I would like to introduce this awesome band I came across on Facebook.
Highway 9 recording artist KICKIN VALENTINA is creating quite a buzz and has already established a loyal fan base. The band was formed in early 2013 by guitarist Heber Pampillon and drummer Jimmy Berdine. After meeting vocalist Joe Edwards (whose distinctive style has been described as a “diamond in the dirt”), they began writing and rehearsing, then recruited Chris Taylor to round out the lineup. In 2013, their debut performance was in July, followed by the release of their self-titled debut EP on Highway 9 Records in October. The band has been busy in 2014 opening for artists as diverse as Buckcherry, Queensryche, Pop Evil, Fozzy, Skid Row, Sebastian Bach, Eve to Adam, Faster Pussycat, Nonpoint, Kix, LA Guns and Cilver. KICKIN VALENTINA also performed at festivals such as Soundwave (MD), Rock n Skull (IL), Wolf Fest (CO), Skull Fest (NE), Summer Rock Party (IL), Outskirts 53 Music & Bike Fest (GA) and their own headline shows. In June 2014 they were nominated for – and won – the 2014 Georgia Music Award for “Rock Band of the Year.”
With a little bit of sleaze, a little bit of blues, and a whole lot attitude, KICKIN VALENTINA is quickly gaining attention and traction across the US and overseas. Their first single “Get Ready” is already a fan favorite on radio stations around the world, and one of the top requested songs on Hard Rock Nights and Canada’s Rock X Radio. “Get Ready” has also been used by the Jacksonville Axemen Rugby Team in promo commercials and can be heard during their home games during intermissions. Both “Get Ready” and the standout track “Alone” will be featured in the upcoming action horror movie Altered from award winning film director Kely McClung.
