'Inq, one of San Joses most promising bands.' Brad Kava, San Jose Mercury News Inq brings a slug of truth from the San Francisco Bay Area, stirring up dust and offering the rock n roll world something unexpected. The power-quartet draws from a deep pool of influences including classics such as David Bowie, Jane's Addiction, Jeff Buckley, Jimi Hendrix and Verve. Inq emits an original sound that has been described as Alternative Rock with a side of 70s Glam. Some names that come up often when describing INQs sound are Smashing Pumpkins, Cheap Trick, The Cars, Queens of the Stone Age and Boston. Eclectic, melodic and dynamic, Inq follows the tradition of bands that cut with confidence and kill with conviction, leaving their mark on all that come within listening range. Their rousing debut Life Assurance, self-released on Aug. 2nd 2005, combines aural sophistication, raw power, and simple beauty with a rock and roll heart. Produced and recorded by Jerry Ososkie in San Jose, CA in 2004 and 2005; Life Assurance matured from demos that Inq recorded on it's own in late 2003/early 2004. Understanding the importance of having a professional grade album while recognizing the saturation of the music market with fad bands, Inq decided not to wait around to be noticed. They took the task of creating Life Assurance for themselves and never looked back. The four musicians on the team, veterans of the Bay Area music scene, truly exemplify a lust for life. In Inq and other bands, they have dedicated themselves to recording and performing nationwide. As Inq, they have recorded and released a full-length CD, headlined a number of Bay Area clubs and have supported the majors. The group comes together live to deliver an expressive, heavy experience, injected with plenty of entertaining rock value. Music is communication and Inq wants to talk to you, be with you, listen to you, understand you, and get you off.
