Capital Cities Booking Agency Profile

Book Capital Cities for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Best known for their hit song, Safe and Sound, Capital Cities is one of the most recent arrivals to the indie pop culture scene. Ryan Merchant first discovered Sebu Simonian on Craigslist while searching for an advertisement which offered production services. The energetic and quirky duo began writing commercial jingles and, after a successful three years creating music for advertising campaigns, they formed Capital Cities. After signing with Capitol Records, in cooperation with Lazy Hooks, the band's debut album In a Tidal Wave of Mystery was released and unveiled at #66 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Their hit song Safe and Sound has since been heard in promotional campaigns for HBO, Smart Car, Microsoft, Mazda, and many other commercials. It also has reached number one on both the U.S. Top Alternative Rock Charts and the German Singles Chart. The music video for Safe and Sound was also nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards: Best Art Direction and Best Visual Effects. The video also won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Visual Effects..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Capital Cities.

Capital Cities's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of an offer.
CTI can give you exact pricing once we submit your event details to Capital Cities. How much Capital Cities does cost to do an event depends on many variables and the fees we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with booking. Popularity, career stage, and current demand can cause an increase or decrease in pricing. The final fee may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for Capital Cities to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI can not give out direct contact information for the agent or manager of Capital Cities. If you want to send them a message, a gift, or request a free appearance or donation of time, then we will not pass along such material or communications to any of our contacts.
There is low probability for Capital Cities to work a gig for anything substantially less than the published price range. We will negotiate with Capital Cities on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Capital Cities, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider Capital Cities's travel costs, as they may require an entourage of staff and equipment. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Capital Cities, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
