SweetKiss Momma, the five-piece rock powerhouse hailing from rural Washington State, USA, comes charging right into the ears and hearts
of music fanatics across the globe.  Packing an authentic punch of rock, blues, and southern soul, they skillfully combine the raucousness of a
wild Saturday night, with the dulcet harmonies of a sunny Sunday morning, and possess the rare ability to be both exhilaratingly fresh and
comfortably familiar.
 
Lead singer Jeff Hamel, drummer Tyson Lickert, and guitarists Waid Hoyt and Aaron Arnold, first began playing together at their local church in the early part of the 2000’s (bassist Randy Jackson, a childhood friend of the guys, came aboard in the fall of 2009). After spending years solidifying a well-rounded musical foundation for themselves, each member has matured into a master of their respective craft, and together they meld into one amazingly cohesive unit.  Although Jeff handles most of the lyrical and melodic duties, and lead guitarist Aaron crafts the
majority of the riffs from which the songs are built, each member adds their own element to every song.
 
 
 

Their first performance came in the spring of 2008, and they soon released a three track, self-titled EP in August of the same year.  While continuing to pick up steam like a well-oiled locomotive steam engine, the American roots rockers finally unveiled their debut full-length album in May 2010.  “Revival Rock”, a twelve-song sonic phenomenon, deftly displays the vast world of each member’s talent.
 
With CDBaby handling their physical distribution, the LP has reached #1 in sales in  “Roots Rock”, it’s primary sub-genre (as high as #2 in “Southern Rock”, it’s secondary sub-genre), while intermittently climbing its way into cdbaby.com’s Top-10 on the overall sales charts.  As the record continues to sail off the shelves, an increasing number of online and terrestrial radio stations, in a wide array of formats, have been spinning SweetKiss Momma tunes, garnering them new fans all over the world.  Additionally, their music is slated to be featured in two upcoming independent films; both set for release in the fall of 2010, as well as an undisclosed video game (formatted for Xbox 360
and Playstation 3 consoles) due out sometime in late-2010/early-2011.
 
While the “SKM” machine continues to achieve extraordinary heights on its own, maintaining a completely independent and self-financed operation, the band says that they would not “shy away” from the marketing, distribution, and tour support afforded by a record label.
 
SweetKiss Momma consistently wows audiences with their dynamic live performances, and with comparisons ranging from such legends as
Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers, to contemporary stars like The Black Crowes and Kings of Leon, you can’t help but smile when you hear how genuinely honest these guys are in representing their influences.  Check out their official website or social networking sites for streaming audio, further news, and additional information.
