4 Letter Words

4 Letter Words


Music You Can Still Give a $#@% About! Take the best of the true rock bands of days gone by when lyrics told a story and music set a mood, combined with today's greatest sounds, throw in un-4-gettable originals and you have the music of 4 Letter Words. It's John Mayer Meets 3 Dog Night Everynight!


From Chicago, Illinois comes 4 Letter Words. Finally, a group whose lyrical and musical content is actually positive and upbeat, charged with power and excellent musician skills throughout.

The only "warning advisory label" to be affixed onto this powerful group is that you'll find each of their songs infectious, with tunes that stick in your head, offering the kind of quality songwriting that seems to be expressing a welcome new trend these days - the return of artists who know how to write a good song.

Lead Singer Greg Anthony, Keyboard Player Rich Poston, Bassist Dave Gilmartin, Lead Guitar Player Tony Strand, and Drummer Bill Hartwig have brought music back to where it should have always been.

The wide-ranging musical influences of each musician shows a skill and a mature writing style that will make you "swear" you've heard these tunes on commercial radio. With this level of songwriting and performing, it would be about time.

With a genre all its own, these 5 men have combined the very best of yesterday's classic rock style with deep roots in music made by legendary groups like Three Dog Night, Chicago, and The J. Giles Band, to mainstays of today's music like John Mayer, Los Lonely Boys, and Sister Hazel. Toss in their very own un-4-gettable original songs and you have one very unique and amazing musical experience. This is one you don't want to miss!

Music you can still give a $@#% about. What a great concept. Go ahead. It's OK. Say these 4 Letter Words aloud.
