Artist Information Instrumentation JIM ORTIZ - guitar vocals CHRIS ORTIZ - drums GIAN ORTIZ - bass and backing vocals Biography This trio have been hitting the Austin, Tx music scene since 2003 with their own brand of psychedelic-blues driven rock and roll. Signed to Austin-based label Arclight records in 2004, they have since made consecutive appearances at the annual South by Southwest Festival in Austin, two appearances at the Ohio based Emissions from the Monolith Festival (2005 and 2007) , The Texas Roller Derby, and not to mention the Republic of Texas Bike Rally (2007). Having shared the stage with such acts as Nashville Pussy, Young Heart Attack, Atomic Bitchwax, Lions, Alabama Thunderpussy, Dresden 45, Bible of the Devil, Honky, The Ugly Beats, Kylesa, Dirty Sweet, Dixie Witch, and The Black Angels, amongst many others, Amplified Heat have been catching the attention of fans running the gamut from rock and roll, to blues, to punk, to jazz, and country enthusiasts across the country. Their electrifying sound and relentless stage act even caught the eyes and ears of Rolling Stone music editor David Fricke at 2007's South by Southwest Festival, where he states they destroyed the crowd with a 'boogie- war vengeance.' They close out the year with their third release on Arclight titled 'How Do You Like The Sound Of That'.
