Redefining what two musicians can create live, Cairo Knife Fight are slaying audiences across the globe with their beautifully raw and primal uniqueness.
Formed in New Zealand, now Los Angeles and Las Vegas-based, Cairo Knife Fight are:
NICK GAFFANEY on lead vocals, drums, and keyboard bass (all at the same damn time)
GEORGE PAJON JR. (Grammy-winning guitarist for some of the biggest names in the business: Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, Carlos Santana, Macy Gray, John Legend, Nas, and Sting, just to name a few) creating seemingly limitless guitar soundscapes and incendiary riffs.
This band’s incorporation of various loops and live treatments defies believability and pushes the limits of what two musicians can do on one stage.
George and Nick recorded 20 new songs at Dave Grohl’s 606 Studio, in Los Angeles. Produced by John Lousteau (longtime Foo Fighters and 606 engineer), and the band themselves, the songs were recorded on the legendary Neve console from Sound City, the same console responsible for some of the biggest-selling songs and albums of all time.
Vocals were recorded at the band’s own studio in Los Angeles and were produced by Phredley Brown, best known for his work as Musical Director and guitarist for Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, and Vocal Producer on the hit television series American Idol.
The album was mixed by Dylan Dresdow (multi-grammy-winning producer/mixer: Prince, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, Nas, etc.) at the Future, the acclaimed Hollywood studio owned by Will I. Am of the Black Eyed Peas.
