""Why on Earth" CD Review (2005)"

With huge anthemic acoustic guitars, twin female vocals, it can only be some sort of power pop version of the Dixie Chicks,a soccer mom [and] Thelma & Louise hell bent on feeling good about themselves. 'Sunday Sadness' is a welcome change of pace, a weekend afternoon drift of a song...often the songs have an irresistible urgency to them.

Every Lullaby Crush song contains beautiful vocal harmonies backed by a tight band. We are all about harmony, hooks and catchy melody lines. We always strive to put on a well paced, dynamic and professional live show- a perfect mix of up-tempo and mid-tempo songs along with several ballads; we cover a whole range of emotions and moods that really connects us with our audience.

BIO: Lullaby Crush's humble beginnings occur in Oakland, California in early 2002 when guitarist/songwriter and native Californian Jason Cole posted a "Female Vocalist Wanted" ad online. The first to respond who could actually sing was one Val Lipman. As Jason recalls later, "the musical spark was there and the fire, all be it small, was lit."

For many months Val and Jason searched in vain for a second female voice to complete Jason’s twin lead singer, harmony vocal concept. In July 2002 after listening to over twelve potential candidates, San Diego native Gia Brazil showed up for an audition. Gia, a co-worker of Jason’s at the time, got the job almost instantly. "Her sweet, soft voice really blended well with Val’s", remarked Jason.

As the trio worked feverishly on new songs, the search for a solid rhythm section was on. In October, drummer Gil Guinan answered the call. Jason states, "At the audition Gil counted off the song, 'Why on Earth' and within about four bars I knew he had the job; He was solid and in the pocket." The unnamed band of four soon relocated to San Francisco as the search for a bass player continued. In December of 2003, after several false starts with other bassists, Lullaby Crush welcomed Fergus Lenehan as their fifth member. Hailing from Tullamore Ireland, Fergus's solid bass chops, pro experience, and all around good time drinking abilities made him the perfect fit as the final piece of puzzle. (Even with the funny accent.)

The band was named Lullaby Crush in October of 2002 and soon after, on Saturday November 9th, they played their first show at the poorly-ventilated and now defunct Voodoo Lounge in San Francisco’s gritty Mission District. Playing to a full “sweating room only” house of well over 150 cheering fans, the band's debut was very well received. It was the first of many more entertaining and moving performances.

2003 saw the band begin work on their debut album. Released in September 2004 on Last Stop Records, the eleven-song CD, "Why on Earth" has continued to sell rapidly and garner accolades from the local music community. Through constant gigging and tireless promotion, the band is earning new fans throughout Northern California and beyond. Many of the songs from their debut album have been picked up by local and national radio stations as well as internet and satellite radio. 2005 is shaping up to be the best year yet for the talented and powerful acoustic rock band known as Lullaby Crush. Please stay tuned to the story, as their star continues to rise.
