Other recent accolades include a staggering 16 top ten Austin Music Awards honors including best album, best songwriter, best guitarist and many more. Tregan Guitars has recently released Kimberly's signature model guitar.

Years before Jason Rufuss Sewell (A.K.A., "Junior") joined as drummer of One-Eyed Doll, he was producing award-winning albums with Kimberly Freeman. When called for, Sewell performed bass, drums and any additional instruments required for the recordings.
He was listed among the top ten producers in Austin for his production and instrumentation work on albums "Break" by One-Eyed Doll and "Sleep" by Kimberly Freeman.
Though the two had recorded several albums over the years together, it was these two unique projects that bonded Sewell and Freeman prompting the producer to venture beyond the studio walls and onto the stage with Kimberly.
Since then, he has continued to win prestigious awards for production. After joining One-Eyed Doll, the SXSW Austin Music Awards has also named Jason a top ten drummer two years in a row.
As a producer, Jason Rufuss Sewell has been very successful in the commercial music world. In his studio, he has created everything from jingles to movie soundtrack music to video game themes to hundreds of full length albums, often playing all of the instruments himself. This experience has enriched him greatly as a musician, preparing him for a lifetime of music production and performance.
As drummer of One-Eyed Doll, "Junior" has a loyal cult following of his very own. He is a popular character in the massive online role playing game AdventureQuest Worlds, enslaved by Chaos Lord Kimberly Freeman in the land of BattleOn! One-Eyed Doll's growing worldwide fan base has mixed well with the young new followers of the gaming world to catapult Junior to role model status among hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.
