3 Kisses Bio:
TEXAS PARTY PUNK! Husband-wife team, Tish Meeks (lead vocals, guitar) and Tony Meeks (guitar, Roland foot pedals) launched 3 KISSES in Austin, TX, in January 2004 and since that time the duo have performed over 230 live shows for over 265,000 people. Tish and Tony Meeks were recently featured on ABC’s ‘Wife Swap’ garnering the highest ratings in the show’s history with almost 9 million viewers. Charismatic rhythm section featuring drummer, Tim Legan and bass player, John Amelang round out this high-energy, crowd pleasing act.
An idiosyncratic combination of alternative, pop, rock and punk filled with catchy guitar hooks and introspective lyrics, the heartfelt vocals and positive party vibe make the songs of 3 KISSES addicting. Tumultuous lyrics delivered in a zany, upbeat fashion has become a 3 KISSES trademark. 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.” 3 KISSES single, “Girls’ Night” was selected by Rock Solid Pressure as one of the Top 15 Songs of 2005, was the opening track on Netshows Program 8 compilation and the song was released on the Oasis Alternative Sampler to 560 college radio stations across the US. Madalyn Sklar, founder of GoGirlsMusic.com, calls 3 KISSES' live show "An exhilarating mix of pop tunes that keep you wanting more. Front woman Tish Meeks has a way of grabbing your attention and not letting it go."
