"Tilted - 2 songs"

Most rock ’n’ roll songs aren’t about anything. Sometimes that matters, and sometimes it’s easy to forget. With Tilted, it’s easy to get swept up in the power of their anthemic songs, and to forget. They have a modern U2 vibe with big drums and guitars. Choruses are mighty, and would have little trouble reaching those people up by the rafters. Most of all, the actual melodies are simple and catchy, particularly in “Illusion Fields”—the verse is one you’d roll down the windows for on the highway. For a first effort, Tilted certainly has the energy and enthusiasm well covered. Bretton Robillard’s voice is that of a natural rock star. However, I just don’t know what the songs are about. Big deal I guess; what was “I Am the Walrus” about? (Fillmore Slim) - The Noise Boston - April 2006


Tilted Demo:
Run Boy Run!
Illusion Fields



April 2005. Boston. The Ruby Room Bar at the Onyx Hotel. After two months of emailing each other, Mike and Bretton meet for the first time. After several martinis each, Brett auditions on the spot. He belts out the first verse and chorus of Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses. Nails it to everyone's amazement in the quiet bar. Mike was left with his jaw dropping due to utter amazement and utter embarrassment from all the people starting at the two. Brett was a true lead singer - great voice, attention starved, insecure, and fan of fruity drinks. Mike and Brett decide to call it a band and proceed to write songs together.

Both share a fondness for U2 and music from the 80's, but the band's unique sound comes from the mash-up of Bretton's Duran Duran/George Michael influences and Mike's Rush/Led Zeppelin background. After four disappointing auditions for a guitar player, Mike decided to switch from drums to guitar (since he writes the music on guitar anyway). The band proceeded to get fleshed out with a bass player and drummer. They quickly booked their first show... February 1, 2006 at the Middle East in Cambridge, MA. Shows at Harpers Ferry and TT the Bear's followed in subsequent months. Currently the band is finishing the music for their first album due in the Spring.
