Pittsburgh’s own Lovebettie will be releasing their new EP, The Red Door on March 1st, 2011, engineered and produced by legendary producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple, Hoobastank, Trapt). One of the fastest growing regional success stories on the east coast, Lovebettie has captivated audiences across the country with their sultry, blues-drenched rock fusion. Bloginity’s got you covered with an exclusive download off their new album. “Are You Out There” and you can download it right here http://www.sendspace.com/file/a1zi7s
Making their first steps onto the scene in early 2005, Lovebettie began as a songwriting duo of founding members Alexandra Naples (lead vocals/piano) and C.T. Fields (guitar/vocals). Influenced by everything from the grandeur of modern rock, to the swagger of 1920’s Jazz, they created a powerful and compelling sound of pop and rock charged with feverish rhythms, emotive lyrics, and a sultry blues-drenched fusion. Solidifying this sound are the added talents of Dan Mulkeen (bass) and Larry Shotter (drums and percussion). Since this time, Lovebettie’s persistent drive and tireless work ethic has helped them evolve from a local favorite to a regional success.
Sharing the stage with the likes of Lifehouse, Semi Precious Weapons, Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Guster, Bowling for Soup, Rusted Root, and many more, Lovebettie has relentlessly toured from New York to Chicago, and back again. In 2010 they were invited to perform The Lady Gaga Afterparty for her Monsters Ball Tour. The same year, they also released two music videos for airing consideration on MTV, VH1, and Fuse. In the previous years, they won The Hardrock Cafe and 105.9 The X’s Winter Rock Showcase, as well as accolades in several other contests including Van’s Warped Tour Top 10 Bands of 2008. Just recently they made it to the top three finalists picked to tour the road with Bon Jovi.
In 2011, Lovebettie will be taking part in a full US tour heading down to SXSW Music Festival. Named “one of the most unique, best indie bands in the United States right now” by Indie on Air , Lovebettie is a band you don’t want to miss out on!
