About Voxhaul Broadcast
We are often told to make the most of each day, but VOXHAUL BROADCAST took this mantra to the extreme. Originally from Orange County, CA, the quartet recorded and mixed their 2008 debut EP Rotten Apples live. In one day. The result harnessed a sound that reflects a range of influences from James Brown and Al Green to The Beatles and Donovan.
VB followed up Rotten Apples with a promo-only EP, Fact Fiction and Turquoise in 2009 and after a move to Silver Lake, VOXHAUL BROADCAST are now the fastest rising band in LA. They currently have 6 songs in rotation on US & UK radio and will be touring all summer to build steam for the release of their appropriately titled upcoming debut full-length, Timing Is Everything. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Tom Biller (Silver Sun Pickups, Seawolf, Liars) with additional production from Chris Thorne (Blind Melon), Timing Is Everything showcases a growth in songwriting and pristine production while still holding on to the band’s trademark blend of r&b, rock and soul.
LA Times Magazine’s June 2010 “Music Issue” recently picked Voxhaul Broadcast as one of LA’s ‘ ‘Best New Indie Bands by ultimate tastemaker Nic Harcourt. Nic was the first to put VB on air on his Sunday KCRW show, and over the past six months has kept eight different tracks in rotation. In July 2010, VOXHAUL BROADCAST was featured on KCRW’s influential radio program “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” a program recognized nationally as a primary outlet for promoting a wide range of music ahead of the curve.
Jason Bentley, KCRW Music Director and host of “Morning Becomes Eclectic” said of the appearance, “We are all very excited about this up and coming local band. The audience response to their performance on ‘Morning Becomes Eclectic’ has been outstanding. It’s a rare and special pleasure to be part of a formative moment in a band’s career. We’ve been playing their various EPs and we’re confident that whatever sound and style they pursue on their debut full length will bring them success.”
VOXHAUL BROADCAST tunes are also making their way across the pond, spending 7 weeks on the UK’s NME Radio playlist with the track “Fact or Fiction” at the end of 2009. Chris Martin from NME Radio declared, “I f***ing love this track (‘Fact or Fiction’) by Voxhaul Broadcast. Someone sign them!”
VOXHAUL BROADCAST has showcased at SXSW, CMJ, Sundance, Noisepop Pop Fest in San Francisco, been featured on DAYTROTTER (w/ a second session booked for later this summer) and won the title of ‘Best Indie Band’ at Milwaukee’s Summerfest. They recently headlined KCRW’s “I LIKE TO ROCK” showcase at the Hammer Museum in LA and have been confirmed as an early-announced artist for FILTER Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival in October.
