| Ledbetter Heights |
Ledbetter Heights comes from a college town, but it's far more than a college band. They're young men,but old souls. They were toddlers when "Joshua Tree" was released, but one can hear echoes of 70s funk and 60s soul threaded through a rock sound alltheir own. And best of all, they're not playing for escapism or ephemeral pleasures. They're slinging their grooves and melodies because they know moving people to jump,shout, laugh and cry is a serious and noble business,
far more important than any day job.
Based in Shippensburg, PA., the band - Tim Carr Jr. on drums, Matt Franzoni on bass, Nick Staver on lead vocals and guitar, and Brian Stoner on lead guitar - has spent the last four years playing shows and building a following throughout central Pennsylvania and western Maryland. The band self-released its sophomore album "Evolve" in February 2008 and
has already gained radio air play for several tracks from the album.
Meanwhile, they continue writing, honing their live show and getting acquainted with the road. They're easily one of the biggest draws in a region boasting a surprising number of talented bands,yet they're easy to work with, willing to offer
an opening slot, or set the stage for someone else.They play and hang with a large number of friends and fellow musicians because they love music, thrive on challenges, and live to connect with listeners.
Rock n' Roll is alive and kicking in these four guys.They invite you to turn off the television, forget
your idols, and experience some independent,organic, homegrown, live music! - (Read more)
