Analog Heart is comprised of Liz Bills on rhythm guitar, piano and lead vocals, Jesse Cohen on lead guitar and Austin Ferrante on drums. They recorded their debut EP with Scott Riebling, bass player from Letters to Cleo.
The trio names a number of musical influences that have inspired their music, including Etta James, Paramore, Kings of Leon, Silversun Pickups, The Killers, Florence and the Machine, and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, among others. They find themselves most often compared to Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Paramore and The Killers, while Liz's distinct, impassioned voice is often compared to Janis Joplin.
It is that voice, emblazoned with fresh talent, that brought a great musical accomplishment to the group. Liz made it onto the TV show American Idol in 2013, where she made it to the final 30 girls and was on TV during Hollywood week. Liz shared the stage with the legendary icons Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Randy Jackson and Nicki Manaj. Analog Heart has also shared the stage with such acts as Saving Abel, Gary Hoey, The Brew, Kellie Picklier, Danielle Bradbery and Angie Miller.
