3/11/2014 Hell’s Half Mile

This Saturday we’re playing at what is probably the most important show we’ve ever played. Hell’s Half Mile invited us to play their second Indie Music Showcase as the night opener.  Its a great chance to make a good first impression, so we’re really focusing this week on getting everything polished up.  Playing with names like Flint Eastwood, Passalacqua, and Silent Lions. Hopefully they like us.

See you there!

Review: MusicBoxPete.com

“Starting off another week with an all new installment of Artist Spotlight! Today, we head over to Bay City, Michigan and check in with an emerging act in the area by the name of The Distorted Waltz.

Recorded almost live in the studio, with some of the tracks coming from jams, this relaxed and informal approach gives these songs room to breathe, from the laid back funk blues of the opening Poems, the chilled back reggae/ska vibes of Out For Blood, the epic blues ballad of Special and the exciting epic build on the closing Picking Neptune’s Pocket.

Listen to the Mitten Review

Read what Listen to the Mitten has to say about The Distorted Waltz in their review:

The Distorted Waltz‘s eponymous debut  is a bit hard to define. Stylistic rock with a jazz influence? Funk/soul rock with perhaps a little grunge edge? Regardless, this band sounds like a seasoned rock outfit. Their originality is obvious and their confidence is daunting. They catch you with the dirty guitars and spastic rhythms, but sell you on their bluesy bass riffs and a piercing vocal. No matter what way you slice it, The Distorted Waltz is bound to become a powerhouse in the Michigan rock scene.

The tune “Poems” opens the release with gentle guitar and surprisingly serene vocal. It tells the melancholy tale of a gal and her own distorted waltz through life...
