"You missed when time and life shook hands and said 'good luck!', for your sake I hope heaven and hell are really there, but i wouldn't hold my breath."
"All hail the dominant primordial beast." ~Alexander Supertramp (Christopher McCandless)
I am The Wolf
BEMUSED is a collection of four distinct musical voices that fuse together an intoxicating brand of driving, yet sublime and ambient, if not ethereal, Funky Acoustic Rock. Initially a quintet formed in the winter of 2009, BEMUSED evolved into the current quartet later on in that same year. This quartet is composed of Christian Seith on lead vocals + guitar, Colby Marks on vocals + lead guitar, Rich Kimball on bass guitar, and Nic Thornsberry on drums.
2010 was a year that BEMUSED spent honing their craft throughout the Denver Metropolitan area to increasingly avid crowds. The unique textural, melodic and complex harmonic music of BEMUSED has been showcased on stages of illustrious Denver venues like the Hi-Dive, Walnut Room, and Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for a Colorado Rapids Soccer club pre-game show. BEMUSED looks to continue their growth in 2011 and further display their intriguing signature array of musical complexion.
“DEPARTED ONES” Critical Acclaim:
-“Can we just say delicious?”
-“From complex time signatures to instruments you don’t often hear on corporate radio”
-“Seith’s gruff vocals – reminiscent of a lower, deeper Jim Morrison – …strong and engaging”
-“You’ll love this CD [‘Departed Ones’] and be asking for more delicious tracks from Bemused”
Jeanie Straub - Colorado Music Buzz Magazine
-“The band locks into a fluid groove”
Jon Solomon - Westword
-“Melodic element…similar to DeVotchKa…more of its own style”
Devin Pitts-Rogers - Clarion
-“Bemused is one of those acts that does not come around very often.”
-“A songwriter who has his shit together and several musicians who are great in there own right.”
