LOUDLIFE's lyrics dig deep: sacred sex, being buried alive, immortality...these are among the topics. In "May I Print," a sensuous voice asks, "Do you feel my imprint in the center of your soul?/Are you strong enough to let me make you lose control?" And in the urgent and soul-baring "Let Go of the Wheel," a control freak struggles to break free: " Love has set my course, but I still wanna steer it... I need to Let go of the wheel"
A LOUDLIFE live show is so powerful, listeners are left awestruck and spent at the end of the evening. FERRO and SOBEL have performed at innumerable legendary east coast clubs, including The Bottom Line, Fez, CBGB's, Meow Mix, and The Saint. Also on their resume are several charity shows and benefit concerts, raising money and awareness for the Battered Women's Resource Center, and the nation-wide September 11th Concert, raising funds for the children of the WTC victims.
If FERRO's voice sounds familiar, it could be that you've heard her sing on national TV and radio spots, or in live or studio performance with Ritchie Blackmore, Dar Williams, Lesley Gore, Ce Ce Wynans, and others. She wrote the multi-platinum #1 singles "Stand" and "Adonai," and has won honors including a Dove Award, placement in the John Lennon Songwriting contest, a Songwriters Hall Of Fame's Abe Olman Scholarship, and her second USA Songwriting Competition prize. As testament to her songwriting chops, FERRO's songs have been covered by artists ranging from Jessica Simpson to Lesley Gore on her much-touted 2005 "comeback" CD.
SOBEL's guitar-stylings are much sought after by the cream of NYC's up and coming independent artists, and is in demand as a studio session player. His signature lead riffs and interesting time changes are pure hard-rock genius, and he plays a fierce electric guitar adaptation of the Bach Violin Sonatas. SOBEL has also done time as a jazz musician while a student at NY's Mannes School Of Music, speaks numerous languages, including Chinese, spends time practicing the martial art of Wu-Mei, and solves calculus problems for fun.
Together, FERRO and SOBEL have created a musical coupling unlike any other. The combination of fierce vocals and furious guitar will peel the paint off your walls, and quite possibly crack your crystal chandelier.
