"Direct, hard hitting, modern rock too good to be locked away, Silversafe’s combination of explosive power chords, surprising transitions and feverish vocals put the shine on a label-ready sound." - Portland Comet Magazine


"Silversafe paints interesting uses of chromatics and major to minor key shifts into an irresistable modern rock palette." - Michael Wallace (Producer/Engineer: Live, Weezer)


"I don't call anything great until 20 years later but Silversafe has great potential! It is energy like this that makes a great band!" - George Massenburg (Producer/Engineer: James Taylor, Journey, Carly Simon..)


"Admittedly the most marketable band I’ve seen in 6 years of trolling local Portland clubs, Silversafe has it all. With the right look, the right gear, the right sound and the right feel, I surmise they’re just one good break away from becoming major label darlings. The best thing a label could do is pick up these boys now, put them into a studio with a good producer to perfect their sound, and then market the hell out of them."

"Rife with thick overdubs, infectious riffs and a sonic of sound few up-and-coming bands can achieve, Silversafe adheres to one basic principle: rock music doesn't have to be formulaic. Indeed, it should be the opposite: Innovative, edgy and unsuspecting. Silversafe is all of the above."

Bio

Silversafe puts on one of the most polished, energetic live shows in the Northwest. More than one critic has called them "the next big thing to come out of Portland." Catchy, heavy, and dynamic, Silversafe's music is reminiscent of a mix of Incubus, Filter, Atreyu and Chevelle. Silversafe strives to write "intelligent rock," songs that possess significance and depth. The band's musicianship has been praised by such industry veterans as producer George Massenburg (James Taylor, Journey) and engineer Michael Wallace (Live, Weezer).
Silversafe has played at several festivals and with several national acts since its inception, and has received airplay and/or been featured on several local radio and television stations. The band is in the process of recording a full-length album at Portland's own Black Diamond Studios.
