Bitter Crush is a modern rock band comprised of four old friends. Channelling the influences of 60s Rock N’ Roll, Classic Rock, Punk and Alternative into a modern sound, Bitter Crush can be described as a foreward-looking throwback.
Bitter Crush are:
Amy Gruber Phillips - Vocals, Keyboards
Lou Vito - Guitar, Synths
Steve Buzbee - Drums
Joe Rowley - Bass
WRAT listeners will recognize Lou Vito and Joe Rowley from their work in the regionally renowned group The Whirling Dervishes. Their cover of “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch,” is a Rat Radio Holiday Classic.
Bitter Crush recently put out their self-titled debut EP. You can score a copy of the disc HERE.
