Born to Oblivion
Rock: Alternative Modern....Power guitars, power vocals, strong lyrics; songs from sweet to heavy. If you like REAL vocals and love lead guitar, look no further than this exceptional, power-packed sound! Born to Oblivion is the brain child of Terry Lawrence: singer, songwriter, keyboards, sax, flute and several other instruments. He has played all over the USA with various groups prior to focusing on the creation and development of his own unique modern rock sound. Born near Detroit, Michigan, he grew up listening to such rock icons as Led Zeppelin, Alice n Chains, and Stone Temple Pilots. His style is unique, incorporating threads of a classic rock sound into a tapestry of modern rock music, studded with the occasional sweet and soulful ballad. In 2005, Terry teamed up with his long-time friend and lead guitarist, Jerry Von Friend, to bring his musical ideas to fruition in this rich and powerful compilation. Terry's vast and diverse experience is the foundation on which he has has begun to build his own musical legacy. He has written the strong and provocative lyrics and distinctive melodies of the ten songs that comprise this exciting CD. Jerry Von Friend is a musical force in his own right and has played with various rock groups including his own band, 'Gray By Mourning'. He also gained acclaim with his distinctive style as guitarist with the Monsters of the Morning of Real Radio. On this CD, Jerry added his technical expertise on guitar, bass and drums to produce and to bring Terry's creative vision to reality. From this collaboration has emerged a unique, provocative, sometimes intense--sometimes soothing but always exceptional and stimulating, power-packed modern rock sound!!!
