Modernboys Moderngirls was formed by singer and songwriter Akira Alemany, a musician whose background reads like a bad world music album liner note biography. Alemany was born in Spain, is half-Japanese and was largely educated in Canada so to say the least, he has been exposed to his fair share of different cultures and influences. In terms of musicla influences, Alemany has always been partial to the singer/songwriter types such as Lou Reed and Paul Westerberg but also Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley and Buddy Holly. Besides Alemany the other key part of Modernboys Moderngirls is Brett Millius, the drummer of the band and second founding member.
