Katy Guillen and the Girls celebrate their new album at Knuckleheads tonight
Katy Guillen and the Girls have stolen our hearts countless times since 2013, when they became the latest hometown talent to rise to national recognition, taking fourth place at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. This past August, they received a Pitch Music Award for Best Emerging Artist.
At last, the band has a full-length album to its name: a fierce, untamed collection of skin-searing tracks that draw on Guillen’s uninhibited guitar riffs, the unforgiving tone of Claire Adams’ bass line, and the barely controlled blasting of Stephanie Williams’ drumming. The Girls release the album Saturday at Knuckleheads for what may be the most face-melting show of the month.
