The band Petty Indulgences formed in 2016 and quickly discovered a love of creation and collaboration that remains at the core of their work today.

Drawing members from the theater and independent music communities, Petty Indulgences - and their growing group of guest contributors - love being a part of a thriving creative scene that challenges and engages audiences and performers alike.
