About the Artist
In a town where you put up, or get knocked flat on your ass where the homeless are tougher than the football team, you learn early that respect is earned and the future holds little for the weak of heart.
Not a place that you would deem to be an artistic enclave but something must have drifted down the river and deposited the seed of true Ohio rock and roll on the banks of this bleak outpost. The Dead Boys, The Pretenders, even his royal ghastliness Brian Warner have all drank from it's waters and gone on to immortality.
Now a new chapter is about to be written by four young men whose basement forays have turned fantasy into rock hard reality. LIGHTWEIGHT HOLIDAY have emerged to snatch the crowned jewels and become the heirs to Ohio's rock throne.
Polishing the gems of hits to be, Andy, Joey, Justin, and Matt have banded together to create a truly relevant sound that captures rocks past, present, and future. Sounding cohesive and authoritative, LIGHTWEIGHT HOLIDAY are paving a road that others merely hope to tread on.
Drawing on influences as wide ranging as The Undertones, The Small Faces, Teenage Fanclub and Superdrag, the boys always manage to make it appear effortless and incendiary, while maintaining an aura of composure and cool you wish they sold in a neat package. Wait a minute! They do sell that package, and it'll be on your favorite record stores shelf this summer. So pour yourself a Beam and Coke, sit back and wait for the fireworks to begin. These guys are going to trash the 'Nati and all points beyond.
