Rock + Funk + Reggea + Hip-Hop = Lojic. We keep it in the tradition of playing music we love and not bending to mainstream influential trends. Therefore it will blow up long term. Solid business plan... drink beer.

Biography

Lojic was realized over the course of several years, combining the dreams and talents of a highly skilled group of musicians from St. Louis MO. Growing up virtually around the corner from one another, Johnny O’Neil (Bass/Vocals), Christian Kirk (Drums), Will Betts (Vocals) and Jonny Hughes (Guitar) have been developing their skills since a very young age. Lojic’s distinctive sound stands out in this day and age of “cookie cutter” rock bands and American Idol pop stars. Each member brings his own experiences and tastes to the writing process and the music melds together, forming a sound that is uniquely, Lojic.
Bringing together a love of Funk, Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop and food, Lojic has set out to do the impossible. After playing around the local St. Louis scene and honing their live skills, they took the natural next step, life on the road. Using every resource, Lojic launched into 3 years of touring which took them from Omaha to Austin, as far northeast as Columbus, as far southeast as Atlanta, and back up north to Chicago and all stops in between. While on the road, playing venues of all sizes, lojic has dealt with flat tires, snowstorms, tornadoes, a trailer falling off the van, and even being held at gunpoint. Bottom-line, they are only strengthened through these experiences.
After 4 years of touring, writing, recording and touring some more, Lojic developed an excellent fan base throughout the Midwest and its surrounding regions. During their time on the road, Lojic has had the opportunity to open for some highly notable acts such as: Sammy Hagar, Naughty by Nature, Fuel, The Urge, Twista, Tech Nine and Hot Action Cop. Even while playing with better-known national acts, Lojic has held their own, gaining new fans and selling huge amounts of merchandise – even outselling Fuel while performing with them in Louisville, KY.
Lojic’s strength has always been their live show. While relying almost exclusively on word of mouth promotion, they consistently have throngs of repeat fans showing up to see their high-energy performances. In 2003, they released their first album “Lojic”, 2005 saw the release of “The Manual” with Steve Ewing (The Urge) in the producer’s chair. They have moved over 5000 discs, with virtually no radio or major promotional support, selling significant amounts of music through iTunes and moving units in places such as Canada and Japan.
As for the future, Lojic has a new EP scheduled for release in spring of 2006. The multi –media EP will include a Lojic mini-movie, produced by Adamant Agency, in addition to three new music tracks. A move to Los Angeles (In pursuit of several management and booking agencies) is also scheduled for June 2006.
Bottom line, in this world of A.D.D. and Myspace, (where Lojic boasts over 9000 friends and 80,000+ hits) you have only a millisecond to get through to someone. Lojic’s music will hook the fans and when people get the opportunity to witness their explosively entertaining live show – they’re hooked for life. Every time Lojic steps on stage they have something to prove and every time they deliver.
