Exploring a new path in rock music, CO2 blends guitars and vocals along with a deep rhythm section foundation in an intriguing way.


With over a million listeners a month and a #1 Song (MIND) on, and weekly rotation on Clear Channel's very own WMRQ Radio 104.1's Spinning Unrest, PLUS winning top honors at the 2003 CT Rock Awards (sponsored by The Hartford Advocate and Radio 104 WMRQ), CO2 has quickly made a name for itself in New England's Music scene.

CO2, A quartet from Hartford, CT delivers a powerful punch of music seldom seen.
Blending influences ranging from local bands such as Godsmack, Staind to Linkin Park and Fuel, CO2`s music roots straight from the heart of emotional upbringings, to positive messages for people to relate to. Lee Layne, lead vocalist and guitarist takes you on an endeverous ride right to your emotions.

With diverse backgrounds in music, each member of the band contributes uniquely to the foundation
Chris Lopresti, Guitars and backing vocals
Steve Traks, on the Bass and modulations
And the main back bone of the band Tony Colapietro on percussions.
Make no mistake this is the band to watch!
