I Lost My Heart in the Battle
Winner of Boston Band Crush's Golden Unicorn for "Best Thing to Look Forward to in 2010" Contagious melodies and emotional lyrics lead the charge for Boston's newest pop-rock outfit, Naked On Roller Skates. Members of the Counterfolk Collective and The Motion Sick pave the way for this fun and fashionable pop outfit. Lead singer Leesa Coyne's unmistakable voice rings out with power and soul, and her beautiful melodies, coupled with her proud and angst filled lyrics, linger in your brain for days on end. This, by all means, is a good thing...Naked On Roller Skates is comprised of Leesa Coyne (vocals, guitar), Kelly Davidson (bass), Travis Richter (guitar) and Randall Creasi (drums). Leesa has played for years in the local folk scene, most notably with the Counterfolk Collective. Former members of the Counterfolk Collective have gone on to create such bands as The Motion Sick, Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darling and Boston favorite, Brian McPherson. Local photographer extraordinaire Kelly Davidson is handling bass duties, a subtle switch from her days playing guitar for the Liz Borden Band. Travis Richter, drummer for The Motion Sick, is pulling a Grohl and showcasing his talents as lead guitarist. Randall Creasi brings his high energy drumming style to the fray, and has been most recently performing with Air Traffic Controller. With infectious songs like "Sugar" (mixed by Anthony J. Resta) and "Badside" included on the upcoming EP, I Lost My Heart in the Battle (recorded and co-produced by Taylor Barefoot), the band plans to showcase their beautiful pop melodies on the stages of Boston's premier venues. Their live performances are guaranteed to be intense and full of sweaty, toe-tapping fun!
