"The Lot Lizard Review"

RATING SCALE "1" Indicates the Lowest Score "5" Indicates The Highest Score Recording Quality/Production: 4 Lead Vocals: 4 Musicianship: 4 Lyric Writing: 4 Music Composing: 4 Melodies: 5 Song Arrangement: 4 Quality of EPK Content: 4 Overall Delivery: 4 ----------------------------- Dear Amy, Thanks for submitting the material for the evaluation. I enjoyed the songs very much. To give you insight to the scoring scale above, the majority of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range in the various categories. Whenever an artist sees a 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 as a score in a certain category (or categories) it means that's an area I feel they need to improve and develop. When an artist sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, it's a validation from a professional, confirming that the songs are of the highest level and show strong potential in the ultra-competitive music industry. To really raise the bar, every artist should work hard to earn a 4.5 or 5 in every category. It's a very competitive business and people averaging in the 3's (or less) will probably not get too far without a great deal of improvement and development. I don't give out 4's and 5's easily, so any of those you see, you have earned. Well done! -------------------------- If you are trying to gain the attention of record companies, music publishers, booking agents or top managers, your game plan should include: college radio promotion, publicity, live performances, Internet marketing, social media and CD/merchandise sales. Just having a great CD and live show are no longer enough in today's music business. You have to show industry executives you have a product that has been marketed successfully on the local or regional level. ---------------------------- For a FREE resource of helpful information, I encourage you to visit the "Media Appearances" section of my Web site, www.FoleyEntertainment.com. You will see links to several television interviews I've done, which are filled with advice and tips that may be of help to you. If you only have the time to watch two of the clips, I'd say the most informative are: "Poughkeepsie Live - Second Appearance" - from Time Warner Cable Television in New York and "69 News At Sunrise" from WFMZ in Pennsylvania. ----------------------------- On a side note, to send this message to you via the SonicBids system, I have to click on "Selected" or "Not Selected." However, in this particular opportunity, all submissions are "Selected" - so to speak, as everyone who submits their music will receive a free evaluation. It's my pleasure to listen to your music and give some feedback. It's not like most of the opportunities on SonicBids, where some artists get selected - and others are not selected, such as a festival or contest of some kind. Thanks again for the music submission and continued best wishes! Good luck at your gig tonight in Everett, WA. --------------------------- Gene Foley EugeneFoleyMusic@aol.com www.FoleyEntertainment.com - Foley Entertainment


"The Lot Lizard"

The Lot Lizard is a 3-piece heavy rock band based in the Seattle Washington area. Influences of doom, stonerrock, sludge, blues, and jazz forge the atmospheric space-rock that is The Lot Lizard. In 2002 drummer, Josh Burns, and Guitarist, Jake Lagozzino, gave birth to The Lot Lizard deep in a basement in Armpit, Ohio. Donning trucker hats and biily-bob teefs Josh and Jake took their riff-rock to the streets. Early favorites like Consumption and Aww Haww gained popularity in local venues and The Lot Lizard garnered a small following. In 2003 Josh deployed with the U.S. Army and ultimately ended up at West Point Academy training future commanders. In 2004 Josh met artist/singer-songwriter, Amy Lawrence, in New York state and together they rocked and extended their educations in West Virginia, Florida, & Arizona with the bands Cracker Beach, Rugen, & Heavy Mellow.

After Josh's departure from Ohio Jake continued to play music with Gallion, OH rockers Spacecharge, and his solo acoustic project 30 Foot Tarp. In 2005 he moved back to his home of Washington State.
In 2010 Josh and Amy completed school in Arizona and also moved to Washington. After far too long of a hiatus Josh and Jake reformed The Lot Lizard in early 2011. They revamped old songs, created new ones, and recruited the sweet Amybob to play the bass. Or Maybe she recruited herself.; Either way, she rocks.

The Lot Lizard is a 3-piece heavy rock band based in the Seattle Washington area. Influences of doom, stonerrock, sludge, blues, and jazz forge the atmospheric space-rock that is The Lot Lizard. In 2002 drummer, Josh Burns, and Guitarist, Jake Lagozzino, gave birth to The Lot Lizard deep in a basement in Armpit, Ohio. Donning trucker hats and biily-bob teefs Josh and Jake took their riff-rock to the streets, yo. Early favorites like Consumption and Aww Haww gained popularity in local venues and The Lot Lizard garnered a small following. In 2003 Josh deployed with the U.S. Army and ultimately ended up at West Point Academy training future commanders. In 2003 Josh met artist/singer-songwriter, Amy Lawrence, in New York state and together they rocked and extended their educations in West Virginia, Florida, & Arizona with the bands Cracker Beach, Rugen, Cartella Chasers, & Heavymellow. ?After Josh's departure from Ohio Jake continued to play music with Gallion, OH rockers Spacecharge, and his solo acoustic project 30 Foot Tarp.

After far too long of a hiatus Josh and Jake reformed The Lot Lizard in early 2011. They revamped old songs, created new ones, and recruited the sweet Amybob to play the bass. Or Maybe she recruited herself..either way, she rocks. ?As a 3-piece The Lot Lizard creates austral paintings of fuzz-drenched groove. Bluesy, doomy, progressive, & dynamic. ?The sound is reminiscent of Kyuss, early Tool, and Melvins with maybe a couple of tablespoons of Helmet for good measure. In January of 2012, local promoter, Thom Truitt, took The Lot Lizard under his wing. Partnering with Knottygoods.com, Truitt and his TwoGunStagger line of quality shit, put The Lot Lizard into the recording studio in January of 2012 to cut their first extended play recording released in February.
