Madera (2006)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Creativity dominates the members of Madera in what they say, do, and the music they write. On or off stage there is no other group that can be considered as dynamic and entertaining. Each member has their own strengths and they all feed off of each other.

Ask anyone who knows Zach and they will agree that no one has an equivalent mind to his. His ability to change any normal situation into something completely ___ing absurd is unparalleled. Likewise, he is extremely quick on his feet and maneuvers the crowd to his will. With seven years experience as a choral conductor, a degree in music from TCU, he uses nuances in vocal phrasing, and rhythmic integrity; Zach knows his place and his place is in front.

Strong and silent, Seane never fails to drop jaws with his inhuman speed and creativity on the guitar. Pulling influences from Jason Becker and Marty Friedman, along with his intensive classical training, which brought him to international levels, his sound is unequalled. His knowledge in counterpoint and musicality move both as rhythmic impetus and lyric phasing, making Madera’s music subtly intricate yet blissfully raw.

A wee man with a giant set… Patrick is our organic metronome, but so much more. With drawings from Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, Danny Carey, he provides rhythms that adds the third dimension to Madera. With drum technique that shatters the monotony of popular rock, Patrick still finds musical sensitivity and dynamics to give Madera its distinctive groove.

Madera will be in the studio with award winning producer Alex Gherst in January 2006 at ITR Studios to record their first full cd.
