Nominated for Country Single of the Year – 19th Annual LA Music Awards “Thousand Miles From Nashville”
The PainKillerz are a country/blues/rock band new to the Southern California scene. Lead by veteran singer/songwriter Frank Battisti and top slide guitarist and lap steel player Brian Rogers, The PainKillerz blend a gritty southern rock and blues guitar sound with memorable vocal melodies that leave a long-lasting impression on their audiences.
In early 2009, The PainKillerz released their debut CD, Thousand Miles From Nashville. They are currently supporting CD sales by playing live in front of large audiences all over Southern California.
Following their debut CD, The PainKillerz were nominated for 2 LA Music Awards in the category of “Country Album of the Year,” and “Country Single of the Year” for the title track Thousand Miles From Nashville. Critics label the band as a “modern day Petty, Dylan or Eagles, with melodic vocals, raw fiddle and gritty slide guitar,” yet fans call The PainKillerz sound “vital and original.”
