Feeling a bit camera shy


Rising up in the midst of the eminent Texas music scene has emerged a band that puts a new twist on rock. Never before have five young men from such diverse backgrounds come together to create anything like this. A captivating front man with a killer voice, edgy sound, and lyrics that tell a story, it’s no wonder why they continue to draw multiple heart beats at a time. They have set a new standard to live up to in the world of music; makeshifte.

makeshifte began with a completely different roster, and now, with Mikey remaining the only original member, they are stronger than ever. Even as the roster changed, so did the guys places on stage. Mikey found his way from drums to front and center on the microphone, Ren gave up the mic to perfect his passion on bass, and Josh established himself on the keyboard as well as his guitar. It’s easy to see makeshifte is a band that can do anything they set their minds to.

As of summer 2005, makeshifte has created a buzz all around the US. With small acoustic tours under their belt, being voted “Musicians Choice” in the 94.5 (Clear Channel) Texas Buzz Awards, and winning battle of the bands to play select Warped Tour dates. Makeshifte recently opened multiple dates for Hawthorne Heights, played Lollapalooza 2006, and will be featured on the Hot Topic compilations being distributed nation wide in October. Make sure to check them out on iTunes where makeshifte is featured as a Lollapalooza buzz artist.
