Combining influences from four very different musicians, Sleep Satellite seeks to fill a void by creating the music they wish they heard on the radio. This band delivers music that is uncompromising and without rock star delusions. Sleep Satellite pulls together mood, texture, and ambiance to create a sound that is sonically their own that also stands on its own. Often receiving comparisons to bands from across the spectrum such as Jimmy Eat World, Incubus and Muse ... Sleep Satellite pulls their influences into the melting pot.
Matt delivers his powerful vocals and melodic guitar playing and shows his strong ties to music from out of the hard rock genre like As Tall as Lions and Coldplay. This compliments and creates a unique mix over the band's hard rock texture.
Mike pulls his guitar sounds from many of his favorite guitar innovators such as The Edge (U2), The Mars Volta and Muse to incorporate a more soundscape guitar style with ambient effects to radically alter the band's sound.
Justin bass and Jay's drumming solidify the bands rock roots and the core of their sound. Influenced heavily by the Deftones and other more hard rock bands their rhythm foundation allows the guitars and vocals to soar and experiment.
