Biography

The Easy Marks is a young, powerhouse rock band whose roots are based in the American Midwest. After traveling across the country last winter with all their personal possessions packed in a van, they finally found themselves content to call Los Angeles home. The Easy Marks write and record their own original music, whose style and sound can best be described as a blend of hard rock and punk very reminiscent of The Stooges and New York Dolls. The band has recently released a self-titled EP that is all encompassing of their distinct raw sound and old soul. While The Easy Marks are heavily influenced by the seventies punk era, they lend much of their own voices to their work - whether it's the growling lyrics, a squealing guitar riff, or the electrifying wave that is their live performance. The Easy Marks have been performing regularly since their formation in early 2008 and have played at notable venues such as The Troubadour, The Viper Room, and The Whisky a Go-Go in Los Angeles and Trash Bar, Redstar, and Club Rehab in New York.

The Easy Marks will be performing this year at the 11th Annual Method Fest Independent Film Festival in March. Their music can now be requested on the internet radio station Indie 104 ~ iRadio LA, voted as the first "Internet Radio Station of the Year" by New Music Weekly Magazine (both gigs booked through SonicBids). In January, the new single 14 West debuted on DJ Octoon's show "I'm in a Band" on UCLA Radio - dubbed the best in unsigned music. The Easy Marks were featured guests on "The Diced Show," a nationally syndicated podcast with an average listenership of 5,000 people per week for an in-depth, riotous interview (check it out at www.thedicedshow.com). Thanks to fan voting, the band came in second place on Alternative Addiction's music news website (www.alternativeaddiction.com) to be featured as Unsigned Band of the Month for December 2008.
