BIO

Abby K is a bassist, vocalist, and songwriter based in Nashville, TN. She picked up the bass at age 13 after being influenced by Gene Simmons at a KISS Concert. Months into her musical journey, she was 1 of 3 bassists in the United States selected to attend GRAMMY Camp in Los Angeles, CA. She claims that her proudest moment was when Nita Strauss joined her onstage to perform Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper”. Since then, she has developed her own style of musicianship which is commonly described as the love child of Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) and Lita Ford. 

In the spring of 2021, Abby K became an independent artist and announced that Diego Vargas and Zach Gulledge will be joining the band as lead guitarist and drummer. Recently, the new lineup released their 8th single, “99ºC” and embarked on their first major tour with Nita Strauss which ended at the legendary 'Whisky A Go Go'.

This year, the band has booked over 50 dates as part of their 2022 Takeover Tour and is continuing to work on their debut album.  Abby K is thrilled to be working with Laney Amplification, Spectraflex Cables, OnSong, Vocal Mist, WB Gear, and The Orchard! Join Abby and the band on this incredible journey of theirs by following @abbykrocks on all social media.

Ryan Roxie – Guitarist Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper

“Support the next generation of rock – Abby K – welcome to the future!”

“I can't say enough about abby k. Her and her band blistered through a set of all her singles, plus some covers, and unreleased tracks that they have coming up that sound really, really good. Back when i was that age, i don't remember bands being that good, that professional, or that tight. Abby K has the makings of a rockstar.”
