Making their first steps onto the scene in early 2005, Lovebettie began as a songwriting duo of founding members Alexandra Naples and C.T. Fields. Influenced by everything from the grandeur of modern rock, to the swagger of 1920's Jazz, they created a powerful and compelling sound of pop and rock charged with feverish rhythms, emotive lyrics, and a sultry blues-drenched fusion. Solidifying this sound are the added talents of Dan Mulkeen (Players School of Music, Clearwater Fl.) and Larry Shotter (noted Pittsburgh session drummer).
Since this time, Lovebettie's persistent drive and tireless work ethic has helped them evolve from a local favorite to a regional success. Having toured a majority of East coast and Midwest states, they have shared the stage with multitudes of national acts including: Lifehouse, Semi Precious Weapons, Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Guster, Bowling for Soup, Rusted Root, and many more. In 2010 they performed The Lady Gaga Afterparty for her Monsters Ball Tour, and released two music videos for airing consideration on MTV, VH1, and Fuse. Recently, in 2011, Lovebettie released their new EP, engineered, produced, and mixed by notorious producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple, Hoobastank) and already finished a full US tour from Boston to the SXSW Festival in Austin Texas in March 2011.
