The best kept secret in music


" Review"

"Listening to this stuff is a VERY pleasant civic duty! Too Many Empty is easy on the ears...there is a bit of a 10,000 Maniacs feel to this...but this band clearly has rock ambitions. The lead vocal is just quirky enough to set this music apart from lots like it, and as soon as I tried to box it into a category, it got interesting..."

"I would definitely give you guys a listen if you swung through my town--I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with this! I like a lot of it so far."
- Unknown Musician

"Too Many Empty are Filling Up"

Barely a year in existence, Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s Too Many Empty is one local band that is showing tremendous promise. The group—a catchy, dynamic rock band fronted by a female singer with impressive pipes—has been barnstorming through the regional music scene (and the online world) with a passionate, infectious sound that has won them many new fans with every live date, every Internet download, every radio spin.

The band recently made its debut on the world's biggest rock stage—New York City. On May 13, 2006, and played Kenny's Castaways in NYC's Greenwich Village neighborhood. Kenny's is a famed club known for being the place that the likes of Aerosmith and Bruce Springsteen played in their early days. An audience of nearly 100 people—many of who heard of Too Many Empty via Internet music sites and plain old word-of-mouth—came out for the early 8pm show, and were visibly captivated during the 40 minute set. A number of people even got up and danced. And remember, this was NYC, the media-saturated, music-jaded town of all towns! Very impressed by their live show and original songs, the club has already scheduled Too Many Empty for another show later this summer (September 9th). Plus, the feedback from their performance has scored them another NYC date at the Baggot Inn on July 8th. They will also be going back to Philadelphia on July 6th after a strong debut there this past April.

Here at home in Lancaster, the band is also getting more and more people talking. They have a slew of live dates coming up, including: the Chameleon Club (a headlining show on June 3 with Ennui and Army of Me), the Millennium Music Conference 10 in Harrisburg, the Lancaster Catholic High Festival, and a benefit event at the Marion Court. Each time they play out, more and more fans have come out.

Out in the boundless world of the Internet, Too Many Empty has found a following as well. They were recently featured as a "Spotlight Artist" on and continue to attract many new fans through their page and their own well-designed web site.

It's hard to pinpoint what it takes to be a band that really clicks with people. In the case of Too Many Empty, the secret may lie in the sheer amount of fun and energy they exude when on stage. You just can't help but feel positive when watching them. And that positivity is purely contagious. Couple this with singer Kat Rees' fully alive voice and pulsing songs that feel natural and stick with you, and you have a recipe for a musical force that people genuinely connect to.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Too Many Empty hails from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a town best known for its farmland and Amish population. TME is the result of a collective ideal—a unified desire to create music that captivates, inspires, and leaves a worthy mark on the world.

Formed in May of 2005, Too Many Empty came together with a unanimous determination to succeed. A strong work ethic and a good chemistry between members have provided an impressive movement in such a short amount of time. Almost immediately the band began tapping the live music scene, testing their material and refining their stage performance. The positive reception provided reassurance and fueled their efforts further.

Too Many Empty has reaped such rewards as: regular dates at the historic Chameleon Club (Lancaster), Kenny's Castaways (NYC), and a request to play the annual Blythe Glass Studio Event which attracts over 500 people and spotlights up and coming original acts. The band also had their original, “Jonah’s Song”, used by Koser Jewelers as the corner stone music piece of the company’s 2005-2006 radio and TV marketing campaigns. Other accomplishments include regular "spins" and requests to appear as the "weekly artist spotlight" on WRVV the River 97.3(Clear Channel), 93.5 WTPA (Cumulus Media ), Q94 WBXQ, and Recently the band has had the pleasure of adding new college radio stations to their growing list of stations. Also, Too Many Empty was featured on as a "Spotlight Artist".

Outside of Too Many Empty's collaborative efforts, personal accomplishments have also brought attention to the band. Lead singer Kat Rees lent her voice to 'A Lancaster Christmas III', an annual charity album of Christmas songs performed by some of the region's best talent. The proceeds of the album went to the Lancaster chapter of Crispus Attucks. Also, Kat was selected to perform the National Anthem at one of the first games of the Lancaster Barnstormers’ inaugural season.

With their visually intoxicating live performance, and catchy rhythmic rock songs, Too Many Empty brings a passion and professional demeanor that is instantly being recognized. Currently, Too Many Empty is aggressively marketing the band, playing out regularly, and recording at their base, FLLstudios.
