Recently Kink Ador showcased at SXSW 2015, presented by SESAC, and has released their first full length album "Set Me Free" this year. Kink Ador is a rock band, a power trio, featuring artists and songwriters Sharon Koltick, and Michael Kisak. The lead singer-bassist-trumpet-blowing empress, Sharon, spent her youth raging along the Indiana highways in a slick Camero with T-tops. She cruised those highways with no turns, listening at full volume to the folk music of her Midwestern tribe, classic rock and roll.
Influenced by bands such as The Talking Heads, Queens of the Stone Age, The Police, Lou Reed, PJ Harvey, The Clash, David Bowie, The Dead Weather, Elvis Costello, and Nick Cave, Kink Ador's music delivers with a driving, straight-ahead clarity hard to find in a post-pop wasteland. Koltick brings a sense of purpose and controlled fury to the fore. Her voice conjures the hiding spirit, both power-packed and expressive.
The band is based out of Nashville, TN and has shared the stage with bands such as Wye Oak, Mona, Chancellor Warhol, Empires, Clinic, and performed at US Festivals CMJ, Summerfest, Oranje, Snowball, and in Canada at CMW and Indie Music Week. In Rome, Italy Sharon has collaborated with Italian composer Andrea Farri and their music has appeared in Italian films and theater productions.
Kink Ador's latest release "Set Me Free" (2015) produced by Ken Coomer is a righteous ride through the American dream with songs like "Pilgrim Song" a moody soaring anthem which sounds like a Pink Floyd song from the future.
