The Liza Colby Sound
The Liza Colby Sound
"Part shaman, part seductress, Liza Colby was born to earn the Queen Of Rock N’ Roll mantle. Her music is for sinful Saturday nights, and redemptive Sunday mornings. It’s heartbreak music; it’s music of sexual liberation; it’s music for when it matters most. It’s The Liza Colby Sound. It’s the music we need in these times.

Imagine Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden meets James Brown at the Apollo. Picture Tina Turner prowling the stage like Iggy Pop with vocals that conjure Aretha Franklin and Humble Pie’s Steve Marriott. Hyperbolic? Nah, come to a show, and look out for The Liza Colby Sound’s upcoming EP, DRAW.

“When I sing, I want it to be badass, feminine, empowering, and ooze sexuality,” the New York City-based artist says. “I want to kick mother#$&ers in the face with rock n’ roll.”

The Liza Colby Sound is known for an aesthetic that harnesses the grit of garage rock, the anthemic power of classic arena rock, the sweat-soaked salvation of a soul revue, and the sneering defiance of punk rock. Liza’s vocals are boldly vulnerable, shaking the rafters and rattling your soul. LCS sound has toured throughout the East Coast, performing in venues such as Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, PNC Bank Arts Center, The Wellmont Theater, and Jones Beach. LCS has also performed to a packed house at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles. To date, the rock n’ roll quartet has issued two EPs, previous releases include the well-received High Yellow (2011) and Live(2013).

The Liza Colby Sound includes a trio of musicians who have played for almost two decades. These formidable instrumentalists boast impressive resumes that include working with Ozzy Osbourne, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, Raging Slab, Suzanne Vega, Garland Jeffreys, Lenny Kaye, Jim Carroll Band, the Del Fuegos (featuring Dan Zanes), The Paley Brothers, Denis Leary, and Joey Ramone, among other well-known names. These all-stars are also known for scoring music for film and TV, most recently they’ve contributed to the Denis Leary show Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

The core of The Liza Colby Sound is Adam Roth guitar, Alec Morton bass, and C.P. Roth drums. December 2015, Adam passed away after a brave battle with cancer. LCS has remerged with fiery psychedelic guitarist Tom McCaffrey (Gloria Gaynor and Liberty DeVitto) as a full-fledged member.

Outside of The Liza Colby Sound, Liza has lent silk and sandpaper vocal stylings to Enrique Iglesias, Denis Leary John Legend, The Gold Setting, Johnny Burgos, The Sweet Things, Chris Rock's movie Top 5 (which featured her song “It Ain’t Easy”), Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll (she’s the singing voice of Elaine Hendrix). In addition, Liza’s voice has appeared on ESPN, VH1, NASCAR, and Sesame Street.

DRAW channels the power of LCS live. The 4-song EP crackles with fiery musicality, muscular grooves, and moments of reflective soul-ballad beauty. The leadoff single, “My World,” explodes open with an iconic, instantly recognizable guitar figure. This future smash is a gritty and seductive pop-rock number that explores the expanse of female sexuality from dominant to submissive with relentless moxie. On the track, guitarist Adam Roth turns in solos that evoke honey dripping down on naked bodies. The simmering soul waltz “I Love You” conjures the longing of being desperately in love with someone who is going to leave and the cocksure “Cryin”.

The EP is a tribute to the tenacity of The Liza Colby Sound, and it also represents a brave new future. “The title ‘DRAW’ means it’s time to pull the trigger.” Liza says with graceful defiance. “We will Mach Schau.”

Raw blues and rock band from Brooklyn, NY
New Rock City
New Rock City
New Rock City is a NY based rock band completely inspired by the great CBGB's era and influenced by The Ramones, Blondie, The Clash, Pretenders, Talking Heads and Bowie. It all started when Rossano and Kick met IN NY taking the same cab after a concert at Jones Beach. Both soon started collaborating on a compilation of songs that would put together their first record 'New Rock City'. Narrated from their most creative and visionary point of view, the two of them travel along a far away land in search of their dreams bringing with them only their deepest and dearest wishes to try to make them true. During that experience they encounter their favorite artists turned into characters that will help them get to New Rock City, ""the place where you get to when you follow your heart"". That's what this album stands for, freedom, rebellion, courage and love. This collection of songs, converted to a series of stories, slam from rock n roll to blues to punk. They masterfully tackle their sound with some other styles such as twist in the love song ""Oh Baby, Baby"", doo wop in ""Play"", surf rock riffs in ""Come Join My Way"" being ""Saving Rock n Roll"" the last stop, the anthem of this experience completely inspired by the great CBGB's band The Ramones.

Later on, they enlisted friends Jem Warren as their bass player and Tim Kuhl as the drummer of the band. They have blues roots, punk roots, they have rock and roll roots, they play loud… Their timeless music is euphoric, their catchy lyrics will play on repeat in your head and the electric, crispy and raw guitars combined with the sensual and powerful vocals will grab you at your emotions and the infectious beat will make you sway your hips back and forth.

this first work just scratches the surface of the band's capabilities. Their concept, unique stage image and aesthetic, the electric and raw guitar riffs, the powerful vocals and that fresh and fun sound is making this band more and more popular. The band is currently working on their second album which will be out in 2017.
Songs from The Warhol era plus Keith Richards birthday tribute.
