3 Kisses from Texas Houston

Artist History

3 KISSES jumps from one high energy style to another with traces of just about every cool female-fronted rock band of the last 20 years. The band has been compared to an array of artists including the Cranberries, Luscious Jackson, the Breeders, Joan Jett, the Buzzcocks, Letters to Cleo, Wendy O. Williams, Blondie, the Ramones and everything in between. They have coined the phrase ‘Texas Party Punk’ to describe their music. 3 KISSES’ live performance has been called ‘freakin’ explosive’ and lead singer/guitarist Tish Meeks has been referred to as ‘a ball of fire on stage.’ Along with husband, Tony Meeks (guitar) Tish launched 3 KISSES in Austin, TX, in January 2004. Since then they have performed over 350 live shows for over 350,000 people. Tish and Tony Meeks were featured on ABC’s ‘Wife Swap’ in 2007 performing for almost 15 million viewers. Bassist, Brian Hymel, and drummer Andrew Wood complete the recipe for 3 Kisses’ punkish ‘cuddle-angst’ with a positive, party vibe.

Tumultuous lyrics delivered in a zany, upbeat fashion has become a 3 KISSES trademark and make their songs addicting. Martin Folkman, Publisher of the Musician’s Atlas writes, “3 KISSES is fronted by the kinetic Tish Meeks who no guitar, mic stand or stage can contain. [This band] packs more energy into a 3-minute song than all the WMD's combined!”

3 KISSES has been featured on the FOX 7 Morning Show in Austin, TX, WOAI-NBC in San Antonio, TX, KTRK-ABC in Houston, TX, FOX Morning Show in Houston, KLBJ 93.7FM in Austin, KPFT 90.1 in Houston, Indie-Music.com, Female Musician Magazine, One Way Magazine, Origivation Magazine, The Macon Telegraph, The Brenham Banner Press, The College Station Eagle, EDGE Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, The Austin American Statesman to name a few.

The band premiered their first music video Yellow in September 2004, released their debut CD Wings in November 2004, and released their sophomore album, It All Comes Down To Me in June 2006, which they followed up with an East Coast Tour. Their 3rd album, Nut Job was released in May 2007. Following an East Coast Tour in September 2008, 3 KISSES signed with Rat Pak Records and released their 4th album, American Breakdown in February 2009. Notable performances include multiple showcases during SXSW in Austin, Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA, Independent Music Conference in Philadelphia, PA, Dewey Beach Music Conference in Dewey Beach, DE and Austin’s Heart of Texas Rockfest.

In addition to their regular tour schedule, 3 KISSES supports breast cancer research and treatment programs by performing at Susan G. Komen Races across Texas. Tish’s original story, Legacy, about the loss of her mother to breast cancer, appeared in Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen’s Chicken Soup for the Recovering Soul in December 2004.
