Buffalo, NY Female Fronted Rock Band Talk Influences and Inspiration With Rock ‘N’ Load

So for anyone unfamiliar with yourself, tell us a little bit about your backstory and how you ended up here. 

We are a female-fronted hard rock band out of the Buffalo, NY area, and we have collectively played in bands together throughout the years in the local cover scene. Mike and I had the opportunity to play live on a local telethon a couple of years ago now, and it was there that we met Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls. We had a conversation about his recording studio in Buffalo, GCR Audio, and he encouraged us to dive into some original music. Mike and I toured the studio and decided that this was the correct next move for us. Over the course of a year, we have completed three EP’s and are eager to keep writing new material.

What’s Happening Now: Tell us about what you are currently up to. 

With the recent release of our third EP, Adrenaline, we have been hard at work promoting this four-song compilation. To date, this is the truest representation of our “sound” as a band, and it’s something we are all very proud of. Its high energy, fast-paced, and has that right combination of sweetness and heaviness that we enjoy so much. We are also currently in the process of putting together some tour dates for later this year.  ‘Adrenaline’, along with the previous two EP’s, can be found on all streaming platforms.

What is next for you?

We are hoping to hit the road for a small tour near the end of this year and are still putting together the details on that and will be updating our website and social pages once we have more information. We are very excited to be a part of the East Coast Music Conference this year, and that is currently scheduled for August, so we look forward to meeting some great artists and fans there.

Influences & Inspiration

I think this answer would be different for each member. For me, I attribute MUSE with being influential in wanting to play in a band. Those guys bring such an intensity to their live shows and that makes for such an incredible experience for the crowd. The track that really made me want to dive into bass guitar was Hysteria by MUSE. Chris Wolstenholm’s bass line just got me so into it, and it is still one of my favourite songs to play.

“One of my favourite bass lines and songs by MUSE. This song motivated me both as an instrumentalist and as a singer to start playing out live and hit the stage.”
