In a global music scene where most bands find themselves following a trend to get noticed, few bands keep with their roots and stay true to the sound that defined the members as musicians. This four piece rock outfit hailing out of Encinitas, California, brings a blend of groove-based hard rock and melodic, soulful vocals that stand out in a scene where gutteral screaming reigns king. Armed with high energy, Marshall charged guitar riffs mixed with their own brand of emotional songwriting, Her Bed of Thorns has the ability to switch from hard-hitting rockers to audience-grabbing ballads setting this band apart from other current and past artists.

Founded in 2007 by vocalist/guitarist Chris Irick and guitarist Tim Nicholson, Her Bed of Thorns went through an evolutionary process that began to define their signature West Coast hard rock sound. Bassist Raj Vyas and drummer Will Thompson finalized the lineup and took the sound from the harder edged metal machine to the more groove based, traditional hard rock sound they are embracing today.

Her Bed of Thorns' influences are gathered from a combination of traditional blues and heavier classic rocks bands like Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Cream filtered and refined through the decades to evolve into a more 90’s-grunge/groove rock feel now compared to bands such as Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and Guns N' Roses.. bands that put alternative hard rock on the map.

With their fast rise within the San Diego music scene and radio airplay on some of San Diego’s biggest rock stations. Her Bed of Thorns is well on its way to becoming a force to be reckoned with and is enjoying the fruits of success in seeing their work being embraced by an ever growing audience of listeners.
