Austin, TX-based alternative-pop band 3 KISSES has played over 75 shows since their inception in January 2004 and show no signs of slowing down. They have rapidly progressed to playing big events such as the Motive Bison Stampede Half Marathon and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure where the band performed for over 19,000 race participants in Austin and 9,000 participants in Waco. 3 KISSES supports breast cancer research by donating a portion of their CD sales to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and the American Cancer Society. Tish lost her mother to breast cancer in 1989 and in addition to supporting the cause with the music of 3 KISSES; she has recently become a published author with her story, Legacy, in Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen's Chicken Soup for the Recovering Soul.
Tony is an attention-grabber as he simultaneously plays guitar, Roland PK5A midi pedals with his feet and sings backing vocals. Tish's unbridled energy will draw a crowd from the back of the room to the front of the stage in seconds flat. Martin Folkman, Publisher of the Musician's Atlas writes, "3 KISSES is fronted by the kinetic Tish Meeks who no guitar, mic stand or stage can contain. [The band] wasted no time winning the crowd over to their infectious songs and spontaneous performance." The primary goal of 3 KISSES every time they take the stage is to have fun! Tish's interaction with Tony and drummer Jennie Rutherford combined with her commanding stage presence invite the audience to be a part of the 3 KISSES experience.
An exquisite concoction of unusual guitar work blended with atmospheric vocals and dynamic drums, 3 KISSES encompasses the spectrum with the driving rock-funk of "Yellow" the dreamy, melodic yearning of "Wings" and the retro, 60's rock vibe of "Wastin' Time". Says Jay King, VP of Classic R&B, Thump/Universal, "Great songwriting - catchy, poppy songs. An excellent mix of yesterday and today." This diverse band is out to show you a good time!
