|If Billy Idol and Annie Lennox had children, and those
children were The Cars and Joan Jett, then their second cousins could
easily be The Divys. Formed high-up on the 21st floor of a downtown
Philadelphia apartment in 2005, The Divys have created a sound that
blends huge guitars, drums and synthesizers with superb melodies and
hooks reminiscent of the 80's, when the "M" in MTV still stood for
music. The Divys are made up of one half William Rule: singer, keyboard
player and programmer, and Kliff Ritz: guitars, backing vocals and
Before meeting through a musician's wanted ad, Kliff played the
Philadelphia rock club circuit, and William worked as an in-house
producer for legendary dance producer Bobby Orlando of Pet Shop Boys
and Divine fame at his Reputation Records.
Since then, The Divys have been awarded Best Electronic Song in The John Lennon Songwriting Contest and have become XBox video game stars in the world-famous Dance Dance Revolution: Universe 2,
with the songs, Get Up! Give Up! Move On! and Bad Taste. They have also
been making a splash on television and terrestrial radio by penning the
theme songs to In Bed with Butch, a long-running local Philadelphia
talk show, and The Giant Show on 96.1FM, Atlanta, Georgia.
They have even ventured into other countries with several of their
songs featured in the Canadian reality show, Chris and John to the
Rescue and the South African TV pilot, JBay.
The Divys have performed in clubs throughout the Philadelphia area,
winning Best Local Performers at the annual Rainbow Awards in 2007. In
an Instinct Magazine interview, Robbie Daw dubbed The Divys "The
Dynamic Duo” and predicted them to be the next Hall & Oates.
Currently, as The Divys are wrapping up mixing of their 3rd studio release, StereoFX of South Africa is preparing to release a club mix EP of Divys songs remixed by The Divys themselves. AP Records of Denmark have licensed several songs by The Divys.
