O, the band bio. Well this is how the story goes….. Girl In A Coma decided to take a small break so Nina could put out a really rad solo record. Jenn and Phanie thought , ” Now that we have some time let’s start a dirty messy punk band! “. Guitar players came and went and they ended up with a boy named Aaron. Singers came and went and they ended up with a gal named Letty. Recently signed to Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records. Download free song now at blackheart.com/fea
Only Beast
“Of course, one of the more impressive three pieces in Houston, Only Beast will bring their Sleater Kinney meets Yeah Yeah Yeahs sound to the show after Kirby. If you haven’t seen Only Beast, I’d seriously suggest catching them, as they have such a magnetic energy, that you’re mesmerized by their stage presence. Their singer Danielle Renèe might be one of the strongest vocalists in Houston that you’ll hear in a long time.”

– David Garrick, Free Press Houston

“This is a band that everyone in Houston needs to see. If not for John’s drums or Danielle’s hauntingly fierce vocals, than to at least watch their guitarist Peter play bass the same time he plays guitar.”

– David Garrick, Free Press Houston

“Only Beast will be getting things started, which is like saying a freight train will be on stage. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this three piece in my life. […] Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that they’re great and that their album, ‘Only Beast’ was one of my favorite of last year.”

– David Garrick, Free Press Houston

“Houston’s Only Beast are a fascinating band, combining elements of post-punk, progressive rock, and goth rock into a sound all their own, with vocalist Danielle Renee wailing atop the mélange like a 21st century Siouxsie Sioux.”

– Kelly Minnis, 979 Represent

“Only Beast has a great sound and are true professionals. This makes them a credit to Houston rock and any lineup they are on.”

Debrah Skelton, Red Publication

“I stumbled across Only Beast simply because of their name and instantly became enamored of their dynamic and incredible front woman Danielle Renee, and the sheer raw power of the rock and roll that comes pouring out of her throat. Let’s turn our attention now to another key ingredient […] drummer John Salinas. The man is like some sort of ordered chaos who beats up and down the sides of songs in a whirlwind of rhythm that always feels like its on the verge of falling apart, the way a death-defying trapeze act does. It never falls, though.”

– Jef Rouner, Houston Press

“Who they got was Danielle Renee, a waify ball of fire with a huge voice able to match Bernick’s Cure-ish guitar wail and the progressive thunder of Salinas’s drums.”

– Jef Rouner, Houston Press

“Only Beast – friends have raved about ‘em for a while now […] their blues-tinged prog-rock is pretty damn mesmerizing, especially with frontwoman Danielle on the mic. Definitely going to have to hear more …”
