ABOUT THE BRIGHT:
Described as "beautiful, stylish stuff that just might infiltrate your daydreams" by the Fort Worth Star Telegram and "that strange collective with a penchant for writing the most radio-friendly songs this side of L.A." by the Dallas Observer, DFW"s "The Bright" is always about delivering hooks, both familiar and unique with a certain unpredictability that is tasteful, emotional, memorable and relatable. Drawing from an array of British Rock eras and influences, the vocal dynamic ranges from breathy chill, to sexy modern pop, to intense, with an underlay of dreamy/thick guitar swirls and powerful rhythms.
The band has also solidified a cross-over appeal by performing alongside artists ranging from eclectic producer/recording artist Timbaland at Dallas" House of Blues and classic rocker Billy Squier at DFW"s Verizon Theatre to performing in front of hundreds of thousands viewing the main stage and television broadcast at one of the country"s largest New Year"s celebrations, Big D NYE, in Dallas, TX. Their debut LP "In Lucid Dreams" has been featured in MTV and Fox Sports original programming (including "The Hills" and "Vizio Profiles" featuring Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers) and is also available on iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster and Amazon. The band has recently released a 4 song EP entitled "Diamonds in the Snow" with a full length effort set for release mid-2011.
