Life In Electric
Electricity is always changing...sometimes it evolves through static to a clearer picture... Here we are...Another year living the digital age...What does it all mean? Are we really more connected to people who mean the most? Or are we lost in a electric wave thats flat...no real pulse or fire to be unique...just another downloadable file to loose...where is the flame that enlightens emotion??? Can we all take a second and seperate fiction from life...Life In The Electric?
Flip the switch to Denver Colorado.
4 people connected. Energy creating color...Ryan is not sure he is here yet..Zack? he's always been... Ross may have left the real world already... too many electrical waves to the head. While Ace... well he's the new guy back in an old town. Entertain our sound waves for you own musical pleasures...if you so choose to, you can find us, we are watching...are you?
"Life In Electric is dead set on it, they're not gonna stop until they make it. They write and produce stuff amazingly well on their own. But…even though they're more than adequate producers themselves, they'll still go and find somebody to produce it even better, which is an amazing example. They want it to be competitive with every possible thing you can throw at it."
-Nerf - Music Director 93.3FM KTCL
"When this band turned on the rock-and-roll switch, they did the hard rock thing as good as bigtime bands..."
- Denver Westword
"..some of the biggest names in the local music scene are calling the work from this Denver-based foursome the best of the year."
"..there are some things that just fit nicely, and Life in Electric, having a strong impact on the future of the music industry, is one of them."
- Colorado Music Buzz Magazine
Disgrace The Traitor
Disgrace The Traitor is the new music project of former Take To The Oars guitarist Mike Trujillo. Listen to the debut single "Ugly Side" and Like this page to stay updated on shows, and all things Disgrace The Traitor.
Very few rock bands are capable of wowing people right out of the gate. It usually starts with a half recorded demo here, another half recorded demo there, empty bars, empty promises and then you finally get to the good stuff.
In February 2011, four young men who were tired of such a pattern gathered in an empty church to discuss their dreams, aspirations and what they were going to do about it. The idea was to create the music they've always wanted, spend all the money they had and make the best music they've ever been apart of.
The group enlisted producer Michael Rossback to help them craft the sounds that they were striving for and to help the songs come to life. "The whole thing was a big experiment. None of us had worked with a producer before and the biggest thing was, the band had yet to even play music together in a room." says Aaron Wagner, the groups frontman, "when we got to Rossback we had only laid ideas down piece by piece in a computer, never anything more. Rossback would then make us play everything as a live band when we arrived at his house and that's when things came to life. There was a chemistry and sense of trust between us all."
August rolled around and after months of working, Medic had finished their first EP. Five songs that had stolen the very breath away from all who would hear and with a developed sound that felt like they had been around for 10 years, the band started to play around the Denver area with the intent to stun the audience. They are succeeding. Bassist Drew Barnard explains: "We went in to this just wanting to make music with hope. Music that made people feel like they were understood and the shows feel like that; like we are reaching an understanding between us and the audience that hope is alive and well."
"In the midst of the trials that we go through these days, I think we are just tired of the same old. Anyone can make art these days. It's so accessible to make and promote and yet most of it is so negative. It was wearing on us. Medic is about something new, we are about creating a community of thinkers, dreamers and believers that aim for something positive. This world will continue to fall apart if we keep talking about how it's falling apart. But what if we dare to be the people to figure out ways to put things back together? That's our platform. That maybe our music can be apart of someones healing process and spread from there." says Aaron.
So maybe it is time for something new. New songs to sing, new dreams to dream. Maybe Medic is formed out of four guys who might be what we call idealists. But maybe it's time for us to leave the cynicism behind and begin to embrace hope.
Maybe it's time for a new beginning. Let us welcome, Medic.
