An quartet of misfits thunderously tempting fate to boom their way across Big Texas and beyond at the speed of sound. By way of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas comes one raucous TEMPTRESS.
Kelsey Wilson (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Andi Cuba (Drums/Vocals), Erica Pipes (Rhythm Guitar/Vocals), and Christian Wright (Bass/Vocals) all decided to get together in mid-January 2019, for a simple afternoon of rocking out with the intent for nothing more than keeping their skills sharpened. They weren’t planning to be a band. It just worked.
In five months, these four seasoned players went from jamming for fun in a practice space, to writing and recording some potent heavy metal songs and then began performing them live as TEMPTRESS, with the likes of Heavy Temple, Stonecutters, Backwoods Payback, and Royal Thunder.
In June, they presented their first three original songs in a debut EP release, ‘Temptress‘. Today they share their final video single from the EP, for the third track “Heavy Woman“, plus their first run of tour dates for 2019. More dates to come.
‘Temptress’ was written, performed, and produced by the band. Recorded at Aqualab Sound Recordings in Dallas, Texas, by Josh White, with mastering by Frank Heath at Workshed Engineering in Birmingham, Alabama. The band has nearly completed the writing of a debut full-length album, and will be in the recording studio in between touring weeks.
