“Another Poway band is set to follow in the footsteps of other successful local bands like Blink-182 with the release of its first album.”
“On Jan. 11, the Poway-based band Sleepless Pacific will release its debut album and celebrate with a free concert at Point Loma Nazarene University. Band members said the album, which is titled Breaking Ground, is symbolic of how far they’ve come since first forming and of where they hope to go from here.”
“The band has been steadily building a loyal fan base in Southern California, and are prepared to break into the industry with the upcoming release.”
"...the band won PLNU’s battle of the bands on October 25 hosted by the Invisible Children club..."
"The day after Christmas 2011, they started recording their debut album: “Breaking Ground”. The name comes from a lyric in their song “Are You Listening?” and it seems to fit the theme behind the album perfectly."
"...wrapping up their debut album, Breaking Ground..."
“Our goal is to make music that uplifts, and inspires people to see the world through new eyes. We love making music and we will continue to do so for as long as we can. We are fortunate that we’re all friends off-stage and often hang out together, even when we’re not working.”
“...they're most often compared to Switchfoot and U2. Those are probably the two main influences. [They] definitely appeal to a wide range of people ... and the band's focus ---- besides making music and having fun ---- is that they want to promote a message that everybody's important, and you can make a difference. ”
