… Not two-eyed doll… they’re One Eyed Doll, only a drummer… and Kimberly!
One-Eyed Doll is a duo from Austin, Texas that have gained an exceptionally loyal (and rapidly growing) fan base since 2006 with consistent touring, a solid memorable live performance, and a DIY connection with the fans. The band’s live set is an interactive fan-friendly experience that’s both heavy/sinister and sweet/vulnerable.

One-Eyed Doll has had over 1 million YouTube views and has had music featured on several video games, movies and TV shows, including MTV’s Road Rules!
