INNOCENT NOISE - BRIEF BIO -
"The Indie Life For Me" - There is still an aura of innocence and pride in being in charge of ones own music career. I.N. is rising above the pre-manufactured noise of pop culture through distinctive sound, and determined effort at expanding onto the international stage. Innocent Noise has been reborn since the addition of front man Craig Harrison [8-04] after being instrumental for over a year. I.N.'s "debut" self-titled EP was just the tip of the iceberg. I.N.'s latest EP, Xotica, represents an elevation in sound for Innocent Noise being blessed to now record with producer/engineer Alan Sanderson of Strate Sound Studios in San Diego, CA...the band's home town.
With a mountain of new music in the live set; and having opened for Pepper and Long Beach Dub All Stars on the funkier side, and Chaimara [OzFest band] on the harder side, Innocent Noise can rock just about any house they are privileged to play.
The sound? Driving funky rhythms, melodic structure and strong tribal beats. Combining eccentric licks, aggressive power chords and urgently poetic vocals, the band is influenced by several of the most epic artists of all time, and some obscuritites only core fans have ever heard of. The influences? Read
Are we Innocent? Is it Noise? We intend to rock the world until we get some answers!
In the meantime, YOU decide.

Listen to them. What more can I say? Innocent Noise and it’s members Craig Harrison on vocals, P Funk on guitar, Dave Howe on bass and Brent Wetli on drums are a great change of pace in this world of American Idol and pop star divas. Just one listen and you could expect to hear them on your local rock radio station...
They could easily be on tour with any of today’s rock bands. So my suggestion for this band, visit their website, listen to their music request to hear them from your local radio station.

[Also opened for Buck Cherry, and Tila Tequila]
Innocent Noise can taylor to particular crowds. With broad range, talent, and interest in music...there is some Innocent Noise for just about everyone! I.N. has so much music in the pipeline it's astonishing.
With songs like Inspired, The Fall, and many more, Innocent Noise is especially looking to pair up with interested companies in the action sports industry for further exposure to this cutting edge demographic.
