This band weaves its bluesy and melodic southern-flavoured sound through the contribution and collaboration of its members: Blake Ruelens (lead singer & guitar), Josh Drazilov (lead guitar), Jennifer Sarsfield (drums), Dave Harris (bass), each of them bringing their own style and influence to this interesting music project.
The band’s name is no coincidence: it’s a celebration of the indie, emerging music of the 80s, but also of radio as a medium, of the freedom of expression and of the different layers that create LOTD ’s sound.
Ready to drop their new EP Broadcast , these four talented artists from Toronto promise their fans intense, eclectic and meaningful songs with a mixed vibe that spans from rock to blues to grunge with a vintage taste of early radio broadcasting and emergency transmissions.
With influences such as Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rolling Stones, Rival Sons, QOTSA and Pearl Jam to name a few, Left on the Dial will soon deliver to the public not only a ‘bunch of very good songs’, but something more, something that highlights the complex times we are facing now...and they do this with a soul all their own:
“It’s about love, humanity, community and connection. It’s about honesty, not perfection”. Josh Drazilov
The album as a whole is a great representation of what LOTD has to offer. Overall, it takes listeners on a journey through some pretty tough topics, told through the musical stylings of blues, rock and grunge with an overall flavour of early radio broadcasting and emergency transmissions.
Very diverse in its sound but tied together by common themes and underlying influences.
Listeners will step back into the past of radio broadcast as they are taken through a journey of powerful topics and powerful music.
