Kaytee Della Monica came into the Philadelphia music scene at the age of 16 when she and some friends started the band Airports. Kaytee went on to pursue her visual arts degree at Moore College of Art studying Fine Arts with an emphasis in Sculpture. Video and music always had a strong influence in her artistic endeavors and many of the themes from her visual artwork have continued in her musical endeavors.
In 2016 Kaytee, joined forces with two of her former bandmates, Nick Holdorf (In the Pines) and Evan Bernard (The Superweaks), to turn the music that had formerly existed only in notebooks and recordings on her iPhone into their new project as the band, No Thank You.

No Thank You is set to release their debut album, Jump Ship in early 2017 featuring the single Juicy J. The coming of age album pairs dreamlike sounds with dark lyrics to take you through scenes of friendship, betrayal, romance, death and addiction. Influences of their sound can be heard from Des Ark, Alanis Morissette, Rainer Maria and Pinback.
The band has joined Lame-O records and is excited for their first record release in 2017. You can look out for them on their first tour with friends, The Superweaks, later this year!
