ARTIST PROFILE: 99 YEARS What happens to music fans when the music industry and radio stations create new formats of music? What does a Rock fan do? Or better yet, where do they go to find their favorite kind of music? Where are the artists, who create the music that millions of fans want, but doesn't meet the current 'radio guidelines?' Enter 99 YEARS. What if you combined the unbelievable energy of Queensryche with the satiric social commentary of Weird Al Yankovic? Then add two measures of killer Guitar, eyebrow raising Vocals with a flair for the theatrical.., and contemporary songwriting! This is the unique and dynamic combination that drives the Musical force known as 99 YEARS. In their self titled debut album, 99 Years focuses on introducing you to music that makes you feel good and not depressed; In essence, quality entertainment with substance and depth. Many of their songs offer multi-dimensional lyrics that present honest experiences that life can thrust upon us. For example in the track, Shoulders of Giants, the group talks about our need for respect and determination in the face of difficulties and deceit. But before you think their whole CD is going to be too serious for you, they bring in their elements of social parody. Mullet Country takes a look at the small percentage of society that refuses to adapt or change to any outside influence. 99 Years is an established Rock band that doesn't represent the generation of 'fly by night' garage Rock bands we are forced to listen to. They believe as we do, good music is a source of thought and entertainment regardless of what the current trend is. Artist Profile prepared by Tim Sweeney, TSA Music.
