Home / Biography / Silvertide



It isn’t unusual for the post-baby boomer rock-band to involve some baby boomer affects, either direct or indirect. For instance, a post-grunge clothing might state Creed, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Live as affects but likewise have traces of Led Zeppelin or the Beatles in its audio. However the post-baby boomers who comprise Silvertide aren’t substitute rockers who’ve some baby boomer affects occasionally — they’re a post-boomer music group with a completely retro hard rock and roll sound that’s firmly planted within the ’70s and ’80s. The Philadelphia occupants’ bluesy, gritty, riff-driven tracks are without alterna-rock affects; their set of affects contains Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, the Encounters, Guns N’ Roses, the Who, as well as the Moving Stones, amongst others. And ironically, Silvertide’s people weren’t even created when Zeppelin (which split up in 1980) was still collectively. Silvertide was shaped in January 2001 in northeast Philly, a seriously working-class area that’s to Philadelphia what Queens and Brooklyn are to NY. Initially, Silvertide (that was originally known as Vertigo) acquired four associates: lead vocalist Walt Lafty, business lead guitarist Nick Perri, tempo guitarist Tag Melchiorre (who also has banjo as well as the Indian sitar), and drummer Kevin Frank (that has cited the Who’s Keith Moon as a significant impact). When bassist Brian Weaver was put into the lineup, Silvertide officially acquired five associates. The youthful rockers have been jamming and rehearsing within the basement for many months if they began performing reside in Philly night clubs, and listeners had been shocked to listen to several 21st century teens sounding like that they had simply stepped from the ’70s or ’80s — actually, the majority of Silvertide’s people had been still in senior high school and weren’t outdated more than enough to vote once the music group was shaped. And because their sound was therefore unapologetically vintage, they sensed like musical outcasts in senior high school. When various other northeast Philly teenagers were hearing Korn, Limp Bizkit, Eminem, and Jay-Z, Silvertide’s people had been admiring the Rolling Rocks, the Who, Peter Frampton, Jimi Hendrix, as well as the Encounters. When additional high-school students had been adoring Britney Spears, *NSYNC, as well as the Backstreet Males, Lafty had been affected by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Weapons N’ Roses’ Axl Rose, and Led Zeppelin’s Robert Herb — and Lafty, ironically, is usually even more youthful than Tyler’s child, Liv Tyler. If the users of Silvertide had been musical outsiders in senior high school, they weren’t outsiders in Philly rock and roll night clubs — by enough time 2001 finished, Silvertide was developing a healthful hype around the city’s rock and roll scene. As well as the hype was so solid that Silvertide finished up starting for Aerosmith when Steven Tyler and close friends performed in Philly throughout a nationwide tour. That regional hype resulted in a cope with veteran music sector mogul Clive Davis’ J Information, which agreed upon the music group and released its debut EP, American Surplus, in 2002. The next summer, Silvertide became a member of maker Oliver Leiber (Paula Abdul, The Corrs) in LA to begin documenting their studio room full-length debut. After previewing their tunes on the springtime tour with Tantric and Showdown, Silvertide released Show & Inform in early June 2004.
