This quintet, led by Margaret Young's words of real-life's hopes and failures, covers a cross-section of influences from the 70's to the present. As heard on their 11 track CD, produced by Tadpole (3 Doors Down, Disturbed), their mix of lyrical passion and superb musicianship make for a great recipe for success.

Their debut album released in 2010, Sleep Well Sweet Vanity, can only be described as epic and is a splendid introduction to the world, says John Wiled with Rock Realm. "Sleep Well Sweet Vanity" features an intoxicating array of styles and emotions, says Tony Cannella of Femme Metal. The album unfolds like the soundtrack of a dream screaming to awake. SMWV moves seamlessly through melodic rock hooks, raw metal, and industrial soundscapes. The pounding aggression of "October" and the symphonic flair of "Lay Down" offers listeners an exciting array of material.
This ambitious unveiling will leave you glad to have experienced LRR with the strange side-effect of being satisfied and craving more at the same time.
Straight-lined hard rock band based in Chicago fronted by a female vocalist. All members of 4WITHOUT have many years of experience as musicians, playing all over Chicago and suburbans venues. The music is very energetic and powerful with nice vocal melodies. The overall sound of 4WITHOUT is very promising, it's tight and catchy!

They recorded a 5-song Demo @ Apetrax Recording Studio and played a handful of shows before Gerald's departure in September of 2010.
