Tough On Fridays-USA

Tough On Fridays is a rising alternative rock duo from Georgetown, Texas. Comprised of best friends Katie and Caleigh, the two have turned their shared passion for music into an exciting blend of pop and rock sounds. Inspired by iconic alternative bands like Paramore, Green Day, Basement, and Nirvana, Katie and Caleigh created Tough On Fridays in 2017 after years of inspiring each other as independent singer/songwriters. Working together, Katie and Caleigh have created music that brings a refreshing new sound to the alternative rock genre, making Tough On Fridays one of the most promising new acts in the genre! As Tough On Fridays continues to grow and develop their new sound, they have garnered serious recognition from the music industry. In 2018, they earned themselves live performances in the Texas Indie Fest show during Austin Music week, as well as a spotlight performance on the PBS show Texas Music Café. Tough On Fridays was also selected as the ION Indie Magazine’s September/October ReverbNation Artist of the Month, a recognition that acknowledges upcoming independent artists who have shown signs of a promising future. Perhaps the most exciting of their numerous awards, Katie was the first female to ever be nominated and selected as the Indie Bassist of the Year during the TC Indie Awards of 2019 in the UK. The award itself is a testament to the growing overseas fan base that a small two-person duo from Georgetown, Texas has already been able to achieve. Fans of Tough On Fridays will be excited to know that the alternative rock duo has many new projects on the way. They recently finished recording a ten-track record with producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith. The project is sure to be a milestone for the band, as it will solidify their hard work in creating a unique new sound. Still, Tough On Fridays has already shown that they are perhaps the most exciting new act to arise out of the alternative music genre in the last few years!

Friends since elementary school, the bond between Katie (Vocals, Bass, Guitars) and Caleigh (Vocals, Guitars) proved to be unbreakable throughout the years to follow as they grew up together. Both discovering their passion for music and talents early on in life, with Katie learning guitar at five years-old and Caleigh at seven – they’ve collaborated from the very first moments they could. Refining their own identifiable Pop/Punk style, practicing, playing, and performing over the years to follow, Katie & Caleigh dialed-in their sound until they found the perfect mix to represent themselves as artists, individuals, and eventually as a band. Bursting into the music scene as Tough On Fridays officially in 2017, the Georgetown, Texas-based duo has continued to surge in popularity with critics & fans alike. Tapping into a unique magic that was all their own, Tough On Fridays began to release singles into the online world and firmly established themselves within the local scene as a reliable source of electrifying entertainment. Featured in massive festivals like Texas Indie Fest, where they were selected as crowd favorites, & showcased on the nationally syndicated PBS show The Texas Music Café, Tough On Fridays came storming out of the gate focused & ready to make their mark in music history. Embracing every opportunity to plug-in & play for the people, Katie & Caleigh continued to find their way to the spotlight center-stage, and every time they had the chance to perform, they brought the crowd right on to their side by putting their heart & souls on the line and into every note they sing & play. Holding nothing back in their wildly expressive sound, fusing melody & attitude into powerfully memorable hooks with massive crossover appeal – Tough On Fridays creates bold music that the people truly want to hear. Katie and Caleigh have already had the opportunity to work with impressive names & renowned studio legends like Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, The Cure, U2), Sam Pura (Story So Far, Basement, State Champs) & Beau Burchell (Moose Blood, 888, Saosin). Tough On Fridays is also signed to Dead Rose Management LLC, fully represented, and ready to rock the mainstream. Every step they’ve taken has been another giant leap forward in their music & career and they’ve shown no signs of slowing down even one iota since declaring this adventure was officially on. They’ve had their music selected by the Pandora & Spotify curation teams for their websites, they’re going on a tour of their homeland starting this September on Texas State Technical College campuses, and they’re continually working hard at creating killer new material for future releases. In short, they’re just getting started and Tough On Fridays already has incredible achievements & noteworthy support backing their every move. They couldn’t be more excited to share their journey with each & every one of you out there as they dominate 2018, & beyond.
