Relentless. It’s the word that best describes Symmetry, a progressive pop/rock band based out of Los Angeles. Striving to touch one’s heart and soul through their music, this innovative band consists of Michael Campbell (vocals), Jared Hara (guitar), Will Weiner (bass) and Max D’Anda (drums). These four accomplished and determined musicians fatefully met each other in California and aim to inspire hope through their powerful music.
Jared Hara, guitarist for Symmetry, exemplifies the value of hope. Jared grew up in Central Florida always on the lakes tubing, wake boarding and skiing. Later taking his love of sports indoors to play ice hockey. When he was twelve, Jared lost his eyesight and picked up his first guitar, which became a newfound passion. “Sometimes in darkness, we find ourselves,” says Jared. Music provided him the hope and strength to continue on. Now a guitar virtuoso, composer and producer, Jared is living proof that tragedy can reveal hidden potential.
Mike was born in Washington State where he grew up in a town called Gig
Harbor. He discovered his passion for music/performing when he attended his
first ever rock concert while attending high school and immediately began
playing locally in several bands. Mike later moved to Los Angeles, California
where he graduated from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood studying audio
engineering. While attending MI he met Jared (guitar) who was in search of a
vocalist for his current band. Mike agreed and was excited about the music they
were creating. It wasn’t long until the two of them discovered Will (bass) and
Max (drums) where they decided to start something new and fresh, Symmetry.
Will, the youngest in the band is from Northern California. He will share more about himself soon.
Max will, however always be a mystery.
Symmetry formed in early 2013 with what they refer to as “the dream team.” Their similar mindsets quickly led to writing and recording their debut full-length album, Frozen in Time, with producer James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, Paramore, Underoath).
Frozen in Time was praised overseas by the U.K. music and culture website, Louder Than War, who called lead single “Frozen In Time” “fresh, powerful and absolutely radio-ready.” Their song “When Will It End” won “Best Rock Song” at the Hollywood Music and Media Awards (HMMA’s), and Symmetry’s playful rock cover of Katy Perry’s Roar quickly gained steam with fans on YouTube.
Symmetry’s album, along with their infectious chemistry, caught the attention of many during the winter of 2014. While touring the U.K. with Room 94 on the Live Nation No Strings Attached tour, Symmetry gained worldwide fans (who quickly hopped on Twitter to create an international fan feed). The band’s performance at NACA’s West Coast Convention (National Association of Campus Activities) kicked off a domestic tour. Symmetry is currently wrapping up 2014 with a new Album, also produced by James Paul Wisner called “The Cure”. “The Cure” says Rythm and Booze “blends a big bold combination of rock and alternative pop, added some fizz, a little bit of bounce and then shake until frothing.”
In Feb/March 2015 Symmetry headed back to the U.K.,Ireland and Scotland with Room 94 as part of the Dirty Dancing Tour. March/April 2015 Symmetry joins McBusted for the Most Excellent Adventure Tour. In April Symmetry will headline there own “Up Close and Personal Tour” in the UK . May will bring them back out on the road with UK’s very own James Arthur.
