TRUE LIVE IS A MODERN ENSEMBLE WITH A PARTICULARLY UNIQUE LINE UP, THAT CROSSES BOUNDARIES OF STYLE WHILE ENGAGING AUDIENCES WITH SONGS OF PASSION AND PERFORMANCES AND RECORDINGS OF MUSICAL AND LYRICAL DEPTH. AN ORIGINAL, CONTEMPORARY, ORGANIC SOUND THAT COULD ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS MONSTROUS.

TRUE LIVES SOUND IS THE PRODIGAL BASTARD SON OF A MUSICAL ORGY, BUT NOW THE SON HAS GROWN INTO A SOPHISTICATED GENTLEMAN, THE SECOND ALBUM ‘FOUND LOST’ OOZES INFLUENCES FROM PAST ERAS, BUT THERE IS SOMETHING UNDENIABLY FUTURISTIC ABOUT THE WAY THAT IT IS SPLICED WITH CUTTING EDGE OFTEN LEFT FIELD MODERN STYLE.
