Company of Thieves are rooted in Chicago, IL, where vocalist Genevieve Schatz and guitarist Marc Walloch launched the Company of Thievesco-ed indie rock group after striking up a friendship at Union Station. Mike Ortiz climbed aboard to handle drum duties, and the trio formed a unique sound that embraced both Fiona Apple’s articulate songwriting and Denali’s altera-rock muscle. Released independently in May 2007, the debut album Ordinary Riches helped the band boost its following in the Windy City, and Company of Thieves soon graduated from coffeehouse gigs to more traditional venues. National press outlets took notice, as did Wind Up Records, which signed the trio in 2008 and reissued Ordinary Riches in early 2009. – Andrew Leahey
