Biography

Drawing deep from your very well of Southern rock and roll and hard rock and roll generally, Dixie Witch is usually, fittingly, from Denton, Texas. Trinidad Leal (drums and vocals), Clayton Mills (acoustic guitar), and Curt Christensen (bass) have already been playing collectively since 1999. The trio’s 1st record, In to the Sunlight, was made by the music group for Texas-based Brainticket Information and released in the summertime of 2001. After considerable touring, including a stint assisting fellow weighty rockers Alabama Thunder Pussy, Dixie Witch authorized with Detroit’s Little Stone Records because of its 2003 follow-up, One Parrot, Two Stones. Another album, Smoke cigarettes & Mirrors, adopted in 2006, and, after touring through America (including multiple looks in the SXSW music meeting and Emissions from your Monolith event) and going to Europe for the very first time, Dixie Witch recruited fresh guitarist Joshua “JT” Todd Smith in ’09 2009. Now located in Austin, Tx, the music group issued its 4th album, Allow it Move, through Small Rock in the summertime of 2011.

#Quote
1 Playing "Lisa" in Fire with Fire (1986) is a perfect example of how I am, intense, impulsive, full of love and ready to risk it all if I have to. Playing her was incredibly easy, as everything was just so natural.
2 I laugh when I hear someone talking about an actress "making such good choices." Yeah, well, she was probably broke! Or she's being supported and doesn't have to worry about it. And I hope that people keep that in mind when an actor suddenly does a movie for the Sci Fi Channel that is maybe not "important." We've got to make a living. People are going to do the "pay the rent" movie once in a while. The important movies don't pay well. They're for scale, or even worse, something they invented called "independent scale," in which case it's like it's costing me money to make the movie. You're getting $500 per week, before taxes and American Express is calling. So it is our job. It's how we make our living, and you don't always have the luxury of making a movie like Sideways (2004). I even got paid well to do that! Especially for me, at the time. [interviewed by Russ Fischer, CHUD.com, February 2007]
3 When you say no a lot as an actor, you're going to go broke, and that's been the hardest thing to go through in the last 10 years. Being a single mother and having financial problems is a nightmare.
