Biography

When the current lineup of Laughing Colors (who now go by their fan denoted ‘LC’), came together in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, the rock quartet said they just wanted to make their music their life. Currently have sold 50,000+ CDs, 15,000 T-shirts, and playing 150+ shows per year.

For The Blink of An Ideal World, LC worked with acclaimed producer Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Megadeth, Duran Duran) and Baltimore’s favorite Steve Wright. LC’s emotive intensity is undeniable on these 8 songs (plus a bonus track), which go deeper into the psyche of the band and their sound than ever before. The band says they were more concerned with ‘exploring emotions and sound’ than with looking for that elusive ‘magic airplay formula’. Yet, LC’s signature dynamic, colossal rock sound is highlighted by evocative, relatable lyrics and hooky melodies. Much inspiration for this recording came while the band was in Greenland performing for the US troops last year. In the sub-zero Arctic that was dark 24 hours a day, LC was affected not only by the land’s beauty but by the men and women they met who serve our country. They imagine what an ideal world is like, even for the blink of an eye.

In the Mid-Atlantic, LC’s songs and pure rock live performance have contributed to their reputation as one of the region’s most popular bands. Any fan will fervently tell you that you must experience LC live to get the full impact of their music. The electrically charged crowd is an integral part of the show, participating throughout and responding enthusiastically to charismatic, evocative front-man Dave Tieff, the tasteful guitar signatures of Corey Hall on guitar, and the pounding, fierce rhythm of Will Dorsey Jr. on drums and Dan Welsh on bass.

    What ever happened to Sex, Drugs, and Rock n'Roll? Now we've just got AIDS, crack, and techno.
