The polls have closed for Rockwired.com's recent Artist of the Month campaign. Voters from all over the U.S. made their vote count and One Eyed Doll and their latest release Break. Described as Strawberry Shortcake meets Gwar and Valentines Day meets Halloween with the visual impact of Japanese Anime, One-Eyed Doll is an award-winning Austin, Texas
power rock duo - comprised of Kimberly Freemen and Jason Rufuss Sewell (aka Junior) - with a loyal global fan base and extensive international press exposure. In 2009, 2010 and 2011 the group swept the SXSW Music
Awards in categories such as Best Punk Band, Best Metal Band, Best Goth Band, Best New Band, Best Acoustic Guitarist, Best Electric Guitarist, Best Producer, Best Drummer, Best Songwriter, Best Female Vocalist and more. The group has independently released three full-length albums, appears in Revolver, Guitar World and Guitar Player magazines and has left several national tours in its wake including major anime conventions (DragonCon, AniMix, IKKiCON, Anime Overload, ShadoCon, etc.) Blazing the band's wildfire buzz amongst their growing legions of religiously crazed fans is One-Eyed Doll's cult leader: the impossible-not-to-love Kimberly Freemen, whose punishment is so sweet you'll beg for more.
Other nominees for Artist of the Month included Tom Wopat, Em, All The Right Moves, Jason Hemmens, Ostwelve and Mozik.
