» ONE EYED DOLL
Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentine's Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime, One-Eyed Doll is an award-winning Austin, Texas power rock duo with a loyal global fan base and extensive international press exposure. In 2009, 2010 2011 the group swept the SXSW Music Awards in categories such as Best Punk Band, Best Metal Band, Best Goth Band, Best New Band, Best Acoustic Guitarist, Best Electric Guitarist, Best Producer, Best Drummer, Best Songwriter, Best Female Vocalist and more. The group has independently released three full-length albums, appears in Revolver, Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines and has left several national tours in its wake including major anime conventions (DragonCon, AniMix, IKKiCON, Anime Overload, ShadoCon, etc.) Blazing the band's wildfire buzz amongst their growing legions of religiously crazed fans is One-Eyed Doll's cult leader.
One-Eyed Doll's core members are the iconic Austin, TX wild child guitarist Kimberly Freeman and drummer Jason Rufuss Sewell: AKA "JUNIOR".Freeman and Sewell have been working together in the studio since 2006. As Kimberly's career-long record producer, he became an integral part of the band's unique sound and even played instruments on the albums. With this experience in mind, Jason joined as drummer in late 2009.One-Eyed doll claims three commercially released albums. From 2007 to 2008 with the release of the debut album, "Hole," Freeman's small cult following exploded into a global fan base, setting a new standard for the modern independent guerrilla DIY business structure.One-Eyed Doll released "Monster" in November 2008, once again under the precise hand of veteran producer [and now drummer] Jason Rufuss Sewell. The new album debuted, to the triumph of their inherently eccentric and diverse following, the group's signature dark, heavy hits, "Fight" and "Monster", blending seamlessly with radio pop style ballads like "Brief Candle" and "Pretty Song".The 2010 album, "Break" is the latest One-Eyed Doll release. Kimberly's intense songwriting is the feature of this collection, highlighted by Jason Rufuss Sewell's heavy beats. Laden with murder ballads, theatrical peaks, dynamic lows, this album has been, by far, the most popular to date amongst the growing global fan community. Another album has been announced for release, this time produced by multi-platinum industry icon Sylvia Massy.
