She’s Not Dead is a youthful and explosive All Girl Band that fills the room with excitement at every show! Playing a mix of Hard Rock & Pop, with a touch of Punk, the girls have created a sound that is entirely their own. As an all female group, they stand out from other bands, turning many first-time listeners into hard-core fans.
With lead singer Kira Nesser fronting the band with her guitar strapped on like a weapon of rebel glory, She’s Not Dead leaves no room for doubt that something exciting is happening. Kira is backed by three spirited and authentic female musicians, who, with their unbridled enthusiasm, will show off their youthful frenzy when they perform. Samantha’s drums add the power to the music, while Annelise keeps her bass locked in to them, but loose enough to add a punk feel. Keiko fills in the background with warm keyboard layers. Don’t be surprised when you find yourself shouting and singing along to their songs upon listening to them for the first time!
The girls of She’s Not Dead have been writing their energizing and arousing songs for 3 years and all these songs were written to be performed live with extreme passion and excitement. They have played many successful shows in their hometown of Portland, Oregon at the Hawthorne Theatre, Tonic Lounge, the Branx, the Backspace, the Mt Tabor Theatre, the Red Room, the Annex, and the Wonder Ballroom, as well as several other venues.
