The Space Sharks / Bio

The Space Sharks – Driving Rock and Roll!

For big guitars, hard-hitting drums and a dose of psychedelia, crank up The Space Sharks! From the fast and heavy "Run For Cover," to the acoustic/electric "Perfect," recording the debut CD has been a thrill for the band.

“I'm really glad people are digging the music!” says guitarist/lead vocalist Lonnie Richard. "It might be because of the way we recorded the songs--going for takes that kind of hit you in the gut, rather than thinking about things in a way like ‘Okay, here comes this part, and I'm going to do this thing I've worked out for hours until all the spontaneity and life have been sucked out of it.’" He laughs. "Instead, we went 'Yeah, this feels right!' when we had a take we all liked, which most often was the first or second take. Anything after that, we were kind of repeating ourselves"

“Yeah, it's been great! We are forever grateful to the people who like the songs." says drummer/backing vocalist Mike Martino. "We definitely tried to keep that live vibe and energy, even on a slower song like ‘Fools,’ which actually might be my favorite.”

Together with bassist Bob Bergeron, the power trio based in Baltimore Maryland USA kicks into high gear. Lon adds "Bob's a melodic madman and probably the loudest bass-player I’ve ever heard! The three of us have known each other since high school. We decided to form The Space Sharks in 2009 and never looked back!”

Mastered by Jonathan Wyner, "The Space Sharks" sound is crisp and big. Slap on a pair of headphones for trippy panning effects and swirling guitars. It's The Space Sharks at their best. Yeah, baby!*************************************************************
