Abby K is a 17-year-old bassist, songwriter and singer from Mooresville, North Carolina. She has had a strong passion for music since a young age, and began playing during her early teenage years. Her father greatly impacted her musical taste by exposing her to classic and hard rock early on. After attending a KISS concert and being inspired by Gene Simmons (KISS), she picked up a bass and instantly fell in love with the instrument.

While playing bass, she decided to begin singing and took on the role of lead singer in her bands. In the summer of 2018, Abby K attended GRAMMY Camp in Los Angeles, where she played bass. She was one of only three bassists selected to attend from across the US. At GRAMMY Camp, she grasped a better understanding of the music industry and knew that she wanted to take her musical career to the next level.

Abby K has opened for Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper) on 2 different occasions with Nita even joining Abby onstage for a rousing rendition of Iron Maiden’s, The Trooper! Additionally, Abby was invited by the casting agent of America’s Got Talent to audition for the show.

She recently signed a management deal with Producer / Writer, Eddie Z, of The Playroom, formed a new band, and her singles, “It Should Have Been Me” and “Dirty Love,” have been released worldwide through The Orchard, a Sony owned company.

Abby’s music has a hard rock edge with sing along pop choruses. If Lemmy was female, you’d have Abby K.

“Great Job! Like the song…At the end of the day it’s all
about the song.”
Ryan Roxie – Guitarist Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper

“Support the next generation of rock – @abbykonbass

Abby K – New Single “Dirty Love” – A Rock Legend In The Making

Contrary to popular belief – Rock is not dead, it’s alive and well and living in Moorseville, NC through the considerable talents of Abby K, a seventeen-year-old singer, song-writer and virtuoso Bass player. Following in the footsteps of Bass playing / vocalist luminaries such as Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), Lemmy (Motorhead), Gene Simmons (KISS), Paul McCartney (The Beatles), and not forgetting Rock Goddesses Suzi Quatro and Kim Deal (Pixies) – Abby is forging a new era of Rock dynamism – backed with adrenaline soaked riffs, thunderous grooves and gut wrenching emotion layered through each of her richly produced songs.

“This is the career I’ve been preparing for my whole life and I’m ready to be an inspiration to other girls that want to rock”

Abby was first drawn to the sound and feel of heavy Rock after seeing Gene Simmons at a KISS concert with her Father, she started her first band at 13-years-old and quickly developed a natural affinity with the Bass. In the summer of 2018, she was one of just 80 people (and only three Bassists) to be accepted out of 1,500 applicants to Grammy Camp in Los Angeles. It turned into an incredible learning experience for Abby, particularly when it came to fine tuning her song writing ability.

Another landmark accomplishment for Abby came through her collaboration with Nita Strauss, the guitarist known for her work with Femme Fatale and Alice Cooper’s band. Not only has Abby opened for Nita, she had the joy of playing alongside her on stage.

Later that same year Abby released her first single; “It Should Have Been Me”, distributed by The Orchard, a Sony subsidiary. That single went on to play in 7 countries and spent 5 weeks in the top 5 on Baltimore radio and 3 weeks in the top 10 on Detroit radio.

For 2020 Abby is ready to set the world on fire! She was awarded ‘Bassist of The Year’ by The 2020 TC Indies just ahead of the release her new single; the heart-stopping “Dirty Love” – with a fast paced stadium filling sound and vocals that cut like a knife, both playful and tough, it’s the perfect Rock anthem for staying true to your convictions. There’s confidence and a maturity bursting out of Abby’s lungs, we feel that this year she’s going to break all the rules.
