HIP KITTY • Undeniably Big • Undeniably Raw • Undeniably Rock!


Formed in "Music City" when pop tarts ruled the charts, HIP KITTY is armed with a too hot for you female lead vocalist and trio of rock warriors who wield their instruments like weapons. At first glance, and at any glance, it is pretty obvious that HIP KITTY is not your father's rock band.
Their melting pot of influences range from Guns N' Roses to Goo Goo Dolls, Jefferson Airplane to Evanescence and combine to breed a sound all their own, birthing new life into the rock world. HIP KITTY is currently promoting their "Nothing Left to Burn" CD while completing production of their upcoming single "Smile Pretty" with Grammy award-winning producer Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Korn, Metallica, and The Wallflowers).


"I want people to understand there's no smoke and mirrors behind HIP KITTY. It's REAL!
...We're REAL people, with REAL music... loud, honest, and relevant. Our fans aren't coming to 'watch' a show; they are part of an experience with us." ~ Jen

HIP KITTY is proud to represent Armed Forces Entertainment with continued U.S. military shows including an Afghanistan tour Christmas of 2012. Success of HIP KITTY can also be seen by their inclusion in the popular ROCKBAND gaming series. No doubt about it, HIP KITTY is on the prowl and rock fans will be hearing them ROAR louder than ever before!
   

"Great stage show, creative edgy sound, great response., evident by the long line at their merch table! Highly Recommend Hip Kitty for any event, concert or festival."

"Hip Kitty is a very hard working and extremely professional band to work with. We are thrilled to have them on our roster as they are one of our most requested acts."

"This band has got the power and finesse to tame even the biggest of cynics"
~Toby Wright, multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning producer (Alice in Chains, Korn, Metallica)
   
“Justice and the music business are two things that don't often go together. Sometimes, the cream doesn't always find its' way to the top of the coffee cup. However, call me a dreamer....but sometimes I think talent is just a little too obvious to be ignored. Sometimes, you hear something for the first time, and you know that you have got the ingredients for a remarkable career. Call it a gut feeling, but I think that Hip Kitty qualifies as such a circumstance…Simply put, I think it's safe to head to Vegas and make a bet on this group.”
~Chuck Dauphin, Billboard Magazine, Music News Nashville
   
“Hip Kitty is an exciting New Rock Band with great songs and an equally great Live Show. Their energy is infectious. They have worked hard at being in the Top of their class in the Nashville area. I feel they will be in the next group of up and coming bands out of the area. If you have a chance to see Hip Kitty, don’t miss out, they may be on their way up and out of here very soon!”
~Greg Archilla, Grammy-nominated producer, (Collective Soul, Matchbox 20, Buckcherry, Safetysuit)

~Jerrdog, Fort Wayne's Rock Station 98.9 The Bear
