PictureMeFree is a South Carolina based Rock band comprised of 5 life-long musicians between the ages of 21-23. In December 2007, they recorded their first EP, “Wake Up Alive” at Pig Pen Studios in Athens, GA. In April 2008, PictureMeFree held a release party/ performance at historic Tiger Town Tavern in the college town of Clemson that was attended by over 1,000 fans. After developing a great relationship with the band in the studio and witnessing the madness of their CD release party (responsible for the first crowd surfing ever in Clemson), the owner of Pig Pen Studios, Daniel Maldonado Collins, decided to sign them to his independent record label, Pig Pen Records. As of August 1, 2008, after little more than 3 months of availability, they have self-sold over 600 copies of the EP. The EP?s success is due in large part to their relentless gigging. PictureMeFree has played over 30 venues spanning from Columbia, SC to Atlanta, GA. In their first year (August 2007- August 2008), PictureMeFree has played OVER 100 SHOWS and has been re-booked by every single venue they’ve played! PictureMeFree has also secured endorsements from Yamaha guitars, DW drums, and Line 6 amplifiers. In April 2008, PictureMeFree opened for pop princess Colbie Caillat at the Solid Orange Live Festival that also featured Wyclef Jean, Bob Marley’s band The Wailers, The Whigs, and 80’s sensation Eddie Money.
