“Chicago’s ROMANTIC REBEL has four songs to make me love them, can they do it? Yes, they can and they did it within the first thirty seconds of the first song “Waste My Mind” on their debut EP.

Becoming a promotion machine, the group immediately started booking shows, passing out demos, and filmed a video for the lead track “Dirty Love Song”. Front woman KT started using social media tactics to get their music in the hands of many industry people, as well as, many well known hard rock bands.
