"May 2009 Sonicbids "Artists 2 Watch""

So we have got to be honest here. At first glance of this group Law Of Attraction you notice two hot vocalists. That was more than enough to get us intrigued. Next you turn on the music and you are drawn from your seat right to the dance floor or empty space in the room you are in. Law Of Attraction is the first Latin group with Reggae influence that we have covered in A2W. They merge various genres together like we have never enjoyed before. There are eight different musicians that make up this group. They all help to create the amazing music that this group is becoming known for. We enjoyed all the tracks we heard but we really loved, “Why’d You Lie.” The vocals and composition are just great. This music grabs you & pulls you in. Grab a partner, turn the volume up and enjoy Law Of Attraction. - Skope Entertainment Magazine

"Thirteen musical souls dig deep to find their passions"

..."Then there’s the kind of soul felt deep down — in the gravy-and-red-chile-tasty sense. The sexy sense, that is, as in Sweet Soul Music. In Albuquerque, there are no finer purveyors of that sort of soul than
Law of Attraction (L of A), the eight-member
funky-salsa jam band that is best
described in one fan’s delirious declaration at a recent show: “They’re like Springsteen’s
E Streeters meet The Supremes and Carlos Santana on Isleta Boulevard!� Hype? Sure, but the L of A sizzle is that good. The front line of Latina vocalist-dancers
Elizabeth Smith and Lydia Garcia
share moves with poet-MC Hakim Bellamy and singer-guitarist Dan Garduño, with Eric Owens on bass, Gabe Harrington on keyboards and drummer Camilo Quinones.

Founder and sax player Delmone Taylor explains that the band’s name “refers to an esoteric principle that you get what you
think about and your thoughts determine your experience.� Put another way: “We’re
New Mexico’s All Star Band,� Taylor says, “a new indescribable fl avor, like gumbo, that downhome sound that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling all over your body. It’s food for your soul.�
A Law of Attraction show can shift
rapidly from hot salsa to r-and-b to witty jibes mixed with choreographed dance moves. The audiences eat it up. You can
get a taste yourself at The Launchpad and other Burque clubs. Check the L of A MySpace page for upcoming shows.

Lydia Garcia (Vocals)-"The Movement"

Quote: "I'm not really out here trying to become an American Idol, I want to take people to that same place where music has taken me: Away from a sometimes turbulent reality."

From where?: Everywhere by way of Los Angeles, California.

From a family where 4 guitars, 15 singers and 20-plus dancers, was their idea of a "get together". On the suggestion of her mother, she picked up a guitar at age 8. At age 19, her mother had a different suggestion...that the daughter of a minister shouldn't be gracing bars after hours and hangin' out with miscreant musicians. Limited to a singin' diet of weddings and quincianeras, she had to get her "Halleluah" voice out from under her parents' roof. Fortunately, she found a new family in the church of music. Her new worship includes the beloved audience and the spirit of world music. She's sung, songwritten and danced for bands that have played Salsa, Reggae, Tejano and Afro Latin music. Classically trained in the "school of life", she's known for adding her own latin feel every track she's fingerprinted. She's received Best Bi-lingual Duet of the Year from the New Mexico Music Awards and been nominated for other songs as well.

Delmone Taylor (Sax)- "The Chef ... combining all the right and wrong elements"
