Album Notes
Queen Kwong is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and award winning cat handler (sort of) Carré Callaway, who was discovered at age 17 by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. In 2005, Carré was invited to support NIN on its sold-out "With Teeth" tour, where she performed as a solo act with only a microphone and a guitar. Four years later, Callaway once again opened for Nine Inch Nails on Reznor's final tour, "Wave Goodbye."

What began as a curious 4-track analog cassette recorded in Carré’s living room soon grew to become Queen Kwong, a full rock band that can be heard at venues across Los Angeles. Presently, Queen Kwong is in the last stages of finishing her debut, full-length record, which will be available 2010. Hardy har har har...meow

"The audience’s reaction to Queen Kwong was nothing short of great. Their mix of alternative guitar riffs, tender yet aggressive vocals, coupled along with gorgeous harmonies from a violin and cello left me in a good mood for the rest of the night. Hopefully another big name will take them on the road soon, as they definitely have the wings for this flight called the music biz." -LA RECORD (Review of Queen Kwong opening for Nine Inch Nails)

"Queen Kwong has so much going for her: solid musicianship, solid sound, and a wonderful look, it’s the total package. If I were to make a band, this would be the band I made; it would damn near be the sound I made. It’s fresh and yet familiar. Queen Kwong can be so delicate and beautiful, and at the same time dirty and harsh. Basically a catholic school girl dressed up in her uniform, singing like choir of angels all while giving a come hither look." - Chicago's Love Shack Music Blog

"she snarls, yelps, growls, drips disdain and reminds me strongly of Prince of Darkness Trent Reznor's breathy, emotional range." -Morgan Lee/DreamerM (Fan review)

"Her songs would fit in nicely with "Live Through This"-era Hole, bringing an off-kilter meldocism that wails and teeters beautifully on the edge." -Seattle's Groupee.com
