"CD Review"

"And the bass lines roll and flow like a tidal wave...The drums are solid as stone, ripping ruts in genres like driving an 18-wheeler through the ornery neighbor's garden...The eloquent guitar work ranges from lightning quips to a garage style solo..."

Bio

In the summer of 2002, the small crowds who caught Sally Majestic's early performances around Fort Worth, TX knew they were hearing something different—music at once both challenging and engaging, built around solid drumbeats and abrupt shifts in tempo, blistering guitar hooks, locked in bass lines, with passionate vocals and lesson-learned lyrics. The air in those rooms was charged, electric, and no one was more surprised by the sudden surge of energy than the three members of the band itself, each with wildly differing musical backgrounds and influences. Drummer Tim Cowdin had learned his driving rhythms from turning the stereo on and playing along; bassist PJ Fry used his reggae-punk songwritng style to set the mood; and Scott Griffin combined a rootsy, rough edged songwriting style with catchy guitar riffs.

Over the next three years, the band has concentrated hard on perfecting their live show, each making significant strides in maturity and complexity. Along with a growing reputation for intense live shows, they won over a loyal audience, as well as earning the respect of the many musicians Sally Majestic has played with. In December 2005 Sally Majestic started work on a new full length album, “We want the album to reflect how much we enjoy playing together,” Scott Griffin says. They decided to record the new material with Alex Gerst of Indian Trail Recording Studio. The resulting sound has been spontaneous, straightforward and introspective. The lyrics explore both the trouble and the joy in life. Built around clean lines and concise melodies, the music surprises at every turn, often vigorous and energetic. The new album will solidify Sally Majestic's unique sound, showcasing a cohesive and clear vision that marks a new stage in the band’s evolution.
