The best kept secret in music



Slow to Surface is nursed by a solid history of classics that include Hank Sr., George Jones and Johnny Cash and a source of new music themselves. The band also digs into newer material and finds its entertainment in the latest from Godspeed, You Black Emperor, Broken Social Scene, and Album Leaf. - Homie from 107.5 KXTE Las Vegas

"las vegas band"

Slow to Surface performs some of the smartest rock 'n' roll Vegas has to offer. Lyrics that border on poetry and rhythms that shift like a tropical storm, while the fabric of guitar intricacies cinch it all into a tightly wrapped ball of thunder - Chris King- City Life, Las Vegas


In an age where music is judged on its style and not it's substance, Slow To Surface's dynamic emotional rock may slip beneath the radar. But in a better place, where honesty, originality, and passion are rewarded, these Las Vegas dynamos would be kings.
- PJ Perez-


In their quest for originality, the band utilizes inventive songwriting to lay down a variety of epic blueprints whose structure is complex, yet easily interpreted. From here, Slow To Surface becomes as one mind, body and soul as tight musicianship seamlessly breathes life into their creations through richly defined layers of soothing melodies and captivating harmonics. -
