Bio

Imagine a band that combined everything you liked about rock n’ roll. With songs that would be equally at home on an Austin Powers soundtrack or a Tony Hawk skateboarding video game. From the retro-hip of the mid-60s to the alternative edge of today, The Superficials have mixed their favorite ingredients in a rock n’ roll blender and created an utterly fresh brand of music that can only be described as superficial.

Josh Millman and Michael Page are the main ingredients in this “soup”. Each one is a standout singer/songwriter in their own right, yet their collaborative efforts have created a buzz around this Lennon/McCartney-esque partnership. Seamlessly sharing the lead vocal responsibilities and acting as co-frontmen, Millman and Page have an undeniable chemistry that breaks the confines of the traditional band lineup. They found their Ringo in drummer Rob Nelson, whose powerful pulse and stage antics round out the trio’s personality.

The Superficials’ debut album “oldschool” was lauded for it’s "chiming guitars, buoyant melodies, and sweet harmonies” and its “lushly tuneful gems that linger in the mind” (The Oregonian). The band’s sophomore effort “Everybody’s Girl” received even more critical acclaim. “Simply put, one of the finest indie pop CDs you’ll hear in 2004. Grade A and extremely highly recommended!” (Not Lame Records). “The new CD from Portland, Oregon's The Superficials has it all. Everything from Elvis Costello pop sense to Jellyfish harmonies, as well as the new wave energy of The Knack, which shows just how versatile and talented this band is! An awesome debut from one of the most promising new acts of 2004!” (popbang radio)

Hot on the heels of “Everybody’s Girl”, The Superficials are already back in the studio recording their next full-length album. With their brand new single “Reality TV”, a quirky commentary on America’s current obsession, Millman and Page once again reveal their consistent high standards of excellence. Add the hard-driving “Gasoline”, the sexed-up “Do It All The Time” and the mournful ballad “Hey Candy”, and the indelible voice of The Superficials is loud and clear.

Who’s hearing it? "I need to get into band management because these guys have it...Every song is a hit...They f...in' rock!" (Liz Wilde, national radio personality ). And she’s not the only one who thinks so. "The Superficials kicked my royal butt with their own brand of hard paced originals, cool guitars, and non-stop stage action, great great band indeed!” (Two Louies Magazine). Budweiser seems to thinks so too, having sponsored them as Oregon’s True Music Live band for two years running. Brian Blair of the Oregon Music Guide said “If someone were to tell me that Portland, Oregon’s The Superficials was their favorite band, I wouldn’t be surprised.” With a devoted if not rabid fanbase spreading the word, The Superficials are popping up on radio stations, movie soundtracks, websites, and mp3 playlists from Seattle to Spain.
