Flaunting their own brand of power rock, Active Radio adds a nervy edge to guitar grandeur - powerful stuff! The voice of lead singer/guitarist Aaron Barrera captivates the listener with his unique mix of influences, while Seth Orell (drums), Chal Boudreaux (guitar), and Glenn McGregor (bass) lock down a solid foundation that can't be broken. The songs, heartfelt and meaningful, will draw you in and kick you right between the eyes. Formed in early 2001 (although they wouldn't hit the studio for a few years), Active Radio pulled musicians from Texas' top acts together to create this powerhouse group. Aaron (Abra Moore / Ten Percenter), after a fruitful India Records recording session, rapidly began recruiting his ideal rhythm section. He found just that in longtime Ten Percenter bass player, Glenn (Ten Percenter / Abra Moore / 54 Seconds) and drummer, Seth (Screwtape / Ginger Mackenzie / Amy Atchley). The final piece came when Chal (Soak, Dexter Freebish, Ohn) joined up to provide new depth and harmony. Between them, they've performed in halls & arenas across the country in every major market. Since then, Active Radio has attracted the attention of Texas radio, including Austin's 101-X (KROX), and KLBJ (93.7), Corpus Christi's C-101, statewide syndicated radio Texas Shock Syndrome, and BombTrax Records - who picked Active Radio for BombTrax's 2001 compilation release. They have also recently been selected for inclusion on both 101-X's (KROX) and KLBJ's 'best of Austin' CD releases, 101-X Homegrown Live and KLBJ Local Licks Live. Active Radio regularly performs at Austin's premiere clubs with additional monthly bookings into Dallas, Waco, San Antonio, and Houston. The long-overdue CD, Frequency, arrived with a bang and a capacity-crowd release show. Look for the accompanying video for 'Daffodil' (directed by Curtis Saunier) on the Austin Music Network during summer '04.
