A new band is on its way to the digital airwaves with their timeless Alternative Rock anthems and global message. The hot Los Angeles-based band RADIUS is already turning up the heat with their feel good, world ethereal rock ‘n’ roll. The band is a crossover between powerful Alternative Rock and emotional arena Euro-rock.

The members of RADIUS have quickly found themselves at the front of the pack with the release of the highly anticipated EP Crossing Over. With the best music supervisors in the film and TV industry vying for the rights to use the band’s music in shows like the CW’s One Tree Hill and the Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels ad campaign, it’s clear that RADIUS is becoming a true powerhouse in the music industry.

Crossing Over is just a small sample of the raw talent that pours out of Matthew Turbak (vocals/guitar), Thomas Gilbert (guitar/vocals), Joseph Chavanu (drums) and Jan Pauck (bass). Matthew’s vocals are strong, emotional, and reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen. The lyrics are well crafted and tell stories of love, life, struggles, and passion. You can hear a strong influence from U2’s The Edge in Thomas’ unique, lush guitar melodies. Jan’s solid driving bass lines are fueled by Joseph’s foundational rhythm. Together they create the dynamic sound of RADIUS.

Even before RADIUS’ breakout new album was a hit, the band was turning heads. This was proven true when legendary producer Stephen Short took an early interest in the band and later in his production of Crossing Over.

The music created by RADIUS takes listeners on an inspirational journey. Whether you’re relaxing in the sun to Indian Summer on your favorite beach or jamming out to Touching Down or Crossing Over while cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway, you’ll feel enlightened and free by the end of the song.
As you experience the music of RADIUS, you’ll discover their mission to spread a message of love, hope, and change for the better.

RADIUS just finished a nine-date tour across the beautiful country of Canada with the multi-platinum recording artist Everclear. While on tour, the band had a phenomenal time meeting fans, rockin’ out, and promoting their new album. RADIUS is currently back in Los Angeles working on new material. Even off the road, the members of RADIUS are passionate about what they do and are always looking for new ways to connect with fans and share their music with the world.
