Pop Rock Band Leads with Singles “Stuck in This” and “You’ll Just Have to Wait” 

____________________________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Fresh off the success of their 3-song EP in 2012, the pop/rock ensemble, Wise Girl is transcending with their debut full length album, You’ll Just Have to Wait. Complete with rock and roll beats, spunky pop melodies and Weitz’s classic bold voice, You’ll Just Have to Wait has something for everyone. Last month, the band teased their album by releasing the first single “Stuck in This” via social networking properties, receiving an overwhelming response and praise from fans. “Stuck in This” was merely the tip of the iceberg for this emerging band, as they unleash their best work to date with the release of You’ll Just Have to Wait, now available on iTunes.

After the unexpected admiration of their first EP, Wise Girl was determined to return to the studio to build upon their feat and in-turn have created 10-original tracks that encompass their blood, sweat and tears. Lead singer Abby Weitz calls the album “a big step towards Wise Girl’s future. We put a lot of time and effort into this album and the three of us are really proud of what we have achieved. It brought us a lot closer as a band and we all admire and respect each other’s musicianship even more so than before”.

Below, crank up, listen to and watch So Broken. Whoa!!

“Stuck in This,” the lead single features Weitz’s virtuous vocals, which are complemented by the fiery guitar riffs of Chris Fasulo and vigorous drums from Harry Keithline. The infectious title track “You’ll Just Have to Wait” highlights Weitz’s signature and unparalleled melodies with her witty lyrics. Digging deep, Weitz penned a snapshot of her life, from love lost and friendships soiled to internal conflict, leaving a piece of her heart in each track. Weitz tells fans that the album comes from “something so heart wrenching, turned into something positive. All of the pain that I went through was worth it because of the outcome; some of my favorite songs that I’ve ever written.”

The debut album from the pop/rock band was produced by guitarist Chris Fasulo and written by singer/guitarist Abby Weitz. Authentic lyrics, wit and unexpected tonalities color this band’s uniquely intricate songs. The idea of performing music for a living has been the dream of each member since childhood. Abby and Chris both picked up the guitar at age thirteen, while Harry picked up the sticks at age eight. Abby originally started the band and looked to Chris for help in producing her tracks; the musical chemistry between them was evident from day one. The earnest lyrics and harmonic sounds of the band are in large part contributing factors to the Wise Girl success.

Anxious to share their latest work with their devout Wise Girl fans, You’ll Just Have to Wait is finally available on iTunes. Be sure to share your love with Wise Girl and follow the band at www.WiseGirlMusic.com or www.facebook.com/wisegirlmusic.

WISE GIRL – S/T 3 Song EP Is An Inviting Listen Into Melodic, Power Pop/Rock

WISE GIRL – On Monday, December 3rd, I posted a press release featuring the 5 piece Melodic, Power/Pop Rock band known as Wise Girl. This talented band from NYC has a 3 song EP available on iTunes for just under $3 (U.S.) and it’s worth every Rockin’ penny. After I’ve listened (many, many times) to this Wise Girl EP, my only wish is for a full-length album from them… and soon! Um, please.

Sure, the lyrics of Wise Girl’s songs may not be about dragons, skulls, gore, insane keg parties and the fiery depths of hell; my Metal mind is cool with that and it’s all good. The exclamation point is that Wise Girl Rocks like yummy ear candy; while fusing an abundance of retro feel within their ultra relevant Rock sound.

There are those (not so often) occurrences when I hear a new (non-Metal) band for the first time and I wish I could be a record executive at a well-known record label and sign them on the spot. Wise Girl is one of those occurrences to my ears… and senses.

Then again… I’m the dude that feels Cheap Trick should have been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame many years ago. On that off-topic note, there’s a bit-O Cheap Tricky vibe that does resonate from some of the melodies of Wise Girl, I will confidently add.

As I listen to the vocals and guitar of Abby Weitz, I cannot resist being reminded of my very early teen years and introduction to The Runaways (and eventual) Joan Jett solo albums. However, that was then and this is now. My appreciation for the Rock sound that Abbey Weitz is creating with Wise Girl feels so right to me. The mainstream should either move or get out of Wise Girl’s way. It’s a band like Wise Girl that clearly defines what a musically primed (underground) Power/Pop Rock band sounds like in 2012.

Abby and her band have created three songs that are clearly the welcome mat to what I believe will be an astounding Rockin’ and Rollin’ career for them. With such an over abundance of crap vocalists and bands winning the “lottery” on televised talent shows these days, Wise Girl is a solid-as-steel reminder to me that credible (Rock) musicians are out there, earning their way up the ladder and glowing with the skills to make a difference in the (severely) watered down mainstream of Power/Pop Rock.

Fashion Designer Brand Kate Spade NY Features Energy-driven single “Set in Stone”

Los Angeles, CA – Driving power pop/rock band Wise Girl will soon release their self-titled three-song EP on iTunes. The New York fivesome is equipped with straight forward talent and no need for gimmicks. The WISE GIRL EP showcases the perfect combination of poppy melodies, rockin’ guitars and quirky songwriting technique all wrapped together in a no-nonsense attitude.

After two years in the making Wise Girl is the brainchild of songwriter Abby Weitz (vocals, guitar). Wise Girl includes Chris Fasulo (producer, lead guitars), Abby Lee (backup vocals, tambourine), Harry Keithline (drums) and Sean Kane (bass). Growing up, front woman Abby Weitz was such a music fanatic that she had to listen to The Beatles in order to fall asleep at night. At age 11 she started taking drum lessons which then led to her interest in learning to play the guitar at age 13.

Born to lead, Weitz started a Strokes cover band in high school followed by an original band under the name of Drella, playing basement/garage shows in her hometown of Long Beach. After dropping out of college six weeks in because “it wasn’t her thing”, she started a punk band with her best friend Liz called The Lookaways.

Determined to take over New York City, The Lookaways played notorious clubs around Manhattan such as Sin-E, Lit Lounge, Don Hill’s, including the legendary CBGB’s and on a mini East Coast tour, played a few shows on the Van’s Warped Tour. After The Lookaways split, Weitz decided to start a music publishing company called Wise Girl, stemmed from her strong belief in “Girl Power” and she ended up using the name for her current project.

Watch and listen to Wise Girl perform So Broken Live At Beta Records below! Whoa!

Elements of Wise Girl’s music can be attributed to their influences drawn from some of Weitz’s favorites such as The Ramones, The Beatles, The Muffs, Letters to Cleo, Weezer and 60’s girl groups. The band’s feisty single, “Set In Stone” is a perfect example of how the band creates a rhythmic blend of catchy melodies, gritty guitars and witty yet matter-of-fact lyrics. Produced by Chris Fasulo, the Wise Girl EP’s content centers on love gone wrong and the battles that we face when caught in the middle of it.

The internationally known designer Kate Spade featured Wise Girl on their website and blog as a runner-up in a Battle of the Bands contest to open for The Vivian Girls at their SXSW showcase. They were also chosen as one of the 15 bands to represent Manhattan in New York’s Annual “Battle of the Boroughs,” sponsored by New York Public Radio in June of 2012. Picking up a consistent following along the way, Wise Girl has performed at notable NY music venues such as Mercury Lounge, The Bowery Electric, Piano’s and The Knitting Factory.

The band has recently opened up for major pop punk band The Dollyrots and Rock ‘n’ Roll sensations, Prima Donna and performed as a part of the 2010 and 2011 CMJ Music Marathon. To add to the list, Wise Girl did a performance/interview on the national television show Beta TV and earned a mention in an American Songwriter’s article (“How Does an Independent Artists Stay Relevant While Creating New Music” – Sept. 2012). In September of 2012 Weitz scored an endorsement deal with guitar company, Daisy Rock Guitars.

With success at their fingertips, Wise Girl is ready to take it to the top! For more information, visit their website.
