Break Through Beautiful
You know what it feels like. Pure blissful contentment juxtaposed with passionate angst and vigor. The idea we call love stretches many fathoms deep in our hearts to bring out the emotions of which our being is created. Break Through Beautiful will take you through the journey of love you have felt and longed for, with masterfully planned yet tumultuous breakdowns, gooseflesh giving vocal melodies, and powerful transitions in and out and over one concept- what love feels like. BE LOVE, the bands doctrine and credo, resounds in us a concept of reminding ourselves why we are here in this life experience, so naturally, their music is carefully crafted around the philosophy that love is complex, necessary, intense, energetic, and heartfelt. With a production of theatrics, positivity, tautness, and precision, you will agree with Break Through Beautiful’s story, and forever be a fan of their message.
Trevor, an extremely noticeable, yet modest and unassuming front man, is anything but inconspicuous on stage. With a talent for hitting a vast range of powerful and evocative pitches, meanwhile digging into you with important and potent lyrics, Trevor will sing to you and make the hair on your neck grow. This comes from his philosophy of being a spiritually centered, selfless and genuine individual and transferring those qualities into his performance, and to the significance of his words. Trevor was inspired by years of hearing his mother sing to him when he was a child and figured his talent was hiding inside. After years of tireless and involved focus with his music, he has developed into a truly amazing vocalist, songwriter and engineer.
Lee will jump out of the page at you. With his charismatic persona and pleasant confidence, he plays not only the tastiest of bass lines for the part, but ignites the stage with energy. Also being the emotional charge of the band, Lee takes a strong lead in helping morale be abundant with positive spirits, levity and seriousness. When you’re with Lee you realize his intent on doing the right thing, being straight forward and open, and seeking to understand how anything can improve. His steadfast, fat bass lines compliment perfectly the structure of the music, making them complete. You feel the confidence in the music with his comfort on the stage and reliable execution, and you can truly feel from him- he loves what he is doing.
Josh is the glue. What is the most crucial part is the fact he enjoys so much being the glue. With a meticulous nature, Josh manages to keep the band in stunningly tight, metronomic time while locking down some of the biggest, seemingly effortless pocket drumming you will hear in a rock band. With utmost power in his stroke and use of space and rhythmic cadence, Josh’s style will reel you into the songs with their transitioning so seamless, you take the ride and get let off before you realized you were on it. Having built his own drums and engineering a lighting/sound mix with backtracks for the band, you will always see Josh’s hands into something, as he is ultimately resourceful. He takes pride in building up the band and their presence, making it sound and look as good as possible at all times.
Adrian’s guitar playing is concise, well thought, inspiring and authoritative. The lead guitar pieces he lays down are melodic, storytelling and epic, bringing you the chords that pull your heart out and kiss it the same time. He is a jovial and true individual who likes to get down in life and throw down in his music. Being as good as he is at his craft, Adrian makes guitar playing look like second nature, and has been inspired by a myriad of music through his time, which reflects in his style. His modesty is in his ability to fill the music up with not too much and not too little. He knows what is just right, and plays it perfectly too, meanwhile rocking out with classic theatrics we all love to see when people love playing their music.
Brian's guitar playing is only surpassed by his wealth of music industry knowledge. As a seasoned touring musician; having played in a plethora of established acts over the years, in conjunction with founding/operating the elusive rock zine, Alternative Revolt Magazine (www.altrevolt.com - a nationally known music publication that caters to both major and indie artists), Brian brings a whole new level of maturity and experience to the BTB table. Having produced multiple albums of differing genres over the years and hitting the live stage time and time again, Brian slides easily into the BTB mix with his tight multilevel playability and proven stage presence. As the fifth and final addition to the band, there is no doubt that he is the ultimate and final puzzle piece needed to bring the success of Break Through Beautiful full-circle.
