About

The Sequels was created in 2018 by Helena Haber, Kellen Vu, Margaret Shepherd, and Elaina Van Duyne after Elaina wrote a song inspired by the classic school book, Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Our first recording was published to YouTube, where it became a hit among the ASA community. After that, new songs followed, and we adopted Megan Teramoto into the band.

Our songs are, as Elaina puts it, "inspired by books you probably hated reading in high school". We've performed for various events - ASA Shooflies, ASA Shindig Night, and Girls Rock! Phoenix, among others - and we plan to continue to play around the Phoenix area until graduation. This debut album is a chance to collect and remember our time as a band before college takes us down our different paths. Thank you for all the support, and we hope you enjoy the album!
