One of my closest friends and adopted 'brothers', Josh, has always been in a band. Since we were in high school, I've been enduring smoky crowded bars for this loon. He's formed and performed with a variety of differrent bands in the 10+ years that we've been friends.
His current band, Letter 8, is BY FAR my favorite. Last night, they played at The Rave before the Lifehouse concert. They're so good. Laid back, college rock/pop sound. And it's all original music. I'm so proud and impressed.
They've finally finished their first CD: Character Flaw. I got a free copy last night and listened to a bit of it on the way to work this morning. Wow. SUPER disc. I hope they make it.
Check it out for yourself. You can buy their CD online at their website: www.letter8music.com.
