Fault By Design


Our greatest strengths are our live performance, song writing, and originality. The most important factor for us is that we get put in front of people, and the music will latch onto listeners naturally. The level of energy that we bring to the stage sets us apart from other groups. We embrace that.


Our musical influences range all the way from Led Zeppelin, to Dave Matthews Band, to In Flames. We started our band 2 years ago, and the range of personalities in our group makes us unique. We feel that a new sound is what listeners are looking for, and we've got just that. We believe in writing songs from the heart, and the release of emotion in our music can really send chills down your spine; that's what makes us truely different from most bands. We sing, drum, and play with extreme emotion and energy, and that's what makes music special.


We are currently working on our first studio album to be released in March of 2010. We have videos on youtube as well for listeners, a couple of which are listed below.
This is a video of the first song we wrote called "Rain," which debuted in front of about 400 people: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_byU7eXi0jA
And this video was recorded at the Guitar Center King of the Blues contest. This is our lead guitar player, Robert, who took runner up in the semi-finals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_abu5Ac-lo&feature=channel
