L.A. River / Bio

L.A. River came together in 2009 when Marcus Pierce met Kevin Odom through a Craigslist ad. The two life-long musicians immediately realized that their songs shared a common thread - they were stories of life, love, misfortune, and redemption. Unfortunately life, as it does so many times, interjected itself and interfered with their desire to share their extensive catalog of music with everyone. Although well received everywhere they played, the project was placed on indefinite hold, being revived once or twice when the weather was nice.

Then life took another turn, and Marcus found himself working hours more conducive to playing music. December 2012 found him playing before a handful of fellow employees. The audience was small, but the rewards were enormous. Introductions were made, information was exchanged, and inspiration was born. After following up on several leads, Marcus called Kevin and the two agreed it was time for another go at it. They assembled an accomplished assortment of musicians, with James Avgeris on guitar, Nick Krall on mandolin, Adam Lieberthal on keyboards, Dr. Chas on percussion, and went to work. It took only one rehearsal to realize they had something special. After years of struggling to get their songs heard, they were finally convinced it was going to happen. Plans came together to record a CD and start putting a performance together. All of a sudden, the phone began to ring.

And this is where our story begins...
