Lead Singer Syndrome
Lead Singer Syndrome is about writing songs that are intertwining melodies (aka counterpoint) as opposed to just lots of
chord changes. In the Baroque style of classical music, such as Bach or Vivaldi, each instrument played a melody that complemented
the others instead of simply supported a singer or a lead instrument.
We have taken this concept and incorporated
it into different styles of music - classical, funk, latin, heavy
Although it is not a hard formula we force ourselves
to adhere to, it is a philosophy that helps us create interesting instrumental music.
Brian has always been a fast moving force, using various line-ups
and staying out in front of the public both as a solo and with a group. Colburn has also been a proponent for several different
benefits where he has offered his time and skills for those that needed them.
Sean Faust is an individual with a vision. His songwriting captures
the essence of a fresh kind of approach that reels in it's listeners like a fish unknowingly biting it's bait. He brilliantly
crafts songs that can be acoustic rock, new-age and all around progressive at the same time. Sean is known for his live shows,
which cannot be considered simple entertainment, but an overall fantastic experience. He is inspired by, "Life, sunsets, big
skies and large landscapes," and attributes his musical influences to bands like Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Phish, The Beatles,
Live, Rush, Grateful Dead, Yes and many more.
