The Scars Heal In Time

    In the heart of the Houston, the largest city in Texas, you'll find two young musicians doing what bands twice their age have yet to accomplish. The Scars Heal In Time, which had their first practice in late July, 2010, have played over a hundred shows since forming, have opened for Bad Company in front of over 10,000 people, and have released an album titled Twisted Truth. What makes all of this even more impressive? They've accomplished all of this before their 18th birthday.
    The band consists of sisters 16 year old Kayla(guitar/bass/vocals) and 13 year old Tayler(drums/screams) Smith. Their young age comes at an advantage and a disadvantage. "Being a young two piece, people don't want to take a chance on us playing at their bars and clubs. But once we get in we are always asked back. People tend to underestimate us because we're young and look cute and innocent." Says the band.

    The girls are influenced by Nirvana and many female fronted bands. Joan Jett is a huge inspiration for them and the girls also look up to local Austin band, One-Eyed Doll. "They have helped us out a lot and are really great people."
    When asked to describe their sound, the band had trouble coming up with a straight forward answer. "That's hard... Cause we are so many different things. Something along the lines of Alternative / Rock / Punk / In Your Face."
    The local Houston scene is very metal, according to the girls. "There are a few bands around who don't fall into the category but the majority of them are metal. Strangely, the metal crowds love us. We are very involved in the local music scene. In order to gain respect and support you have to give it. We go out to other local shows whenever we can. We love our local music scene."

    Recently, the band released their album, Twisted Truth, in April 2011. The band talked a bit about the album.
"If you ask ten people what our sound is you will get ten different answers. We once got "Heavy Mellow" Not quite sure what that means but we like it! We write from the stuff we see and hear about daily. Since we are so young we don't really have a lot of life experience so we put ourselves in other peoples shoes. 
The songs on Twisted Truth are mostly about relationships but not what you would expect from us. We've had grown men come up to us and tell us they can relate to our songs which is an awesome feeling.
So far we haven't taken it online. We should be doing that soon though. We have sold quite a few actually. We have received a lot of airplay on internet radio shows. One of the songs "Love Or Death" (Which is a Romeo and Juliet type story) is the fade out song on the internet TV series "Cyphers" starring Debrianna Mancini.  She is that actress that was in "Crazy Hearts" with Jeff Bridges."

    Clubs, concerts, festivals and even motorcycle rallies, the girls play it all. "We've played over 100 shows with as few as 20 people and as many as 15,000.  Obviously, we enjoy the bigger shows more, but we just love playing." Their shows are loud and awesome. "Expect it to blow you away. And definitely expect the unexpected."
    The band is really itching to get back into the studio "We have some new songs we want to get recorded.  We are starting to play more dates out of town. Some not too far like Dallas, San Antonio but we are also going to Colorado and in December we will be in Nashville."
    Be sure to check out the band's Facebook!
