Calico Queen

Calico Queen

 Burlington, Washington, USA

Calico Queen is a hard rock explosion laced with the beautiful singing of Kaitlyn Raymond. We are a heavy band with psychedelic aspirations and a sometimes soft underbelly, we are here to make people move their hips and shake their hair.


Calico Queen began as a way to get out some of the songs that Robbie and Kaitlyn had been writing during the summer of 2010. Dillon and Connor had previously played with Kaitlyn in the short lived band The Reservation Cops, so when we decided to start playing live we had an easy choice on who to add to fill the roles of drummer and bassist. We cultivated a setlist of songs during the winter of 2010 and the beginning of 2011. We used our influences to create songs that were heavy and sweet and danced in places that are hidden in the shadows but that can lead you to the light. Some of those influences include The Misfits, Blink 182, The Beatles, The Doors, Say Anything, Queens of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Wolfmother, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, Jeff the Brotherhood, The Seeds, The Dead Weather, The White Stripes, Steppenwolf and everything in between. Honestly we are all fans of music in general and we take everything we hear and love and use it to fuel our own musical exploration. We are a hard rock band with a chick singer with guts and thats what sets us apart from the norm. We are always trying to expand our musical horizons. We want nothing more than to bring what we have to offer to the table, and bring our music to the people who are longing to hear it.
