If you can get past the band name...
There are some awesome tunes on this page.
Some music is meant to be epic, cinematic and sweeping; connecting to listeners across a broad spectrum of tastes and lifting them up out of the usual. Elevation is that kind of music; rock-and-roll in the most classic sense of the word. Atlanta's Elevation plays to the panoramic, with a sound vast and timeless. Like the best rock bands, their eyes are firmly fixed above the horizon, not content to stay grounded or fenced in.
Though comparisons seem to be lost on Elevation, hints of U2, Oasis and Buckley bubble to the surface. With Stephen Bailey on drums and Jon Duke on bass, the rhythm section is suitably muscular, laying down the foundation for guitarist Andrew Averso's sonic landscapes. Nathan Smith's voice finds its place in the mix by climbing into the upper ranges, leaving the listener with plenty of memorable melodies to take home. The result is a sound big enough to fill an arena, and raw enough to put a shake in any hipster's step.
Elevation has already caught the ear of insiders and fans alike with high energy sets they've performed across the U.S. Their enigmatic live show routinely mixes a wall of guitars with an appropriate level of theatrical rock flourishes. Recently, Elevation has been busy putting the finishing touches on their debut release. And if advanced notice of internet previewed tracks like "FaceDown" and "Love" are any indication, Elevation may well be dominating the airwaves for years to come.
