Biography:
The Amorettes are an all female trio of the classic rock and roll persuasion. Gill and Hannah met at music college bonding over a love of old school rock n roll, after a few line up changes Heather, Hannah’ s sister, was brought in on bass to complete the band.

Gigging since March 2009, these girls have travelled all over Scotland and released their first ten track album “Haulin’ Ass” (which Classic Rock magazine gave 8/10) on May 2009, after seven months of work.

The scottish trio supported Dave Evans, former singer of AC/DC, in the Glasgow gig of his first UK tour on June 2009.

Spawned from the same gene pool and influenced by ‘DC’s fat riffs, Van Halen’s non stop energy and the deafening power of Airbourne. Hard hitting, fast thinking, these girls are here to prove they mean business.

Lineup:
Gill Montgomery – Vocals, Guitar
Heather McKay – Bass, Vocals
Hannah McKay – Drums, Vocals

Discography:
2010, “Haulin’ Ass” (LP)

Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.
