Lovebettie embarks on an east coast tour to South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas on the Awake and Dreaming Tour!
Lovebettie was nominated in the final 40 to perform at the 2014 Grammys by Fall Out Boy, Emeli Sandé, and Austin Mahone out of the country’s top bands. The Grammy Gig of a Lifetime Contest sponsored by Surface and CBS featured over 6.5 million votes and 2,000 artist nominations. Lovebettie trended between 1st and 2nd throughout the contest and was featured on thousands of newspapers, blogs, radio stations, and TV channels all over the United States. A very special thanks goes out to all of our fans who voted and spread the word throughout the competition. The national support and exposure was unbelievable.
Rollingstone.com recently named Lovebettie a “Band to Watch”, stating “Called “Pittsburgh’s Hottest Band,” the four-piece Lovebettie have brought their self-proclaimed brand of “swagger rock” to the attention of Jon Bon Jovi – who handpicked the band to audition – and as an afterparty act on Lady Gaga’s Monsters Ball tour. Led by powerhouse singer and pianist Alexandra Naples, the group has been compared favorably with Fiona Apple.”
Lovebettie returns to The World’s Biggest Music Festival – Summerfest in Milwaukee after being voted Emerging Artist for the festival last year. Here is a live performance of their song “Your Own Worst Enemy” of of the new CD, Rise, filmed by Springwood Productions. Filmed by Victor Fink and Edited by Jon Garcia and Jessica Garcia

We don’t often get to tell all of you about some the more serious business happenings behind the scenes with Lovebettie, but we will give a little. Last night, Lovebettie showcased in NYC at The Bitter End for Major Label A&M Octone with the agent who signed Maroon 5 courtesy of Music Gorilla. Being honest, this is actually the 4th major label that the band has showcased for or met with in the past year. Lovebettie had a great time and was well received. The agent was a great person and we are developing a relationship. Where it leads from there, only time will tell. But we are always grateful that Lovebettie gets these kind of opportunities, and it is because of the support of fans like you that these things happen…Thank You!
