Album Notes
1220 bring echos of the seventies style of rock, but with a good dose of their own swaggering style. With the rock-solid rhythm section of Bill Van Vleet and Michael Cover anchoring the twin guitar attack of Nick Kurtz and Ricky Dover, Jr. this band has the power to back up vocalist Jacob Gibson's soaring vocal lines. Take the unpredictability of early Aerosmith, and mix a little bit of Led Zeppelin and T. Rex, and add a little Motley spice, and you've got a band that sounds a bit like 1220.

Formed in Knoxville in 2001, the band released a their first self-titled CD in 2005. After going through a lineup change in 2006, the band recorded the "Miss Legendary" EP, with former Superdrag drummer turned recording uber-god Don Coffey, Jr. at the controls. But now with their latest effort, "Killin for a Livin'" finds the wunderkinds of the Knoxville TN local scene, set out to cover new territory by incorporating a perfected power pop shimmer into its already electrifying sound. With every show, in every city, 1220 keeps turning heads with their infectious high-energy shows. Once you see the band live, you'll never forget it, and there's no better time than right now.

So what are you waiting for? Get off your ass and go see 1220!
