"The Pretty Please"

SXSW Wednesday-1am, Caucus Patio

Carrie Clark went through the rock & roll wringer with Sixteen Deluxe and came out the other side to found one of Austin's most promising new bands. Her hard-won wisdom shines through in hypermelodic songs like "The Rock Star Guide to Falling Apart," while Kevin Whitley (Ed Hall, Cherubs) and Matt Hovis (Cotton Mather) supply the rhythmic wallop. – Christopher Gray - The Austin Chronicle


DEMONSTRATION, a four song EP produced by The Pretty Please and Robert Harrison (Cotton Mather) in November of 2003, scheduled for release in Sept 2004.
Song list:
1. The Rock Star Guide to Falling Apart
2. Falling Star
3. The Artificial Hearts
4. Hit Parade



The Pretty Please met several years back when Caroline Clark (Sixteen Deluxe) and her then label Warner Bros hired Matt Hovis and K Whitley’s graphic design firm to create the cover art for their new release. Carrie went through the major label rock and roll wringer and just barely made it out to the other side, taking a much needed two year hiatus – just long enough to fall fantastically in and out of love. She and K, bonding over mutual heartache, began writing music together in his moldy basement bachelor pad in late 2002, and things quickly started looking up. K brought in his partner in design crime to play bass, having originally met Matt recording early Cotton Mather material. When they realized that the only person who seemed to understand what they were going for on the drums was actually K, the guitarist, they fired the drummer, Carrie picked up her guitar and K picked up the sticks himself.
The trio has just completed their first EP, titled DEMONSTRATION, which was recorded and co-produced by Robert Harrison (Cotton Mather) and is scheduled to be released in September of 2004. The band is currently playing shows in Austin, and doing regional dates supporting bands like The Fiery Furnaces.
