Passionfix is a Baltimore area based band, whose 7th album
titled ‘This and That’ was released in August 2020. 

With a sound that can best be described as ‘adult alternative’, the album is a non stop listening experience filled with powerful and sometimes haunting melodies, that are fed by the amazing vocals of lead singer Kelly Secret. Combined with evocatively layered guitars, the songs are something you feel as much as you hear.

Passionfix – The Opposite of This

Think of Fleetwood Mac, mix in a bit of the Indigo Girls, and then add a touch of U2. The Opposite of This, released by the Baltimore based band Passionfix was the first release by the band since the 1994 classic ‘Dream So Real’. With soaring melodies, and hooks, the album features instant classics such as ‘Ghosts’ and ‘Better Than Real Life.




Passionfix – ‘Dream So Real’

Dream So Real was the 4th studio album released by the Baltimore based band Passionfix. Featuring evocative and ethereal layered guitars, emotionally captivating vocals from Angela Lazarony, and the haunting melodies of songs like the classic ‘Feel’. The songs still resonate today.


Passionfix – ‘November’


‘November’ was the third album released by the Baltimore based band Passionfix. Originally released in 1989, the album featured the late 80’s power pop classic ‘Ana Lisa’, as well as the classic ‘Cup of Coffee’, The songs sound as fresh and relevant today as they did in 1989. The album is filled with melody and endless catchy hooks from beginning to end.
