"Best Bet"

With a name like FOIL Method (which refers to the algebraic method for multiplying two binomials), you could mistake the local instrumental band for one of those ’90s-era math rock outfits. But this band reaches for something more expansive and contemporary, specializing in progressive rock leavened with pop melodicism and elements of electronic music. FOIL Method gives its songs the room to stretch into extended grooves that evolve into full-bore instrumental rave-ups, demonstrating an appreciation for sweeping melodic shifts and insistent, throbbing rhythms missed by many contemporary acts that attempt to update prog-rock. - Paul Davis - Santa Cruz Weekly


Lucid Dream - Colin Gailey



Santa Cruz-based instrumental rock group FOIL Method is a force to be reckoned with. Featuring the guitar virtuosics of rising star Colin Gailey, this is a sonic journey you won't want to miss. Jaw-dropping pyrotechnics, resonating grooves, and amazing songwriting are the hallmarks of this power trio.

The rhythm section features the multi-talented Santa Cruz native Carlos Rodriguez on bass and keyboards, and Keith Milton Stocker manning the drum set.

With an energetic live presence, a unique blend of styles, and pristine musicianship, FOIL Method is a hot band you won't want to miss.
