Song Premiere: Uniform Standard’s ‘Filthy Mouth’

Twelve years ago, Augusta, Ga.-born-and-raised Dana Andrews got her shot at the big time: She auditioned for CBS’ “Rockstar: Supernova” and became one of 15 finalists competing to be the lead vocalist for a new supergroup featuring Gilby Clarke, Jason Newsted and Tommy Lee.

She lasted six weeks on the show and got to perform “Born to Be Wild,” Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life,” Melissa Etheridge’s “I’m the Only One,” Nirvana’s “About a Girl” and The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” – all on a national stage.

Can’t beat that.

After being eliminated, Andrews reunited with her band, Everything After, in South Carolina. But by 2009, she was ready to move on: She relocated to Los Angeles, where she connected with drummer T-Roy, guitarist Mr. Trent and former Miggs bassist Mark “Pork Chop” Baker to form Uniform Standard.

Uniform Standard’s brand of blues-infused rock has gone over well in Southern California; they have sold out shows at The Viper Room, House of Blues, Bardot, The Globe, Molly Malone’s and The Silverlake Lounge.

Now their newest single, “Filthy Mouth” (Big Management), is making its premiere on Pauseandplay.com. It’s just the kind of gritty rock that served Andrews’ well on “Rockstar: Supernova.”

What did she learn from that truly Hollywood experience?

It “taught me to stop thinking about what I felt everyone ELSE wanted to see and hear, and instead find a way to be more authentic. Then … you rock out from THAT place,” she says.

Dana Andrews and Uniform Standard are ready to rock on.

(BTW: Lukas Rossi was the 2006 “Rockstar: Supernova” winner; they recorded one album together, “Supernova,” released in November 2006.)
