Biography

"Killing! Transmission rocks more with each listen" -- Vernon Reid

BLACK SUGAR TRANSMISSION is the brand new musical initiative of a NYC-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist called Andee, known best (til now) as the leader of pOP*stAr*kiDs, a much loved New York band from 2000 to 2006, whose debut album enjoyed a nine-week stint in CMJ's Top 200 chart in the spring of '00.

BST's self-titled debut album, described as "fist-pumping, melodic and highly destructive dance-rock" (David Adler, Philadelphia Inquirer and NY Times), is an uber-catchy, turbo-charged amalgamation of hard rock, electro, postpunk, glam and pure pop.

The BLACK SUGAR TRANSMISSION debut CD has enjoyed heavy radio play at college stations (over 70) throughout North America.

USE IT e.p. coming spring '09, featuring all-star guests like VERNON REID (Living Colour, Yohimbe Bros, etc), ACEY SLADE (Murderdolls, Dope, etc), PATTI ROTHBERG and DUG PINNICK (King's X).
