Lieder / Bio

Lieder, an original band based out of northern New Jersey, displays an aggressive style of power pop, steeped in the tradition of American and British Rock & Roll. Originally formed in the spring of 2007, Lieder (which means “songs” in German) was personally given its name by rock legend Pete Townshend of The Who.

Being influenced by The Who itself, lead vocalist/guitarist Mike Kosturko produces an infectious brand of memorable songs with a potency and precision that compare more than favorably to any artist on the scene today.

Joe LaPara, a committed disciple of rhythmic progression, lays down meaty yet melodic bass lines, which holds the band's sound together.

While commanding a solid tempo, drummer Ron Pasanda adds a flourish of strategically placed fills, without disrupting the songs relevance.

While enjoying the recording process, playing live is what a band thrives on. Reveling in the immediate response of an audience to their energetic style of play, Lieder pushes them to match its own level of enthusiasm.

Bringing various influences together into an original blend, Lieder's music is a celebration of a genre that has seemed to dissipate over the years. THE ART OF POWERPOP TRIO!
