Biography

In 2006, guitarist/singer/songwriter, Tim Burchfield, met music therapist, Angie Burchfield in Columbus, Ohio and formed Hideous Pink. After playing in Columbus Ohio for a year, they moved to Austin, where they met ex-Marine and current music student, drummer Tim Garza. The three of them began a residency at Ego's in Austin on South Congress which lasted for a year and a half. Influences such as Buddy Rich, Tom Petty and Janis Joplin have inspired this group of musicians to create a variety of rock and roll sounds, incorporating many different flavors of percussion and harmonic progression. In June of 2010, music student and bassist Brad Peterson joined the group. Currently, the band's revenue consists of income from shows and CD sales. Each performance is marked by the lyrical exchange and interactions on stage by the dual lead vocalists, Tim and Angie, as the lyrics are written to facilitate a dramatic musical dialogue between the two. Interacting with the audience frequently, they have managed to engage a loyal fan base of fun loving people. The music and it's lyrics is light hearted, dance-able and upbeat, utilizing slightly different instrumentation than standard rock bands: keyboards, acoustic guitar, electric bass, drum kit, djembe, and other percussive anomalies. Currently, the band is returning from Angie's maternity leave. The Iron Cactus and The Highball are two of their most frequently played venues. The band does not like to play cover tunes very often, as their passion lies in the performance of the original tunes that they create together. The band is looking forward to developing a wider fan base in order to finance completion of their new CD and then tour with the new product when it comes out in the spring of 2011.
