"Metamorphosis: Ultrafix transforms itself, audience"

It's not hard to spot Ultrafix's Angie DeVore (aka anG deVore) among the crowd at America's Pub.

The outfit's energy and lack of reliance on rock cliches proves beyond refreshing. And the band members will tell you that they've worked hard to move against the tide of expectations while also growing a larger audience. And although Ultrafix's sound could easily find room to accommodate The Big Rock Ballad, Fawcett's reluctant to even use the "B" word.

Hasty is hardly a word that one would use in conjunction with Ultrafix. Rather than rushing to release a full-length album, the quartet's been methodically collecting material, making sure that whatever comes out is meaningful. "Before you get signed to your first record deal, you have all the time in the world to write that first album," Green said. "We want to focus on writing the best songs that we can."

But energy is one thing, making a connection with the audience is another and that has been one area in which the quartet has excelled.

It would seem that a band bent on pulling listeners from one place to another couldn't help but make an album that does the same. Green agreed and said, "It's like a book and each chapter tells its own story."

DeVore, the band's songwriter, said that record, like the outfit's shows will take listeners on a kind of journey: "I think that, start to finish, the record will [reflect] the growth of a person," she noted.

Given the band's tenacity and its powerful live show, you can't help but believe it's true. - F5, Wichita, KS by Jeff Beaudoin

"Harder Beat (Dallas, TX)"

Ultrafix - Curtain Club 8/23/03
Tulsa’s Ultrafix made it into Deep Ellum on this evening to deliver a little of what they like to call Rocktronica. Ang DeVore (guitar/vocals), Beau Charron (guitar), Mike Fawcett (bass) and TJ Green (drums/samples) are a powerhouse live band that’s so catchy and original that they’re difficult to classify. Standout songs were “Walk On Air,” “Fling” and “Rounder.” (All off their EP and available at shows). If you like electronica mixed with alternative rock you will love Ultrafix. They have many accolades already in their career including winning a Jim Beam/Rolling Stone sponsored national band search, beating out over 4,000 bands. By the end of the set, every man, woman and child in the place had the band firmly entrenched in their memory. Get your fix of Ultrafix ASAP. (John Binder) - John Binder

"Austin Statesman"


Where from: Tulsa, Okla.
Series of words meant to convey their sound: Rock, electronica, pop
More info: Official Site
Fun Fact: SXSW veterans from as far back as 2000, Ultrafix was Jim Beam's "Unsigned Band of the Year" in 2002.
Bottom Line: They work a lot of samples and keyboards into a backbeat of heavy guitar riffs. Not too bad, really, for a bunch of folks from Oklahoma. Lead singer Angie DeVore has a Pat Benatar quality to her voice, and we like that. - Austin360.com - Meet the bands: A Scouting Guide

"The Wichita Eagle"

It's a fitting song for a band that seems to be on the cusp of success. Tulsa-based Ultrafix has just been named the Jim Beam Rolling Stone Band of the Year, a competition in which fans vote online for their favorite band.

It's a notable feat -- Ultrafix was one of thousands of bands that applied to be featured in Jim Beam's band search contest online (at www.jimbeammusic.com).

(People) don't think you rock with a girl singer, but Angie just blows everyone away. She's the kind of girl who will climb on speakers. She puts on a show. - Rod Pocowatchit

"NoCover Magazine"

Take heed, those looking for the secret formulas to get your music heard and respected, or at least honestly reviewed. Ultrafix works hard to get their music heard by everyone with ears and that persistence is going to win them the prize. Read on!

Tulsa, Oklahoma. Not the first vision springing to mind when asked to word associate ROCK BAND, but still more and more gems from the beast we call rock are sprouting their tiny heads from all points around the globe, yes, including good ole Tulsa, Oklahoma. Formed in 1999, Ultrafix heralds the genre "Rocktronica," blending traditional rock and roll with electronica flare. Samples, loops, and keyboard combined with hard edge guitar, drums and bass create the platform from which lead vocalist Angie delivers melodic power and kittenesque attack. - Rob Quillen

"Tulsa World"

Ultrafix drew a sizeable crowd. During the band's hourlong set, DeVore stalked the stage, emanating a sexy and sassy vibe while wailing out songs like the band's stand-out tune "Fallen."
...drummer T.J. Green held his own on stage as he bashed his kit with reckless abandon while his dreadlocks slashed at the air. - Matt Gleason

Feeling a bit camera shy


ULTRAFIX is a straight-up rock-n-roll band with an electronica flare that's been together since '99 and has been both a Jim Beam unsigned "Band of the Year" in 2002 and also GoGirlsMusic's best unsigned female act in the nation in Last Band Standing 2003. Their sound is explosive rockin-ass beats that are downright disrespectful, with edgy guitars and melodic female vocals that greet you with anG's come-hither grace then knock you out with their powerhouse live show.

Flash forward to today, Ultrafix will be performing again during SXSW in Austin, TX at the Invasion of the GoGirls Showcase on March 18th. Ultrafix has been on a bit of a hiatus working on their first official LP release scheduled to come out in 2005. At the end of 2004, after a busy summer playing four music conference showcases, MECA in Chicago, IL in May, MMC8 in Harrisburg, PA in June, DFEST in Tulsa, OK in July and NTNMF in Dallas, TX in October, and playing the Tulsa State Fair and KMYZ 104.5's annual Edgefest, they have been busy in the studio with their producer Andy Kubiszewski recording new tracks for their upcoming 2005 debut LP release. They also opened for Sparta, Coheed and Cambria and Motion City Soundtrack at LaZonaRosa at the Amp Mt. Dew/Alternative Press Magazine Dew Circuit Showcase at SXSW 2004. They were invited to play the showcase by the organizers of the event, AMP/ Mt. Dew and Alternative Press Magazine.

In 2003, ULTRAFIX won GoGirlsMusic.com "Last Band Standing" Nationwide Battle of the Bands in Austin, TX featuring the hottest female acts in the country, after winning the title "Band of the Year" in 2002 in the Jim Beam Rock Band Search, sponsored by Rolling Stone Magazine. Ultrafix was picked out of the over 3900 bands that submitted and ultimately competed against 220 bands during the 11 month competition. And then, finally competing against the 10 finalists that had all won their respective Band of the Month titles, Ultrafix emerged victorious as the favorite unsigned band.

ULTRAFIX began in July 1999 by Angie and TJ, and by September of 2000 The group had put together a tour of the West Coast after attending SXSW 2000 and using crafty marketing and relentless promotions. They even showcased in Portland at NXNW 2000. This tour basically taught the band all about "paying dues" and touring essentials. The band met up with Todd and Toby Pipes of "Deep Blue Something" at the North Texas New Music Festival after their tour and then worked on their first 5 song E.P.recorded at Bass Propulsion Labs in Dallas, TX in early 2001.

The Fall of 2001, TJ met Andy Kubiszewski of "Stabbing Westward" (also The The, Crowded House and Nine Inch Nails) and he is currently producing the band's first official release. He has produced their singles "Rounder" and "Fallen" which are available for streaming on the web and on cd singles at their live show. For the new release, Andy has been hands-on in the studio both engineering and producing most of the tracks for the upcoming release.

Currently, the band is also an AMP/Mt. Dew Energy Drink 6Pack band featured on Volume 12 of the AmpEnergy Drink 6Packs. Also, anG is endorsed by Dickies Girl Clothing and Daisy Rock Guitars, TJ is endorsed by Saluda Cymbals and the band is endorsed by Elixir Strings.
