"Kitten With a Whip: Cutesy vs. Tough"

Is Moesch the kitten with a whip? Yes and no, she says. “The thing people say about me is that I’m different onstage. Dressing in skirts and fishnets once in a while helps.” Friends of friends, she says, came up with the band name. “And it worked.” There’s a yin-yang aspect to it, she explains, “cutesy versus tough.” When asked if the kitten with a whip theme connotes an underlying sexuality, Moesch says, “it could be about anything you want it to be.” - The San Diego Reader


The Strength



Kitten With a Whip is an energetic alternative rock band led by all-female band veteran Audrey Moesch. Formed in San Diego in 1995 by Audrey and then lead guitarist Mark Cover, its sound melds eclectic grooves of funk and world music to rock and progressive grunge to get its message across.

There’s something for everyone, as singer/guitarist Audrey composes such rousing, relationship survival anthems as “I Believe in Me” and angst-filled (6/4-timed) rocker “Monster” to the happy dance tunes of world beat-inspired “JuJu” and Latin-influenced “To Be.” Her influences include The Beatles, The Police, U2, The Pretenders and other female singer/songwriters like Alanis Morissette, as well as dada and Pearl Jam.

Completing the lineup are experienced jammers of any style: rock and jazz bassist Laura Payne, Los Angeles Academy of Music grad lead guitarist Eddie Kolenski and heavy rock and groove drum veteran and teacher Rick Favale.
