More About Once A Pawn

Balta sounds like a very young, angry Rebecca Gates of pioneering mid-'90s guitar-and-drum duo The Spinanes” – Tim McMahan,

“These two...deliver high-energy pop rock/punk that engages the crowd because they are so into it themselves.” – Kent Wolgamott, Ground Zero

High school gym class brought Catherine Balta (drummer/vocalist) and Eric Scrivens (guitarist) together not only to become class badminton champions, but to foster a common love for catchy melodies and intricate pop performances. Once A Pawn’s wide influences range from political punk rock to R&B and hip hop, with the duo’s diverse music collection ranging from such artists as Bad Religion, Third Eye Blind and AFI, to TLC, Common and Missy Elliot.

Once A Pawn has been catching eyes not only for the unusual two piece make-up and drummer/vocalist combo, but because of the energetic and catchy indie/rock/punk/alternative mixed music being produced. Many are stunned by how full their music sounds with only two people behind it all. The band keeps winning over the hearts of many with their infectious melodies and energetic heartfelt live shows. Along with the sounds of Once A Pawn, the sight of the two in action will make you stop what you are doing and just watch.
