Rose Colored Glasses
Memorable pop/rock tunes, soulful vocals, fresh melodies, catchy hooks, sentimental and thought provoking lyrics, wailing guitars, screaming hammond organ, sultry piano and pounding drums are what you can expect to hear from The Livesays. The vocalist/guitarist and the band's namesake, critically acclaimed songwriter Billy Livesay, has toured with E Streeter Clarence Clemons' band 'Temple of Soul,' releasing 2 CDs 'Live In Asbury Park' Volumes 1 & 2, the second of which features Bruce Springsteen. Billy has shared the stage with so many national artists, his resume reads like a who's who of Billboard chart-topping artists. Drummer Eddie Zyne has toured and recorded with Hall and Oates, Desmond Child and Rouge, the Monkees, Rick Derringer and Foghat. Victor 'Cuqui' Berrios, who grew up in the Big Apple, brings a touch of the city to The Livesays with his Hammond B3 and impassioned vocals. Tim Murphy brings his ear for harmony and his unique Elton John style piano. Bassist Jorge Laplume, from Havana, Cuba, with his latin roots coupled with a steady diet of the rock groups such as The Who and Free, brings a bass sound that is both funky and thunderous. The combination of the versatility of backgrounds and personalities of these veteran players is what makes their sound so unique. What The Livesays have created is an album that is both memorable and moving with stories ranging from adolescence to adulthood that will touch each listener's heart. Give the new album 'Rose Colored Glasses' your full attention; you will undoubtedly relate so closely with a song or two, you just may feel as though it was written specifically for you. .
