"Spanish Rock Rocks The Lamp Post"

The Lamp Post, located in downtown Fresno, is one of the smaller music venues in the area; seeing how full of energy it was on Saturday, one might have missed that, as it hosted a night of rock music en español. Going to a show bursting with Spanish lyrics put to sounds only made possible with latin-influenced music, greatly differs from going to a show without any of it.

Regardless of how the groups came together, where they come from, or how long ago their stories began, each group that performed had something to offer.

For Lezayr, it was a flawless combination of four individuals, each contributing their idea of the alternative latin rock sound that makes Lezayr. “No one has a specific sound. The way we combine with each other… Lezayr will sound totally different with other musicians,” said Alex Ayala, guitarist/vocalist for the group.

Ayala, who founded the group in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, in Mexico began penning down songs at 17. Now in their mid to late twenties, all of the current members of the group have been rocking together for about three years, maintaining a close relationship and support of other local musicians throughout the Fresno area as well.

Lezayr – front man Ayala; guitarist, Jon Pritchard; drummer, Paul Harris; and bassist, Saul Aguilar – provides listeners with songs the can resonate with. Initially, Ayala drew his inspiration from experiences and different kinds of human emotions, creating songs that many may have gone through.

These days, their set list comprises of more complex and evolved versions of Ayala’s first songs, which may be found on their upcoming album, “Listen to The Faces.” The album, they hope to release and tour to promote sometime in the summer... - The Rampage Online

The project was formed in 2002, in Guadalajara, Mexico, by Alex Ayala which found success in the local scene. Unfortunately, family reasons brought him to California forcing him into leaving everything behind.

Once in California, Alex met guitarist, friend and collaborator Jon Pritchard. A few years later at an open mic he met drummer Paul Harris and now former bassist Saul Aguilar which completed the lineup. Bassist Sam Lopez joined the band in 2014.

Lezayr's debut album "Listen to the Faces" was self-released in August 2nd, 2011, followed by an intense series of local shows and promotion. The album was recorded in a living room and completely self-produced and it includes 11 original tracks. Alex explains the album as "... a collection of life experiences... I think everyone has been in a similar situation at one point of their lives, and I think people can relate to that..."

The second release "Break the Chains" is a 5 song EP that was released October, 2014. The EP showcase the indie roots of the band. The third release of the band and second EP is called "Fuego Lento" and was released in support of their 2014 Mexico Tour.

The band is currently working on a new album and getting ready to tour.
