Following a long line of musical ground-breakers from Orange County, California, who include Rage Against The Machine and Social Distortion, the all-female quartet Pretty In Stereo, breaks the confines of gender-labels in Rock music and delivers memorable, emotionally-driven songs, equally melodic and undeniable to the ear. Easily answering the eternal question of " Can girls rock ?," Pretty In Stereo shames naysayers with hook-laden songs such as " OCD" and " Okay," turning non-believers into fans with every listen. Despite the musical appeal of Pretty In Stereo, the success of the band resides in the individual strengths, intelligence, and varying interests of all band members. Blending demonstrative riffs with tasteful layering, guitarist Christine Fullwood clearly evokes the spirit of her musician father, the great Fully Fullwood ( Bob Marley, Peter Tosh). Bassist Cassandra Clawson, who sidelined a career in Astrophysics to pursue all things Rock, holds down the bottom end with song-oriented chops, creating a tight rhythm section with drummer Jodi Joy. Joy, whose playing was cultivated during personal lessons from renowned Jazz drummer Howard Curtis and Def Leppard's Rick Allen, steps out on her own with dynamic playing, shadowing a young and inventive Tommy Lee (Motley Crue). Abandoning her roots in Astrophysics and Meteorology to plot Pretty in Stereo's musical rise, front-woman Natalie E. Poole fills the groups songs with insightful lyrics, powerful guitar work, and a voice that demands the listener's attention. Music Connection, one of the top music industry magazines in North America, agrees, saying, " Poole has a rich vocal range that brings to mind Bangles' vocalist Susanna Hoffs. The fact that she is also Hollywood-ingenue beautiful is just icing on the cake. " Although relatively fresh to the Los Angeles scene, Pretty In Stereo has already garnered national attention which has created licensing opportunities in film and television. Their track, " Forever in A Day," for example, was featured in TV Guide Channel's documentary about Kimberly Caldwell, finalist in the national phenomenon American Idol. Meanwhile, Pretty In Stereo are generating substantial buzz on the web. Their break-out track "OCD" has been selected as one of the five most downloaded songs on CNET's Rock charts and is featured alongside noteworthy acts such as Green Day in the Rock section of ArtistDirect's website. Publicity on the web and favorable editorials from Music Connection and Buzzplay have attracted new listeners to Pretty In Stereo's own website, drawing thousands of hits each month and creating invaluable exposure. A thirst for the band's music has been felt at radio as well. Along with airplay at the legendary INDIE 103.1FM, the Inland Empire's KCXX 103.9FM has especially taken a liking to the group. The station regularly presents and promotes Pretty In Stereo across the southland and has even featured the band on their morning show - a spot that included both a live performance and an interview. A successful stint on the 2005 Vans Warped Tour has also further exposed Pretty In Stereo; they are featured on the compilation disc, " Sounds of Summer," alongside No Use For A Name and fellow buzz band, Avenged Sevenfold. Pretty In Stereo is Modern Rock at its finest- powerful, melodic, and inescapable. You don't have to be a man or a woman to recognize that.
