Australia-based WhoTune Music has announced the signing of female power trio SWEET CHILD. The NYC-based group consists of Lexie (lead guitar/vocals), Lily Z (bass/vocals), and Jolie Rose (drums), all highly proficient on their instruments and rarin' to go!
The band's debut EP is slated for release in mid-July and features two cover and three original tracks. The lead single will be AC/DC's classic rocker "Back In Black," and a video has recently been shot for the song. Filming took place in New York's famed Grand Central Station and Times Square. During the video shoot, the ladies were continually surrounded by passersby taking their photos on cell phones, and being asked for autographs. They caused such a commotion with their looks and swagger that the Station Master at Grand Central asked the crew to kindly find a different location!
Each band member exudes a very specific personality, represented by their individual highly stylized fashion and look. 18-year-old Lexie - a petite blond who wields her Flying V guitar with the best of them - projects the sweetness of the "girl next door" who has been toughened around the edges by standing up to the bullies who picked on her in school. Lily Z is the quintessential soulful rocker who purrs like a kitten and roars like a lion, handling her bass while standing tall in stiletto heeled boots and always tells it like it is. And drummer Jolie Rose may be short on words but is strong on backbone, always providing a solid beat in totally sync with her band mates. What she doesn't say in words she shouts in music.
Plans call for a Fall tour and announcements are expected shortly regarding marketing and merchandising alliances with several high profile entities.
