CRYSTAL & RUNNING' WILD
CRYSTAL & RUNNING' WILD
Born in Brussels, Crystal grew up in a home filled with Country music, Soul, Doo Wop, Rock'n'Roll and of course Rockabilly. At the age of 16 she first set foot on stage, singing with Belgian Rockabilly band Runnin' Wild. This band, consisting of Patrick OuchĂȘne (vox/guitars), Johnny Trash (drums/vox) and Lenn Dauphin (double bass) are already touring the world for over 20 years with their particular Roots/Rockabilly sound. In that time they recorded 7 albums. But now they decide to use their experience to support the very promising new talent, which is Crystal. And so 2012 sees the birth of Crystal & Runnin' Wild, a band that starts to tour Europe immediately (Belgium of course, but also Germany, Holland, Spain, France and even Russia). One of the highlights was their performance in front of an audience of more than 5000 people at the Brussels Summer Festival, where they meet Steve McKay of Iggy & The Stooges fame. McKay is impressed by Crystal's version of their Punk classic "Search And Destroy", and joins the band in the studio to record an alternative version of the song, they had previously recorded on their first demo. Even only 21, Crystal has a very mature and powerful voice, which is clearly demonstrated on the first EP, which was released in April 2013. On this 6-song-CD she surfs between the different sides of her musical personality, combining the high power energy of Iggy & The Stooges with the intense sensuality of Etta James.
TRAILER QUEEN
TRAILER QUEEN
Trailer Queen is a Classic Country/Honky Tonk band based in Phoenix, Arizona, founded by singer/songwriter Brea Burns. Backed by some of the best Classic Country and Rockabilly musicians the city has to offer, Trailer Queen has become a prominent force in the Arizona Country music scene.

Originally hailing from Southern California, music was a part of Brea's life from the start. Her father was a 35 year veteran in the record label industry, and her mother a songwriter and musician, giving Brea a unique perspective of both the business and creative side of music. The family moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was 14, and it is there that the rich history of Country Music began to shape the direction she would go with her own songwriting and performing. Brea's sound is reminiscent of Country greats such as Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Wanda Jackson, and the like; yet presented in way that is accessible and exciting to the modern listener.

Currently residing in Phoenix, Arizona, Brea and her band Trailer Queen have had the honor of opening for some of today's genuine Country artists; including as Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, and Ray Lawrence Jr, among others. Check the 'Shows' section for local and national performance dates!
WHISKEY KISS
WHISKEY KISS
Whiskey Kiss is a female fronted Rockabilly band from Phoenix, AZ. Led by husband and wife duo, Niki and Nick White, their music blends swing with traditional rockabilly for a dynamic, danceable sound. They are newcomers to the Phoenix rockabilly scene, but they have already made their mark by playing some of the biggest rockabilly festivals in town and are playing Viva Las Vegas in 2013, the biggest rockabilly festival in the world. Their debut EP is scheduled to come out in February 2013. Wanda Jackson, Imelda May, and Connie Francis are just some of the artists that influence their brand of music.
