From the outskirts of Olympia, Washington comes LISTEN LOUDER — a band influenced by a mixture of rock genres from the 50’s to the present day. Groups such as Green Day, Offspring, The Beatles, Van Morrison, Led Zepplin, Rush and AC/DC. This power trio projects a high, positive energy which immediately captivated the people of the local music scene in 2006 with its upbeat progressions full of hooks and catchy lyrical phrasing, slick guitar leads and ambient portions of harmony.
After almost four years of local promotion, it became aware, to not only the band but to listening parties from all over the Pacific Northwest, that LISTEN LOUDER had massive potential for success if introduced to a broader audience. In 2008, the band took 3rd place in a local Battle Of The Bands competition of 40+ bands at Charlie’s in Down Town Olympia. They performed at Seattle’s Hemp Fest on the McWilliams Stage and The Apple Cup Tailgate Party on the Car Toys Semi Truck Stage. In the summer of 2009, the band made an investment of $2,000 to be put on the bill of a 10 day West Coast tour. Kicking off the tour in Aberdeen, Wash., the band performed in a string of cities including Seattle, Portland, Reno, Vegas, Lake Havasu, San Diego, Eugene and Tacoma. Just after their return to Olympia, LISTEN LOUDER was asked to headline for a weekend event in Montana.
In today’s world, happiness can be hard to maintain due to poverty, war, drugs, physical/mental abuse and the lack of confidence. Through a highly receptive energy, LISTEN LOUDER brings listeners an escape from life’s everyday struggles and offers a positive outlet for all ages to plug into.
