One-Eyed Doll – Austin, Texas
One-Eyed Doll is an amazing Goth Punk band who has captured the rawness and angst of Punk Rock and the lyrical epicness of Goth Music and have combined both to create the perfect bouquet of long stemmed razor blades.
Singer/Guitarist, Kimberly Freeman has developed this on-stage persona of a damaged doll that a little girl used to play with and then was tossed into a corner and forgotten about….then many years later that doll rises up and becomes a powerful source of energy and a role model to all those who have felt left behind and seeking a hand of strength.
So far in 2011, Kimberly has been named one of the hottest chicks in hard rock by Revolver Magazine and appears alongside Lita Ford and Joan Jett in Guitar Player Magazine’s twenty most extraordinary female guitarists.
Armed with probably the strongest and most supportive fan base an emerging band can ask for and serious momentum for miles..we predict great things ahead!
