Queen Kwong

Bad Lieutenant EP

Out Now

Instant Records

As a young girl growing up in Denver Colorado, it was always clear that Carré Callaway aka Queen Kwong was going places, and getting there fast. Carré (pronounced “Car-ray”) taught herself to play guitar at the age of 13 and began performing in the local folk scene almost immediately afterwards. By the time she was 17, she was opening for Nine Inch Nails at their arena-sized shows for their 2005 With Teeth tour- at Trent Reznor’s personal behest.

In person, she’s polite, pleasant and mild-mannered Carré Callaway but on stage, the wild, uncontrollable Queen Kwong emerges and those two contrasting sides of her personality have always been in place since she was young.

What results is dangerously unpredictable blast of rock ‘n’ roll that sits in the lineage of such primal and visceral acts as The Stooges, Nirvana, early Hole, and even Queens Of The Stone Age. “I always associated with rock ‘n’ roll with not being square and wimpy but it seems like nobody wants to make noise or be loud or be aggressive right now,” states Carré, as that angry side begins to gently simmer under her surface. “I’d rather sound like shit and put on a great show than sound perfect but wimpy. There needs to be something more in your face and more aggressive.”

Having done a few soul-destroying laps around the music business matrix already, Queen Kwong is ready to forge her own autonomous path that goes from town-to-town and venue-to-venue. It’s the long way around to be sure but in the end, Queen Kwong is destined to finally end up in the right place, at the right time.
