The Ladybirds

The Ladybirds


The Ladybirds are a Rock & Roll Party from Louisville KY!


The Ladybirds are a five-piece Rock & Roll band based in Louisville,
The group originally started as a project between vocalist Sarah Teeple and
bassist-songwriter Jaxon Lee Swain in 2004. The duo fine-tuned their songs and
future performances from home while searching for a full and full-time band.
Soon they connected with self-taught blues and rock guitarist Max Balliet.
Continuing to pinpoint the sound of The Ladybirds, the band played their
first show in Louisville in December of 2005.
Combining elements of classic Rock & Roll and Rockabilly, classic Country,
Punk Rock, Soul, Garage and Girl Group sounds, the band has shown its craft
to be unique indeed and has earned a healthy Kentucky following.
Since then, The Ladybirds have accomplished much in their hometown of
Louisville. In 2006 they recorded their first collection of songs, entitled
"Whiskey & Wine." In addition to successful shows in Bloomington, Indiana,
the band has performed in many bars and clubs in the Derby City.
Now a quintet featuring drummer/percussionist Sean Johnson and Hammond organ
virtuoso Anthony Fossaluzza, the band's live performances have become more
explosive each time they book a show. Teeple's voice (likened to those of
Wanda Jackson and Loretta Lynn) and onstage appeal mesmerize the audience
while the fiery guitar of Balliet leaves passers-by breathless.
In the past two years, The Ladybirds have shared the stage with The Greenhornes, Lucero, Murder By Death, Southern Culture On The Skids, Shooter Jennings, Unknown Hinson (May) in their hometown of Louisville Kentucky.
