With three independently released full length CD's (Breathe '96, Heart '98, Rising '03) and numerous CD demos-for-sale sold all over the country, Nude's commitment to new rock continues to impress both venue owners and critics who've 'heard it all before'. Portland's Cobalt Lounge ranks Nude, 'definitely in the top five unknown national acts we've ever seen.' And every club on the recent West Coast Tour invited Nude back for a weekend show. CD's were sold to 1 in 3 first-time listeners in cities like Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle and Taos N.M. 'Nude's live shows are the band's bread and butter, showcasing a tremendous ability to span drama and atmosphere with an added dash of emotional power... Lucey also is one of the only musicians who can create an onstage vibe different from every other local and most national bands: It's a kind of like, shut up and listen people. You can go back to your shots of Jagermeister and Buttery Nipples when we're done. And strangely enough, it works. ' Ryan Horns, Columbus Alive.
