Formed in mid-2014 Almost Awake came together when virtuoso guitarist Grady Jones and stellar drummer Gabe Conover teamed up with longtime friend and gifted 16 year old vocalist, Vick Liano. Addison Egelhoff came aboard on rhythm guitar bringing amazing stage presence, and finally Tommy Cochran brought his punk influence and attitude on bass, creating a unique combination of styles and songwriting and the phenomenon which is Almost Awake.
After the well-received release of their first EP ‘The Explorer’, the band has since produced several hit videos, including a popular rendition of 5 Seconds of Summer’s ‘Long Way Home’. They have just released their new single ‘What did I do’ available on ITunes in September and are currently working on a highly anticipated story video for their song ‘The Intruder’, set to release Halloween of 2015.
The band, which has garnered a huge following in a very short time and rave reviews from critics, was chosen from thousands of bands to represent the House of Blues Music Forward foundation after only a few months as a band and has since been selected for radio play by A.V.A. Live Radio, KGUP FM Emerge Radio, Extreme Radio X107.5, Mix 94.1, EGH Radio in the UK, Women of Substance radio, Music Inferno Radio, and many others.
Almost Awake has performed throughout the west coast with The Extreme Tour, played at the Mesa Music Festival, and opened for such acts as Escape the Fate, A lot like Birds Handguns, Roam, Hit the Lights and many more.
