Shadows Lie is a Rock / Acoustic / Electronica band formed in New York, NY, United States.
Rising from the New York City underground is Shadows Lie. SL has played legendary venues such as Webster Hall, CBGBs, The Bitter End, The Cutting Room, Don Hills, Crash Mansion, and Snitch. They are currently touring up and down the East Coast, and can be found playing national music venues such as The Crocodile Rock Cafe in PA, Northern Lights in NY, Maximum Capacity in MA, The Webster Theater in CT, The Stone Pony in NJ and various other clubs, schools and venues throughout the East…
Their music is a unique mix of Days of the New-style acoustic guitars, Portishead-like electronics and heavy-guitars reminiscent of Staind and Linkin Park built around a powerful singer whose vocal style ranges from Alanis Morissette, to Incubus. Their 2007 debut LP entitled "Echoes" is written, recorded, produced and performed by Kira and CT. The fusion of Kira's lyrics and vocal melodies and CT's guitar bass, programming and production work form the basis of a fresh sound that uniquely melds sonic strength with emotional truth and vulnerability.
Shadows Lie site among their diverse influences Incubus, Alice In Chains, Bjork the Crystal Method and Sevendust. The often times aggressive yet hauntingly beautiful music that results, invokes comparisons to fellow female fronted rock bands Evanescence and Lacuna Coil.
Vocalist Kira Leigh started playing the piano at the age of five and began performing as a singer at the age of ten. She attended North Carolina School of the Arts as a music major and moved to New York City shortly after, where she met CT Tamura and began writing the music of Shadows Lie. CT has written and produced tracks for RCA Records, DoughZone Records (Universal), TVT Records, Warner Bros Pictures, Rough Nation Films, CBS, MTV, and VH1. He has also worked as a producer and songwriter for New York-based modern rock projects such as KarmaCycle, Heidi Fly, and Grayzone. Kira and CT joined forces with Frank Grullon, who has extensive experience playing both classical and rock guitar in the South Florida music scene. Frank helped co-form Anodize, which is a band that fuses modern rock with electronica elements. On drums, Marco Britti was brought in to complete the lineup. Marco has extensive touring and recording experience all over the world with artists such as Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez. "Echoes" is now available at: CDFREEDOM.COM/SHADOWSLIE.
