Artistic vision, intricate musicianship, dark, poetic lyrics
exploring heavy, controversial topics and a profound message are the
very essence of Picture Me Broken, a breath of fresh air band that
shatters any "young band" or "female-fronted" stereotypes. Although
PMB is mostly comprised of 18-year-olds, they are one of the few
bands right now trying to bring back true artistry in this
trend-domin...ated music scene. PMB delivers larger than life,
authentic rock n' roll laced with modern innovation.
Front-woman Layla "Brooklyn" Allman refuses to be placed in a
category with other "rock chicks" or female lead singers as she
draws most of her influence from male artists and believes that
women should be just as dynamic. "PMB is not just a 'female-fronted'
band, PMB is a rock n' roll band", she comments.
Brooklyn, and bassist Austin Dunn, have seen this band through since
age 12 (2005) and will see it through to the top. The two original
members are now confident that they have put together a lineup that
offers stellar musicianship, energetic performance, and dynamic
personalities. Drummer Connor Lung offers spot on performance,
machine-gun like double bass capabilities and undeniable charisma.
As for guitar work, PMB offers dual-lead guitar players Dante
Phoenix and Jimmy Strimpel whom switch off lead detail in displaying
their distinguished styles. Their solos, dual leads, and harmonies
add to PMB's unique sound and complete the live show experience.
Soon to be released is their debut album on Standby Records "Corrupt
Me" produced by multi-platinum producer David Bendeth.
Picture Me Broken appeared on MTV2 and was awarded "Best Breakout
Artist: Bay Area" by MTV and also landed a spot on a date of Linkin
Park's Projekt Revolution Tour with their songs "Blind and "Live
