PIX11's Debra Alfarone spoke to Liza Colby, the front woman of The Liza Colby Band, on the Dunkin Donuts Studio On The Run about her music. Liza says her sound is soul mixed with rock. She has gig this week at the Bowery Electric and a debut album out.
In late 2009, Liza Colby was looking for something different musically. Some friends said "Why don't you just call up the Roth Brothers?" So she did! This band is the result!
The music we make is a combination of influences from the late 60's, early 70', Brit Invasion, with our touch of style.
Liza Colby comes from a musical family. Her dad, John Colby has been a respected composer for the last... 30 years in TV and film, and her mom Beverly sang for The Persuasions, Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, just to name a few.
Adam Roth has played guitar in NYC since the late '70s. Credits include The Del Fuegos, Jim Carrol Band, Denis Leary, & THE ENABLERS. Adam is also the main composer for the TV series "Rescue Me".
C.P.Roth has also been a studio and live performer in NYC since the 70s. A multi instrumentalist who has toured and/or recorded with Ozzy Osbourne, Blessid Union, Suzanne Vega, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, and Lenny Kaye. C.P. currently is the drummer and musical director for Denis Leary's live shows.
Alec Morton holds it all down on bass. Formerly with Raging Slab, and currently with half the bands in NYC who want the bass NOT to suck!
