Abbie Huxley's song "Quicksilver" was chosen to be included on Double D Records Compilation, "A Tribute to Elliott Smith". While on the Hardcore Troubadours Tour Abbie performed a cover of Elliott Smith's song, "Memory Lane" at Uncommon Ground which was used in "Future Butterflies" a documentary by Karla Davis about Elliott Smith which premiered at the Eyedrum in Atlanta, GA on July 13th 2005. Both his songs, "Quicksilver" and "Humble Pie" have spent time in the #1 spot in the final round of's highly competitve radio and CD compilation contests. This all on the heels of the release of his debut E.P. "Pop[R.E.D.]"



Hey my name's Abbie Huxley. How did we get started on this? Well... I ran into producer/drummer Donnie Boutwell at his studio thru a Myspace ad that said Open House Party-Free Beer. That night as the party was winding down, I dropped off my self-produced E.P. Pop[R.E.D.].

Out of over 18,000 songs, three of my tracks from Pop[R.E.D.] had broken the Top Ten on's All-Time Alternative chart with both Quicksilver and Humble Pie going to #1 and Luvsik going to #7. Also, both Quicksilver and Humble Pie were distinguished as Tracks of the Week and Tracks of the Day. This is all based on listener reviews. is an indie music site which boasts thirteen of its top ranking artists being signed to major labels and was named by Time Magazine as one of the 50 Best Websites.

Using the E.P. as a "blueprint" Donnie and I re-recorded 4 songs from Pop[R.E.D.], Quicksilver, For Me, Humble Pie, Luvsik and a new song; You Oughta Know.

I ran into bass player Jonathan Nesta when I needed somebody to fill in for an upcoming show. As soon as I heard Jonathan play I knew I'd never need to call my old bass player back. Not long after that Donnie started playing drums. Jonathan and Donnie are genius players with great ideas and most of the time I feel like Im the one trying to keep up.

My current material reflects my roots as far as Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith but not the guitar rock of artists like Van Halen and Def Leppard and AC/DC. These days I listen to everything from Bob Dylan to Rob Zombie and I havent felt like I've recorded a record that really reflects the full scope of what Im influenced by so Im really amped up about making a new kick-ass rock record. This is a departure from my previous alternative/folk/rock productions in that the majority of songs are up-tempo with big guitars and keyboards. Think NIN meets Scissor Sisters and you'll have an idea.

"We're REALLY picky about what goes on the front page... and Pop[R.E.D.] is one of the best cd's I've ever heard"---Derek Sivers, President/CEO of CD Baby

"It is a rare occurrence when an artist reaches out and takes the listener on a magnificent aural journey that completely satisfies the soul. Abbie Huxley is one of those rare individuals. Pop[R.E.D.] is nothing short of spectacular. It is almost impossible not to hit replay after each song."---Yer Mama's Guide to Internet Music

"Abbie Huxley's album, 'Pop[R.E.D.]', strikes a haunting and mournful chord...Huxley wails with about as much passion as one could possibly express...beautiful melodies with lyrics that will make you stop in your tracks..."---CD review

"Effulgent, hypnotic, passionate! If you hear the CD then you have to see this guy live. He has a raw brooding power that pulls you in with "Lovesick" and "For Me". Then, you are sent to some place you had never examined within yourself. This is what art is about."- Elaina

"Pop[R.E.D.] seems to draw on a ton of different sounds. Imagine a blender if you will, throw in some Radiohead, maybe a pinch of lounge, handfuls of retro staples, and acoustic guitar trimmings similar to my beloved Elliott Smith. But don't be fooled, Abbie Huxley is a completely original sound"- Mat Wisner, The Daily Grind.

The album, which was written, performed, and produced by Huxley charted and spun on over 40 CMJ reporting college stations. The songs reveal a multifaceted artist coming to grips with love, addiction and personal loss. With the candor of his lyrics, soaring beautiful melodies, and the haunting quality of his songs, Abbie Huxley is gaining fans in the States and abroad two ears at a time
