Lift The Medium

Forming in June of 2013 Lift the Medium brings together former members from two of greater Cincinnati's highest profile rock bands. Consisting of singer/guitarist Joey Vasselet, formerly of Rootbound, and former members of Atlantis Becoming Justin Kennedy on bass, Jake Bartone on drums and vocals, and Joe Bartone on guitar and vocals the band brings a sound that is simultaneously fresh and classic. Soaring lead vocals reminiscent of a young Chris Cornell or Brett Smith (Shinedown) and secondary vocals harkening to vintage Aerosmith, Queen, and David Lee Roth era Van Halen couple to create a vocal sound many modern rock bands simply can't duplicate. The mastery of instrumentation that each member possesses also makes for a one of a kind sound. With musical influences as varied as Metallica, Marvin Gaye, Pink Floyd, Muse, Elton John, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Alice in Chains, Primus, Pantera, P-Funk, and Rush the music behind the vocals comes out a pure, unadulterated, classic American Rock 'n Roll. Part Classic rock, part Grunge, part Motown, part Prog, part sticky Funk, Lift the Medium's songs will leave you singing, dancing, head banging, driving fast, and feeling good.
