A tryst or two in New York City lures the players of Left Me Bashful together to unfold pop drama. Fronted
by singer/songwriter, Phil Vicario, moments are revealed through passionate melodies and spirited
guitar riffs by Brian Walsdorf. Energetic rhythms from drummer, Grant Braddock (Green Day’s American
Idiot) and driven base lines by Paul Frazier (David Byrne) set the mood, teased with playful charm of
keyboardist, Michael McConnell and violinist Pauline Kim.
Since releasing the first EP, Heart’s In the Right Place (produced by Alan Weatherhead, Sound of Music
Studios), LMB has headlined at the Mercury Lounge as well as playing regularly at NYC’s top music
venues: The Studio at Webster Hall, Pianos, the legendary Bitter End, Arlene’s Grocery, Knitting Factory
and Rockwood Music Hall. In addition to “Sweet Tea” being selected as “Song of the Day” by “Eat, Sleep,
Breathe,” the song “Honeysuckle” will be featured in a new romantic comedy, “Exit Strategy” produced
by Big Boy of Power 106FM. Tunes from this EP were also selected by Indie Weekly, ruKus Radio and
CACH Radio. Most recently, LMB was featured on Beaconpass, BeatCrave, as well as the Jane and Deli
Presented by Sound 311, LMB showcased at Gramercy Theater (Blender) for Live Nation’s “Music You
Want.” LMB has also appeared at the Cape May Singer-Songwriter Festival (2011) as well as the Figment
Festival on Governor’s Island (2010) and “Relay for Life” at Columbia University.
The new EP, Horrible Calls, (mastered by Randy Merrill, Masterdisk) is now available on CDBaby,
Daresay Phil Vicario’s voice slightly resembles the likes of Chris Martin and Eddie Vedder, LMB can be
described as a cross between the Dave Matthews Band and the Decemberists.
