Almost Awake is a young female-fronted, five piece rock band from Las Vegas. This fast rising, high energy group of teenagers (17-19 yrs old) range in musical influences from Paramore, and Nirvana, to Joe Satriani and Marcus Miller. The result is a bombastic blend of melody and musicianship.
Formed in mid-2014 Almost Awake came together when prodigy guitarist Grady Jones and fiery drummer Gabe Conover teamed up with longtime friend and gifted 16 year old vocalist, Vick Liano. Addison Egelhoff came aboard on rhythm guitar bringing amazing stage presence, and finally Tommy Cochran brought his punk influence and attitude on bass, creating a unique combination of styles and songwriting which is Almost Awake.
After the well-received release of their first EP ‘The Explorer’, the band has since produced several hit videos, including a popular rendition of 5 Seconds of Summer’s ‘Long Way Home’. They have just released their highly anticipated full length LP ‘Until Tomorrow’ to rave reviews, and are currently planning a fall tour.
The band, which has garnered a huge following in a very short time and huge praise from critics, was chosen from thousands of bands to represent the House of Blues Music Forward foundation and Hard Rock Rising international competition after only a few months as a band and has since been selected for radio play by Extreme Radio X107.5, Mix 94.1 and many others.
Almost Awake has sold out headlining venues such as Vinyl at The Hard Rock Las Vegas, performed throughout the west coast with The Extreme Tour, played at the Extreme Thing Sports and Music Festival with many bands such as Mayday Parade, Saosin w Anthony Green, The Story So Far, Bayside, Set it Off, and Dance Gavin Dance, played the Mesa Music Festival with Brett Scallions from Fuel and Authority Zero, and opened for such acts as Escape the Fate, Polyphia, Slaves, Capture the Crown, A lot like Birds, Goldboot, Handguns, Roam, Broadside, Hit the Lights and many more.
