Hailing from the frozen Land of 10,000 Lakes, Pretty Ugly represents the new wave of rebellious and inspired musicians who are unconcerned with genres and scenes.
Formed in 2006, the band's 2016 core is a power trio of bass, drums and guitar blending the sounds of modern rock &classical urban music challenging their audience with their unique blend of Punk, Funk, Ska, Reggae, Dub Reggae, Jazz, Metal and Hip Hop.
Forged in the fires of 90’s hip-hop cyphers, house parties, and backyard rock n roll barbecues, front man “A-Ball” Muse is a multi-talented force to be reckoned with. Chunky throwback guitar riffs meet carefully crafted street lyricism reflecting a sick society full of chaos and hypocrisy.
Bassist Rod Glasper holds down a unique style of funk driven bass and rock sensibility while drummer Paul Hunter switches effortlessly between boom-bap rhythms, reggae one-drops and blistering punk rock barrages.
The edgy dynamic and energy of this Minneapolis based band has spawned a growing
popularity on the college circuit as well as amassing attention from southwest and northwest music markets, resulting in supporting gigs for national headliners in Austin and Seattle.
Fresh off their sophomore EP "The Best Part,” Pretty Ugly continues to expand and evolve their musical awareness with their fresh ideas and passion commanding attention from the Twin Cities and National music scene.
