"Her Bed of Thorns Interview"

San Diego ain't exactly a rock n roll domicile but it's home to the band HER BED OF THORNS. Thanks to their punchy , guitar driven rock sound and their captivating live shows, they have earned a sizable following even beyond the confines of both San Diego and Los Angeles counties. Their full length album ALIVE is a testament - not only to the songwriting partnership of frontman CHRIS IRICK and guitarist TIM MICHOLSON - but to the band's commitment to unadulterated rock n roll at a time when rock n roll ain't getting the support and the play that it deserves. "We love the overdriven crunchy guitar stuff, but as with my heroes Guns N' Roses and Led Zeppelin, that's balanced by our passion for strong ballads." says CHRIS IRICK "No matter how powerful the guitars are, everyone loves great songs with good hooks."

"Her Bed of Thorns, Alive"

Camaraderie, complement and a steady flux of hard-hitting rockers and melodic ballads is the stuff that makes up Her Bed of Thorns. The guitar interplay of Chris Irick’s melodic rhythm offerings versus the technical and intricate finger work supplied by Tim Nicholson is the shiniest facet of their debut, Alive. The 10-tracks wax and wane between agro chug guitar and emotive, demure chord progressions bringing versatility to the tracks and the album ethos. - Chris West, skopemag.com

"Her Bed of Thorns "Alive" Music Review"

"I review books and music, I love what I do! It kicks ass for many reasons but you know what I love about reviewing the most? That pivotal moment when you realize that you just stumbled on your next favorite band that is going to be a permanent part of your MP3 rotation. Well…Her Bed of Thorns debut CD Alive is one of those gems. They’ve made my MP3 player rotation and let me tell you, that is some heavy duty competition for space on my MP3 player. Honestly, there isn’t a single song I didn’t like…something that I can’t even say about many of my top favorite “heavy hitters.”

"......they leave you ready for the hit to national tour circuit, because I will be at the first show I can! Okay, so I admit, these guys had me dancing and moving all over my house while I was listening. Gotta love a band that makes you lose yourself in their music!" - Stephanie Q. McGrath

"Her Bed of Thorns' Alive"

"Her Bed of Thorns are a breath of fresh air in this rough music industry."

"There really is no comparison to any other band trying to make a name right now. Hell, I cannot make a comparison to any other band…period. There is no reason why they cannot be a national name right now. They are clawing and fighting their way, and they are fighting well." - Yvonnesworld.com

"JAM: Local Review – Her Bed of Thorns"

"If you ever needed a quick injection of hard rock to quench your head-banging fix, you could do a lot worse than local band Her Bed of Thorns. "

"If you enjoy professional and talented songwriting, Her Bed of Thorns does not disappoint." - The Daily Aztec By Trenton Villanueva

"Her Bed of Thorns - Alive CD Review"

"Great CD from California based band Her Bed Of Thorns. I was pleasantly surprised when I put this in. While most are hard hitting like “Bad Girl”, “Broken” and the title track “Alive” I like the slower tunes “Fall Down” and “Help Me” as well. I think “Alive” is well rounded and sounds best when played loud." - rocknightmare.com


Still working on that hot first release.



In a global music scene where most bands find themselves following a trend to get noticed, few bands keep with their roots and stay true to the sound that defined the members as musicians. San Diego's Her Bed of Thorns takes pride in breaking that mold and showcases the elements that made rock n'roll what it always has been about; attitude, energy, musicianship and in this case, the Southern California coastal lifestyle.

This four piece rock outfit hailing out of Encinitas, California, brings a blend of groove-based hard rock and melodic, soulful vocals that stand out in a scene where screaming reigns king. Armed with high energy and Marshall charged guitar riffs mixed with their own brand of emotional songwriting, Her Bed of Thorns has the ability to switch from hard-hitting rockers to audience-grabbing ballads setting this band apart from other current and past artists.

Founded in 2007 by vocalist/guitarist Chris Irick and guitarist Tim Nicholson, Her Bed of Thorns went through an evolutionary process that began to define their signature West Coast hard rock sound. Bassist Raj Vyas and drummer Will Thompson finalized the lineup

Her Bed of Thorns' influences are gathered from a combination of traditional blues and heavier classic rocks bands like Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Black Sabbath filtered and refined through the decades to evolve into a more 90?s-grunge/groove rock feel now compared to bands such as Alice In Chains, Metallica, and Guns N' Roses.. bands that put alternative hard rock on the map.

With their fast rise within the San Diego music scene and radio airplay on some of San Diego's biggest rock stations. Her Bed of Thorns is well on its way to becoming a force to be reckoned with and is enjoying the fruits of success in seeing their work being embraced by an ever growing audience of listeners.
