Biography

Formed in the spring of 2007, “Lieder” (which means “songs” in German) was personally given its name by rock legend Pete Townshend of “The Who”.

“Lieder”, a trio based out of northern New Jersey, is an original band who displays an aggressive style of power pop, steeped in the tradition of American and British rock and roll.

Being influenced by ‘The Who” itself, lead vocalist/guitarist Mike Kosturko produces an infectious brand of memorable songs with the potency and precision of any other established artist.

Joe LaPara, a committed disciple of rhythmic progression, lays down meaty yet melodic bass lines, which holds the bands sound together.

While commanding a solid tempo, drummer Ron Pasanda adds a flourish of strategically placed fills, without disrupting the songs relevance.

Although they have had much success recording, playing live is what this band thrives on. They revel in the immediate response to their energetic style of play and challenge anyone not to enjoy their enthusiasm.

All three have come together from years of experience to unite their influences into one enormous collaboration and celebration of a genre that has seemed to dissipate over the years.

THE ART OF THE POWER POP TRIO!

Lyrics

Doesn't Anybody Care?

Written By: Mike Kosturko

Doesn’t Anybody Care

By the way I found today that you were leaving here

All the time I thought you were a friend of mine

If you choose to walk away it’s your good name I’ll smear

Every day …. I said you were…. I knew you were…I swore you were…

Chorus:

All the time..... I thought you were a friend of mine

Doesn’t anybody care about you…about you girl

All the way…. greet the brand new day

Doesn’t anybody care about you

Every day I try so hard to keep from falling down

All the time I feel as though I can’t go on

If you choose to act that way I'll leave you in this town

Every day …. I said you were…. I knew you were…I swore you were…

Chorus:

All the time..... I thought you were a friend of mine

Doesn’t anybody care about you…about you girl

All the way….you greet the brand new day

Doesn’t anybody care about you

Instrumental Break

Chorus:

All the time.... I thought you were a friend of mine

Doesn’t anybody care about you…about you girl

All the way….you greet the brand new day

Doesn’t anybody care about you
