We are preparing our first CD for release in the Spring of 2009. We stream 6 of our songs on our mySpace page (/mysteriousface).



Mysterious Face is an alternative rock band, formed in 2004 in Seattle, WA by Chris Brush, Steve Brush, Richard Gilbert, and Reid Parker.

Chris and Rich met in college, and have been making music ever since. They played together for a few years in two 3-piece Rochester, NY bands: Eighth Harvest and Mind of Paul. They also performed as a duo on occasion. Moving their operations to Seattle, they teamed up with Chris's brother Steve and local drummer Reid to form Mysterious Face shortly after their arrival.

Mysterious Face can rock the house, and at the same time blow your mind -- but we will never put you to sleep. We play tightly-crafted, soulful songs with thought-provoking lyrics, that blossom into stirring improvisations at a cinematic scale. Every show is a new experience, as we are not afraid to take chances with our music. We can be loud and heavy, but always musical, and we always work into our sets opportunities to tone the mood down, opening up spaces within which to breathe.

We all come from different musical backgrounds and artistic sensibilities. Richard's early youth was spent making Super8 films, watching Japanese monster movies and German expressionist silent films, and listening to The Beatles and The Who -- all of which have influenced his vision, lyrics, and delivery. Rich and Chris met at film school, becoming friends over discussions about David Lynch and the surrealists -- this accounts for the lush cinematic landscapes and theatrical sensibilities they strive to achieve through their music.

We have been favorably compared to Radio Head, Yo La Tengo, David Bowie, Coldplay, and the Grateful Dead, which we feel exemplifies our broad range of influences and interests.
