Tickledpink - a Cincinnati-based trio featuring local scene veterans Scott Covrett (guitars/vocals), Bob Nyswonger (bass/vocals) and Bam Powell (drums/vocals) - celebrates the release of its latest CD, a self—titled affair, Friday and Saturday at Sidebar in Covington. The disc contains 14 diverse, hook laden tracks, with songwriting credits equally distributed between the three gifted and experienced musicians.
Fans of the pyschodots / raisins / bears school of Rock (Nyswonger has been involved in all three, while Powell and Covrett were an earlier members of the raisins) take note - Tickledpink picks up the Pop/Rock torch and sprints to the finish line with this superb effort. The musicianship is expectedly flawless (all three have done extensive session work), but it's the eclecticism (the songs veer from Blues to Roots Rock to Power Pop) and songwriting that'll have you coming back for more.

TICKLED PINK Tickled Pink (Self-released)
Another release springs up from the ridiculously deep and talented pool of musicians who came of age in the Sylvania area in the mid-'70s.

Tinkled Pink is a Cincinnati trio featuring Bob Nyswonger on bass, Bam Powell on drums, and Scott Covrett on guitar. All of them were involved with the Raisins, which spawned the Psychodots and the Bears, both of which Nyswonger is also a member. And they're all from this area and transplanted to Cincy, where they play in various groups.

It's a complicated musical family tree that has one common theme: it always produces excellent artistry.

Each one of the Tickled Pink members works his own stylistic turf - Nyswonger, skewed, clever power pop; Powell, thoughtful rockers, and Covrett, jazz and blues-infused rock - and the songwriting chores are shared evenly.

Highlights include Powell's oddball Tom Waits-y "Barefeet," Nyswonger's anthemic "Standing 8" (which sounds like a great long-lost Bears outtake), and Covrett's smoking blues closer, "I Know It's Wrong."

These guys are veterans, but there's nothing tired about their sound, and the more "Tickled Pink" plays the better it sounds, revealing the kind of quirky virtuosity that only the real pros can offer. Here's hoping they find their way to Toledo soon.
"Tickled Pink" is available at CDbaby.com.

Bio

Tickled Pink is a musically muscle-bound trio of life-long pros with each member bringing world class instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills to the table. Youll hear elements of blues, jazz, R&B, psychedelia, and power pop at a Tickled Pink performance. Youll also hear 3 distinct lead vocalists with solid harmonies. The music ranges from very tightly arranged tunes to sonic frameworks where the players are free to explore to outer reaches of their collective improvisational skillsthink modern Cream. Being veteran players, the band is comfortable in about any performance situation from large festivals to very intimate clubs.

Scott Covrett (guitar), Bam Powell (drums) and Bob Nyswonger (bass) began playing together as Tickled Pink in 2003. All are former members of the Raisins (one of Cincinnati's most influential and prolific original music bands of the 70's-80's). Scott & Bob cut their teeth as teenagers playing on the road with early 60s icon Johnny & the Hurricanes. Bob recorded and toured with Adrian Belews Bears. Bam recorded and toured with Mussel Shoals legends LeBlanc & Carr. You've also heard these guys on TV and radio advertising - they are premier Cincinnati session players. Their first CD release demonstrates the groups eclecticism, musicality, and strong songwriting. If youre looking for a band that delivers, youll want to get Tickled Pink
