The Total Bettys
The Total Bettys are a four-piece, queer, feminist pop punk band from San Francisco, California. Songwriter Maggie Grabmeier and guitarist Reese Grey joined forces in March of 2015; they came for the face melting girl-power, but they stayed for the friendship. Soon after, the pair met their beloved bandmates Chloé Lee (bass) and Kayla Billos (drums).
The Total Bettys are inspired by the angsty, but somehow positive energy of contemporary pop punk, including bands like Sløtface, Bully, All Dogs, and Charly Bliss.
The Total Bettys’ first full-length album Peach was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grace Coleman at Different Fur studios in San Francisco. The album deals heavily in the fear of messing things up, but tucked between the declarations of awkwardness is sincerity about the importance of friendship, vulnerability, and expressing compassion.
