Product Description

SafetySuit is an extraordinarily talented, musically confident young band from Nashville that inspires. Their songs capture the grandeur and depth of U2, with an imaginative pop sensibility at its core and a dizzying wall of guitars as its backdrop. Life Left to Go, is unabashedly catchy. It feels like that album that'll live in your car stereo for months on end. But the title, like the band's name, has its own story. 'It's named after our last song on the record, which is our least commercial song ever,' admits Brown. 'It chronicles the thoughts of someone who wants to end their life. Then it presents the counter of that, the person begging them to stay. It's a song to let people know that, no matter what, somebody notices them, that someone cares.'

About the Artist

Anything--and everything--about SAFETYSUIT can be summed up by the band's name. "I think the key word is `safety,'" explains singer/guitarist Doug Brown. "The four of us in the band have been friends forever. We feel comfortable around each other. We're in a safe environment...and that makes us feel free to be who we are. And, if we can inspire that moment or that feeling in our fans, we've succeeded." Which begins the story of SAFETYSUIT, an extraordinarily talented, musically confident young band that does, in fact, inspire. Their songs capture the grandeur and depth of U2, with an imaginative pop sensibility at its core and a dizzying wall of guitars as its backdrop. "It's not rocket science," says Brown. "Quintessential good melody and good lyrics, that's what makes a song." Oddly, the band's influences share very little with the group's final sound. "Hey, I like Rob Thomas - the way he twists a melody has always caught my ear. I grew up on the Allman Brothers and the Beatles. I like a lot of modern rock. And the Eagles - you won't hear that in our music, but there's a band that really showed me what a group of people can accomplish musically." When Brown speaks, it's with assurance, as if he knows what he's doing and where he's going. It's a feeling that began in, of all places, Tulsa. Here, before there was a SAFETYSUIT, there was Crew. And this early incarnation of the group was, indeed, friends. Their journey started the moment Doug, drummer Tate Cunningham and bassist Jeremy Henshaw (along with two other guys; guitarist Dave Garofolo joined a little later) entered a local Battle of the Bands contest at the last minute...and won. It continued throughout the next year, as Crew became a local phenomenon, drawing up to1000 people per night on the local circuit. But to grow as a band, the band needed a new direction. "We wanted to move, and move to one of the three major music hubs," remembers Brown. The group wanted space to think, to grow and, most importantly, to focus. With that in mind, the usual rock music meccas (Los Angeles and New York) gave way to Nashville. Despite the new locale, the lack of a local fanbase, no deal and no manager, the group assembled in Tennessee and obsessively began to rehearse. After a chance meeting, they recorded an EP with Greg Archilla (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul, Buckcherry) in the summer of 2005. "When we were done with that, we felt we were as ready to play as ever," says Brown.

So the gigs began - at nice places, dives, theaters, clubs, wherever, often 2-3 times a week. And, as expected by the band, the fanbase grew. Labels started sniffing around. And the group discovered what would become its second home, a local haunt called 12th and Porter, where the group began a residency. "Actually, the best show we ever did was at 12th and Porter, and it was the night Universal showed up," says Brown. "Everyone brought everyone that night. Twenty minutes before the show, somebody came into the green room and announced there was a line around the block. All I remember is ...I walked out on stage that night, the lights went up, I saw the crowd...and the whole thing was a blur afterwards. I was in a zone the entire time. When the last note of the last song hit, I sort of woke up. It was ...amazing." With a Universal deal in hand, the band met with a number of big-name producers, before ultimately deciding to stick with Archilla ("We're stubborn," says Brown. "We like Greg. He doesn't mess around, he tells it like it is...and he plays golf. So that's awesome.") The final result, Life Left to Go, is unabashedly catchy. It feels like that album that'll live in your car stereo for months on end. But the title, like the band's name, has its own story. "It's named after our last song on the record, which is our least commercial song ever," admits Brown. "It chronicles the thoughts of someone who wants to end their life. Then it presents the counter of that, the person begging them to stay. It's a song to let people know that, no matter what, somebody notices them, that someone cares. "That song is a big deal for us," Brown continues, then pauses. "I don't want to wave any sort of flag, but the focus on music is always so ego-centric. We wanted to flip that. I wanted this to be a song about the artist giving for a change." It's a feeling you'll hopefully discover when SAFETYSUIT heads out of Nashville this spring and hits the road. As Brown promises, anyone who comes to their show should feel better afterwards than before they came in. As is with their music, it's an inspiring thought.

Getting this out of the way up front, "Find a Way" is an absolute gem of a song. IMO, this song by itself is worth the price of the album. You'd be forgiven for putting it on repeat and forgetting the other songs existed.

That said, the entire album is wonderful. There is no filler music here and you can very easily listen to the whole album straight through without skipping anything or becoming annoyed. The sound of this album is what I would describe as "warm, feel good rock". It's not headbanging "I hate life" music and it's not overly emotional, sappy music either. It's the type of warm, confident, subdued music you can listen to for extended periods while letting the time slip away. Really a great album.

I am so impressed with this album. I have such an eclectic taste in music that I sometimes neglect to seek out new music and I am SO glad that I stumbled across this band. Every song on this cd is emotionally stirring and their voices and instrumentals are gorgeous. A true work of art in our modern age. I could not be happier with this cd. :o)

It is a rare occasion when I get an album and like all the songs. This is one such occasion. This band is one of my favorite and this album is a great representation of what they bring to the table: smooth vocals and great lyrics - backed up by honest, talented rock musicians. It is refreshing to be able to put on music that doesn't make you wince because of content.

Their follow up album (released earlier this year) "These Times" is also very good. If you are looking for an up and coming band or something new to listen to - look no further. If you have the chance to see them live I highly recommend it.

I initially bought this album because of the good reviews on amazon. When i first listened to it, i thought it was nice but not particularly great in the way i expected it to be. But after i listened to it once again and the emotions and beauty in the songs started to come out. So i listened to it once more, and it was EVEN BETTER.

Now i listen to the album at least once a day. The music is just beautiful, i mean, Wow! These guys can really sing their hearts out. In every song, you can feel the emotions, the heartbreak, the love, and every other feeling that has gone into it. The lyrics aren't shallow or juvenile or vulgar like alot of rock bands, it's really about the deep feelings, happiness, and sometimes pain that we feel.

It's about being human, not about partying or screwing girls or anything like that. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who likes rock. My favorite songs are "Stay", a ballad about, well, making someone stay, and "Annie", a song about a girl thats beautiful on the inside more than the outside, and "Life Left To Go", a song about someone trying to convince a person who wants to suicide that there's still a worthwhile life left to live, "Gone Away", about the contemplative thoughts of someone left behind.

I first heard the song STAY when it was first out on VH1'S to 20 countdown. I decided to buy their album ven though I didn't really hear much from the after.

So I finally got a listen to the album a few weeks ago and must say that it is good. I have a problem with the fact that a lot of the songs sound the same. I like most of the songs but I just don't feel it. I don't think the lead singer is exercising his vocals in many different ways, its like he only sings two ways (shouting or softly humming).

I just think they should experiment with some new sounds. I also don't think that much is seperating this band from all other bands out there. They sound like bands that I have heard before. But the album is solid I supose.

I fell in love with the sound of this band on "Pandora" when I had a listing for "Lifehouse" as a station. After hearing two songs on "Pandora" I was hooked and love every song on this CD. "Find A Way" is by far my favorite on the CD. Enjoy!
