Baltimore Magazine has named Signal 13 as ‘Baltimore’s Best Band’ and Vicky Starr as one of the ‘Best Musician/Vocalist.’ Formed in the Mid-Atlantic region, Signal 13 is a high octane rock band fronted by lead vocalist Vicky Starr. Continuously performing in and around the Mid-Atlantic area, the band has built a tremendous regional buzz on the strength of their live show which led to opening spots with KIX and Great White including many festivals.
Vicky states; “The idea behind Signal 13 is to perform high-energy material and we are really excited to bring this energy to everyone that hears us play.” Their goal is to always put on the best show every night entertaining fans through their stage show, music and audience interaction.
The band’s debut is packed with anthemic choruses, melodic riffs and muscular focus. Their debut release, ‘Destination Unknown’ was released on April 17, 2020.
Baltimore-based rock band SIGNAL 13 have spent most of the last year turning heads with their debut original release in April 2020, “Destination Unknown.” The band has made their mark with a mix of high-energy rock n’ roll that combines the best of modern and classic rock. Their first three independent singles and videos, “Dirty”, “Stay With Me”, and most recently, “All Fired Up”, have risen quickly, with over 3+ million streams and views on all platforms.
The band’s profile continues to expand via press coverage with Fireworks Magazine, Power Play Magazine, Brave Words (video premiere/review/interview), Bass Magazine, SleazeRoxx, Artistic Platforms Magazine, Flirt Magazine and KNAC to name a few. The band’s music has been played on Sirius XM, iHeart Radio, and over 200 other stations. In September, Signal 13 won "Best Band" in Baltimore Magazine's annual "2020 Best of Baltimore Readers' Poll" and in November, the band achieved a worldwide #1 on the Radio Indie Alliance Top 75 Chart. They have opened for national acts such as Great White and Kix and have planned dates with Tesla, Slaughter, LA Guns and others. Most recently, Signal 13 was invited to perform at the 2021 Monsters of Rock Cruise - Operation Monster Beach festival in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, as part of a lineup that includes headliner Alice Cooper, along with Lit, Winger, Great White, Kix, LA Guns, Vixen, Bulletboys, Faster Pussycat, and others.
SIGNAL 13 are always looking for new opportunities – new venues, tours, goals, and fans – because that’s what it’s all about: the fans. Every day is a chance to bring their music to all corners of the world.
Lead vocalist, Vicky Starr states; “The idea behind Signal 13 is to perform high-energy rock with a modern twist. We are really excited to bring this energy to everyone that hears us play.” The band built their reputation through hard work, touring the East Coast of the US and performing 150 club and festival shows since forming, honing their stage show and writing several albums worth of original songs. Their goal is to create the best original high energy music they can and to always put on the best performance every night - entertaining fans through their stage show, music and audience interaction.
The band’s debut 'Destination Unknown' is packed with anthemic choruses, melodic riffs and muscular focus. It has been well received by more than a dozen reviewers who have compared their music to such bands as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Kix, Joan Jett, Cinderella, and Suzie Quatro.
Flashback Friday - one year ago Signal 13 performed our original music for the very first time live as part of the 2020 Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA. We took the stage at 10 pm at The Gingerbread Man to a full house with folks that had come from far and wide to share the moment with us.
We were floored when we kicked off the first song and saw members of the audience singing back the chorus even though no one had ever heard the song before. It was an unforgettable kickoff to an amazing year. Our debut EP was released two months later and everything went crazy from there.
Thank you to everyone who have been supporting us since - we love you! Stay safe and we can not wait to see you again live!
Amazing... a full four months after it’s original release, Signal 13’s “All Fired Up” is still playing on radio worldwide and is on two radio charts: #22 on the World Indie Music Chart Top 100 (Worldwide - all genres) #39 on the Euro Indie Music Chart (Europe - all genres) https://t.co/hVkstXzfIY
