For modern rock troupe Lights Resolve, destruction is creation. If the trio's former group, Last Week, hadn't disbanded after the singer left to pursue a solo career, singer/guitarist/keyboardist Matt Reich might have never discovered he could sing. Really sing.
"I always sang backup. It never even occurred to me then to try," he says.
In 2006, after auditioning new singers and coming up short, Reich spent weeks practicing and taking voice lessons, ultimately taking over as the lead singer. Since then, the New York-based group, which also consists of drummer Neal Saini and bassist Luke Daniels, has found an audience on Smart Punk and Purevolume and is averaging 6,000 spins per day on MySpace.
