"Excerpt from "Landslide, Actually: Being Part of the Music" March 2009"

"The plug in and then they rock out. They do not play like novices. They do not look like novices. Lead singer Fromm has a bit of that Mick Jagger swagger and a voice that poignantly hits the high notes and ranges into pretty deep emotional territory for a 16-year-old. Baker switches from his acoustic rhythm guitar, perhaps a remnant from his bluegrass days, to an electric guitar and changes chords effortlessly, adding in vocal harmonies. Friesen wails out a sophisticated multi-leveled lead guitar, ranging from haunting minor-chords notes to whimsical humorous add-ins. Lapierre keeps up the steady backbeat with frills that don't seem like frills. They're smart, they're funny, they're fun, and they clearly rock out." - Shelburne Falls and West County Independent

Bio

Landslide, Actually formed out of the alliance of some serious musicians. Rob Fromm and Noel Friesen were longtime musical cohorts, who had been writing songs for over two years, when they decided they needed to get serious and snag some other musicians. First they went to Isaac Baker, an experienced acoustic guitar player who had played with many talented local singers. Then they found Noah Lapierre, another friend of theirs who was proficient at guitar, standup bass, harmonica, mandolin, glockenspiel, piano, and drums. Especially drums. Now the quartet was complete, and they began to craft songs born out of a sound that was tight and thick and raw. Noel's guitar playing recalls the lovechild of Jimmy Page and John Frusciante, Isaac's Rhythm guitar provides a rock-solid base for Noel. Rob is never static on bass, influenced by the likes of Flea and Jaco Pastorius, he crafts intricate supporting bass parts, and his vocal melodies can range from the delicate to the harsh. Finally, Noah rocks the drums with wild abandon, known to break out John Bonham's infamous Moby Dick solo at live shows. Together this foursome wants to become a force in music, and thinks it has the tools, the creativity, the talent, to become just that.
