Profile Brass Kitten was formed at their Location of Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA. The music isn’t original by any means but it is still catchy and singer Steve Philbrook sure has a great set of pipes.

Brass Kitten was a band that toured extensively from 1988 through 1992, playing between 250 to 300 shows a year. From Winnipeg, Canada to Key West,Florida, Brass Kitten played the circuit nonstop. Brass Kitten is made up of four individuals: John Jeremi – lead guitar and vocals, Sid – drums, Steve Philbrook – lead vocals and guitar, Kiar Olson – bass and vocals. With this line up, Brass Kitten successfully released their first album, “EZ-N-Pretty” via Emerald Records. After Kiar’s departure from the band in 1990, Kellie Roulette joined. BK toured “EZ-N-Pretty”, winning ‘National Pick Hitof the Week’ on Z-Rock National Syndicate radio.

In 1992, Brass Kitten had just finished recording the tracks for “Across America” when bassist Kellie was in a serious motorcycle accident. Kiar filled in for Kellie, but his recovery was doubtful and Brass Kitten disbanded. Through time, Kellie has made a full recovery and now plays with Sid in Tuff 2000 out of L.A.. Steve lives in Minneapolis and currently plays in Kanine Zowie, while John and Kiar live in Green Bay and have a band called Ugly Stick.

Kind of like a mix of Steelheart and Skid Row. Now if you dig these other bands that I mentioned, which I do, there is a chance you’ll treat this release by Brass Kitten like GOLD. This is one of those albums that comes as a pleasant surprise. Everything seems to fit together. Good songs, good hooks & melodies, worth a place to collectors list!!!
