CROSS-POLLINATION CCXCIX - TUES AUG 31ST - 7:30-10 PM
CHRIS CUBETA
CASEY SHEA

Chris Cubeta and The Liars Club is a brash, Americana rock band from Brooklyn led by compelling and charismatic frontman Chris Cubeta. Cubeta is a relentless songwriter whose lyrics combine nuance-soaked imagery with incisive observations. The band's sound is equally eclectic, combining the wispy, sensitivity of the singer/songwriter with the unbridled thrill of rock and roll.

The Liars Club's live show is bolstered by a high-octane band - Jeff Berner on guitars, Marc Capaldo on drums and John Passineau on bass. Each brings his own flair to a show that is a dynamic blend of passionate, guitar-infused energy and down-home, rootsy melancholy. Cubeta presides over every gig with the subtle and sure hand of a seasoned performer, deftly alternating between wowing the crowd with his guitar and telling the silhouetted stories of the unsung.

"This Brooklyn singer/songwriter, packs soul, punch and feeling mixed with chords so catchy and words so true that you can't help but fall under his power." -- Dan Berkman, The Deli Magazine

Casey Shea is an artist operating at the very top of his game and, by comprising the very best elements of Lennon, Davies and Stills, has captured a sound long since past. Although gloriously retrospective, Shea injects his own sublime, colourful use of language which, in turn, propels his songs to a far higher plain. / Joel Crane, NME

Casey's stage persona is equal parts James Brown, Elvis Presley, and Bono, but then comes the surprise, etched in cursive on the head of a pin. Listen closely, and the songs are beautiful heartfelt, and wrenching. / MTVNews.com

Sublime combination of wry, insightful lyrics and simply perfect songcraft. / CMJ

Full of charm, sophistication, and straight up fucking rock and roll, listening to Casey Shea might make you want to kick down your cubicle, leave your day job, and start a revolution. / The Robot Soul

In June, 2010, he released "Love Is Here To Stay", the full band follow up to his self recorded solo debut, "Take The Bite." He has since returned to the studio with the band for his third full length album to be released on Family Records in 2011. For more information, visit caseysheamusic.com.
