Major Powers & The Lo-Fi Symphony plays Adventure Rock™. Imagine Mary Poppins writing songs for Weezer during a cliff diving competition between Freddie Mercury and Tom Waits while Danny Elfman makes out with Indiana Jones during a game of Dungeons & Dragons. Or don't imagine that and listen for yourself. Or watch:
Hi. I'm Nicholas Jarvis Powers, self-taught pianist and songwriter. I'm on the left. I have been rolling around in the gutters of the East Bay since I was a little kid. Kevin and Dylan Gautschi (guitar & drums, respectively) are French brothers and are the sons of Pamela Wood, bass player for Bay Area weirdo-rock legends Leila & The Snakes.
Instead of a boilerplate autobiography where we drone on about our song writing, harmonies, musical influences or our sonic exploration of the human condition, simultaneously tragic and hilarious, we'd like to point you to some recent reviews: CLICK THIS SHIT FOR RECENT REVIEWS.
