Abby K is a 16-year-old bassist, songwriter and singer from Mooresville, North Carolina. She has had a strong passion for music since a young age, and began playing during her early teenage years. Her father greatly impacted her musical taste by exposing her to classic and hard rock early on. After attending a KISS concert and being inspired by Gene Simmons (KISS), she picked up a bass and instantly fell in love with the instrument.
While playing bass, she decided to begin singing and took on the role of lead singer in her bands. In the summer of 2018, Abby K attended GRAMMY Camp in Los Angeles, where she played bass. She was one of only three bassists selected to attend from across the US. At GRAMMY Camp, she grasped a better understanding of the music industry and knew that she wanted to take her musical career to the next level.
Abby K has opened for Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper) on 2 different occasions with Nita even joining Abby onstage for a rousing rendition of Iron Maiden’s, The Trooper! Additionally, Abby was invited by the casting agent of America’s Got Talent to audition for the show.
She recently signed a management deal with Producer/Writer Eddie Z of The Playroom, formed a new band and will release her debut single, “It Should Have Been Me” worldwide on August 22nd through The Orchard a Sony subsidiary.
Abby’s music has a hard rock edge with sing along style Pop choruses. If Lemmy was female, you’d have Abby K.
“Abby K is the rare combination of rock edge with pop hooks that makes for a real artist who not only has something to say but says it in a way that you
can’t stop singing along.”
“Holy shit dude. I was there was an unknown Joan Jett hit the scene. I was there when Pat who? turned Rock upside down. For the next movement to happen it has to be like the 80s. Girl power!!!”
The first seconds of Abby K's song already made me excited to hear more of her music! It is full of energy and just fine rock! In my eyes she will do very good in future! Keep up your great work Abby! And people give her a chance and listen her song! It is totally worth it!
