies the Ulyssean Siren, while McWilliams paints the landscape with licks that tap into a childlike joy, leaving space for jaunty improvs and impassioned ramblings. Together both Getz and McWilliams create eccentric harmonies that combine the best of the Beatles sing-along refrains with the wide-eyed wonder of the Carpenters.
