Not your typical Austin band, Tottsie and The Flames encompass several genres of music while concentrating on a signature sound. Because Tottsie and The Flames include singer songwriters, the sound, the lyrics, and the vibe are all their own. While their influences include everything from rock to country, the bulk of the sound is power based and high octane driven.
Formed in 2012, the members came together to form a one of a kind sound. Because of the members diverse backgrounds, Tottsie and The Flames can do it all, but prefer to concentrate on what they do best, hard-driving rock and roll with a lot Texas thrown in.
Fronting the band, Tottsie owns the stage during their performances. She has been singing and performing for over 20 years.
