Destry is an indie folk band centered on Michelle DaRosa. Formerly a vocalist for Straylight Run, on June 3, 2008 Michelle left Straylight Run on friendly terms to pursue a solo career, beginning Destry soon after.[1]

Destry's current work currently consists of collaborations between Michelle and four other artists, Sam Means of The Format,[2] drummer Nico Childrey and Tyler Odom who played together in Cassino, and bassist Shaun Cooper of Straylight Run and Taking Back Sunday.[3]

Michelle DaRosa said all five have collaborated, but have never been in the same room together. The band was proven to have finally been all together by a MySpace blog post by Michelle on February 2, 2009.[4] She also says the only members of a possible tour would be herself, Nico, and Shaun.

On May 1, 2009, the band announced via Myspace that it would have a short tour with The Narrative in June staying within Northeastern America.

Destry's first studio album, It Goes On, was released on October 30, 2009.
