Many people believe that music has already had its golden age; that the ideas that were fresh and new will be forever repeated. Indeed, it is fact that modern music builds itself almost entirely from musical phrases and norms developed sometime ago. That does not mean however, that all music produced today is destined to repeat the past. The very existence of our flourishing music scene reveals the public's desire for something new. If everyone were truly bored there would be no concerts, no downloads, no merchandise. The music fans of today are desperately calling for something original and exciting. Their cries echo together and ask, "Where has the purity and excitement in music gone?"
Badwater Fire Company might just be the answer to that question. With an overwhelming range of influences, Badwater Fire Company is intent on rebuking the adage "seen that, heard that." By moving from songs such as "Birdseye", a western revenge tune with a touch of progressive flair, onto "The Fuel and The Fire", a musical journey through Americana, funk, jazz, and death metal, Badwater Fire Company is showing the public they can manipulate music to become something new once again.
The devious mind of founder Shane Rossmiller creates complex guitar lines coupled with raw, soulful vocal harmonies. Bassist Michael Pearson, a bass player with the skill and precision of a lead guitarist, and Drummer Matthew Singler, a classically educated drummer with the ability to create something unique and new with every driving beat, complete the wall of sound that is Badwater Fire Company. With a foundation of classic American rock, Badwater can appeal to and attract both elementary rock fans and classic connoisseurs alike. On any given night, Badwater Fire Company can draw a substantial crowd by appealing to a plethora of genres. The name alone is beginning to create and exciting stir in the Northwest. The public is quickly beginning to realize that Badwater is not your average band.
The raw energy and emotion that a Badwater Fire Company live show exudes is truly worth experiencing. Badwater is a classic power trio that covers a wide range of musical tasks. For each member, Badwater is a journey, an opportunity to progress both as a group and individually. It's a doorway to a deeper knowledge of music, its inner workings, its history and its infinite possibilities.
