Beryl Court, a rocking 4-piece out of Arlington, TX have poured together a fusion of Alt/Rock/Pop/Metal...they call it Liquid Rock.
They understand defining your place in music but prefer to flow from niche to niche with a few original songs that hint at “countresque”, several wander towards pop, some delve into alternative sounds while others drive straight to in-yer-face rock. Instead they follow the sound where it leads creating memorable tunes that may drift softly or perhaps surge downstream but promises a musical adventure wherever it goes.
Tristan Bugenis and Matt Hackney formed their first band in high school which ultimately evolved into Beryl Court. They still do occasional shows as a duo. Alexander Buxton joined in 2008. Tristan handles most of the lead vocals and splits time between his well-loved Taylor guitar and the bass. Matt keeps the beat on the drums adding his beautiful harmonies to the mix. On the guitar, Alexander brings a wicked fast hand inserting a taste of fusion with metal influence to the music. They don’t have any sad personal stories or compelling drama to tell but do produce some great songs with layers of sound featuring their individual talents.
All members of the band were influenced with the love of music instilled by their families with guitars, drums, pianos and other instruments made available to eager hands since they were kids. Introduced to a wide range of sound from rock, jazz, Celtic, R&B, showtunes, mariachi and all things in-between, their own music tastes run a wide gamut. The band has been compared to Linkin Park, Offspring, Paramore and AC/DC by others.
Their musical flexibility allows the band to play an array of covers adding their own spin to numerous artists including Matchbox 20, Van Halen, Third Eye Blind, Ozzy Osbourne, Tonic, Pantera, Van Morrison, Bon Jovi, Scorpions, Kenny Chesney, Sublime, Usher, The Script, and more. This capability permits the band to play at a variety of venues large and small.
For the band, their goal remains to create music that sounds good without regard for boundaries of a particular style or genre. Jumping into the ebb and flow and riding the wave of Liquid Rock, Beryl Court crafts melodies appealing to music lovers of all styles.
