Biography: Abbe May is a rock singer-songwriter from Perth, Australia. Known for her an extraordinary voice - a stirring howl borne on the melancholic balladry of a grieving heart. As confrontational as it is vulnerable, her characteristically anguished howl and moan conceals an undercurrent of hot-blooded intensity within the poetry and grunge-fuelled candour of her music and band The Rockin' Pneumonia (consisting of: Abbe May (Vocals, Guitar, Ukelele), K.T Rumble (Lead Guitar), Rodeo Stone (Bass), Pickett (Drums, Vocals)).

Her debut album "Howl and Moan" was recorded over the summer of 2007 and mixed in the autumn of 2008. The album covers the themes of immense love and loss, and unleashed passion.

Supporting The Drones, CW Stoneking, Tim Rogers,The Waifs, Billy Bragg, The Cops, and Mia Dyson among others, the band's festival record includes the West Coast Blues and Roots Festival, WAMi Festival, Wave Rock Weekender, In the Pines and Southbound.
