Indier Than Thou
What do you get when you combine a drummer who played in a Phish tribute band, a lead guitarist obsessed with heady British rock and jazz chords, a bassist who loves the grove that makes you move, and a singer with influences ranging from southern to roots to alt rock? You get the most quirky band on the planet: Tieweb Combining vast influences ranging from Herbie Hancock to The Pixies, Tieweb fuses memorable melodies with danceable grooves and soaring guitar riffs to create a unique indie-rock sound. The Virginia based band was founded in 2004 by singer/guitarist Justin Fazzari and lead guitarist Eric Bayles and solidified it's cast with the addition of rock/jazz drummer Steve Quesenbury and bassist Chris Aylward in 2005. Tieweb released it's first EP Setting the Sun in 2006. It's debut full-length album, Indier Than Thou, recorded by Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) award-winning producer Marco Delmar, was released in 2009. The combination of tightly crafted melodies and eccentric lead guitar creates an album that you can instantly sing along with after the first listen. The mix between electric rock songs and acoustic, slightly alt-country songs reveals a dynamic sound and presents a fresh experience with every listen.
