Lite Brite / Bio

Eddie Underwood (Vocals/Guitar), Joe Finocchio (Vocals, Bass), and Matt Underwood (Vocals, Drums) have a rich musical history having learned to play together during high school. They developed strong songwriting skills due to their constant focus on melody, and desire to live up to their influences, Nirvana, Zeppelin, and The Stones. After they recorded a demo of their song "Big City", now featured on their self-titled album, a fan decided to submit it to the Konami "Rock the Revolution" contest. This demo ended up winning the grand prize which was to have the song featured in the Rock Revolution video game as a playable title and a spread in Rolling Stone magazine. Due to an overlooked technicality on the part of the contest runners, the group would ultimately not be able to accept the prize and Konami was forced to award it to the runner up. While disappointing, this showed the group that they had potential and convinced them to form Lite Brite.

Lite Brite’s music has been described by fans as "aggressive, intense, melodic heavy rock." During live performances singer Eddie Underwood leaps around on stage belting out lyrics at the top of his lungs while his feedback soaked explosive fuzz-rocket ship guitar tone screams and pounds out mesmerizing "Zeppelin on steroids" style riffs. Matt Underwood's bombastic arena-rock drumming is a force to be recognized as he punishes his oversized Ludwig drums like Mike Tyson beating up a chihuahua. Joe Finocchio's John Paul Jones-esque bass playing can range from raunchy as all hell, to beautifully melodic. As a whole the group puts out a wall of sound so big for three guys that it sounds more like four or five.
