CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT
Cairo Knife Fight is redefining what two musicians can create live, slaying audiences across the globe with their beautiful, yet raw and primal uniqueness.
Formed in New Zealand, and now splitting their time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Cairo Knife Fight is:
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.
The band’s incorporation of various loops and live treatments defies believability and pushes the limits of what two musicians can do on one stage.
Cairo Knife Fight used the pandemic lockdown to write, and, subsequently record, 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 album was recorded on the legendary Neve console from Sound City, the same console responsible for some of the biggest selling albums of all time.
Vocals were recorded at the bands own studio in Los Angeles, and were produced by Phredley Brown, best known for his work as Musical Director and guitarist for Bruno Mars, 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.
Cairo Knife Fight is a must see live act of power and excitement.
