Karma and the Killjoys is a piano-rock band based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Founding members Rain Scott-Catoire (Piano/Vocals/Writer), Sydni Myers (Vocals/Writer/Guitar), and Sophia Brazda (Vocals/Writer) came together their freshman year as Theatre Performance majors at Louisiana State University in 2018 and have been composing and performing original music ever since. While operating under the genre “piano-rock,” Karma and the Killjoys invokes flavors of alternative, folk, indie, and classic rock sounds. It is the combination of these different styles and the ever-growing three-part harmonies that make the band what it is.

While they still have growing to do, Karma and the Killjoys has already got dozens of original songs currently in progress. They were happy to make their debut performance at Baton Rouge’s Mid-City Ballroom and in Lafayette at the Rock ‘n Bowl de Lafayette. Karma and the Killjoys invites its audience to find honesty, storytelling, and, of course, catharsis in each and every song. The band wants nothing more than to write music that is relatable, catchy, and long-lasting.
