Recently selected as Portland Oregon's 2015 Best Emerging Alt Rock Band by The Deli Magazine, LiquidLight has momentum and they aren't stopping any time soon. Their recently released first full length album, Uninitiated, showcases a band with tremendous potential as a pop-rock powerhouse. Referencing post-punk and alternative bands such as Husker Du and The Replacements, LiquidLight has been described as "melodic, thoughtful and jingle-jangly as well as shred-crazy and powerful".
In an age where popular culture pushes to "out-extreme" the latest and greatest, LiquidLight pursues balance and clarity with respect to great rock tradition. With a high standard of execution, strong melodies and elements of psychedelic and alternative influences, the music conveys a new, yet referential optimism. "LiquidLight has managed to produce an album that is not quite like anything else hitting your
eardrums lately" - Eleven Magazine
The band recently signed with famed assistant recording engineer Andy Morris (David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Bad Company). Joining his Sound Merchants management company, after a serendipitous meeting at a local LiquidLight show, Andy and his partner Tamara Martin immediately recognized the high level of musicianship and excitement in both LiquidLight's recordings and live performances. Referencing his personal musical history, Andy felt the talent and uniqueness of LiquidLight worthy of his mentorship and promotion and has found them to be an exceptional fit with their company.
Songwriters Anthony Medici and Cory West, both Berklee College of Music alums, honed their craft while performing with bands in Boston and along the East Coast. They are each highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists backed by an explosive and versatile rhythm section - drummer Zack Rodrigues and bassist Gage Dean. Medici's lead vocals lend a cryptic yet powerful element to the sound and structure of the band, echoing the melodic sensibilities of the college/alternative era.
