“We had a little girl who came with her dad to our Dallas show on the Chats tour, and they missed it because there was some mess up with the website and our set times were all messed up. But, because of that, her mom flew her to Salt Lake City for our show there, and we ended up getting to talk to her for like an hour. And this little girl was more emotionally aware than 90% of adults that I meet. She starts telling us that she had a school project that she could do on a music genre and could focus on a band. And she goes, “And I think you know where this is going…” It turns out she had done an entire school project on THICK, which was so cool. I mean, that’s the cutest thing that I could ever imagine in my entire life, and she was just a wonderful, wonderful little human being. It was beautiful.”– THICK
“Sounding Out with Izzy” is a podcast where I engage in exciting conversations with dynamic female and queer musicians, music fans, and industry professionals about their personal backgrounds and how they’re fighting for positive change in the music industry. In the fourth episode of Season 3, I interview Nicole Sisti (vocals, guitar), Kate Black (bass, vocals), and Shari Page (drums, vocals) of Brooklyn pop punk trio THICK about their sophomore album Happy Now, touring with The Chats and Flogging Molly, using the pandemic as a time for intense self-reflection, and touching stories of many interactions the band has had with young women and girls on the road.
