Get To Know KSM
The Runaways, The Go-Gos and the Bangles...Those cutting edge all-girl groups had a profound influence on what made a rock band and who could play in one. KSM may not be the first all-girl rock band, but they are a force that will definitely fit in the same conversation as many of the iconic female bands before them. They are young but talented beyond their years with no pretense -- and they rock.
When it comes to making music, Shelby (lead vocals & guitar), Katie (guitar & vocals), Shae (lead guitar), Sophia (bass) and Kate (drums), are a wrecking crew unto themselves. They sing of the world they know -- boys, dating, texting, playing and partying -- yet they also bring a surprising measure of depth to their songs.
Says lead singer Shelby, "Being all girl, all teen, we’re usually pre-judged. People don’t expect that much, but we usually convince the audience that we’re a legit rock band, not just a ‘chick band.’ KSM...5 girls taking music into their own hands and ready to show their generation what girl power is all about. "
Before heading out on tour with Demi Lovato, KSM covered Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me" for the new 10 Things I Hate About You TV series. Check out the rocking video here and be sure to pick up their new "I Want You To Want Me" EP available on iTunes today! Keep an eye out for KSM's debut album due out later this year.
