Every now and then you come across a band that has a potential to be greater than what they seem to be. A band with a lot of talent , a lot of charisma , and a singer with a beauty that would make you tremble, Who am I referring to? I am referring to the Las Vegas based band , ALMOST AWAKE. This band is fronted by 16 year old, Vick Liano. her voice literally soothes your ears upon listening. Once the instruments are added in, it is a purely orgasmic feeling due to the awesome talent that these young musicians have.

Album Release

  1. The Intruder
  2. Carry Me
  3. Searching
  4. Paradise

Bonus Track (Album Only)- Ocean Eyes

Band Members Bio

Vick Liano

16 years old I’ve been playing music since I was in the womb. My parents are the CEO’s of the United States so they paid for all my voice lessons and songwriting classes and I have a giant house in Summerlin. I have 63 dogs and two pet kangaroos. I have a giant waterfall pool that flows straight through the state of California to the Pacific Ocean. I also own the pacific ocean. I have 13 closets and 2 shoe closets and I own 7 acoustic guitars, 8 electric guitars, 4 bass guitars, 9 keyboards, 12 drum-sets, 3 xylophones, 5 saxophones. and an oboe, and I have a recording studio in my 800 acre backyard. I’ve been home-schooled since pre-k, I’m an only child, and I basically run everything in my sight. I’m totally kidding- I’m actually kinda poor and I just really love to sing.

Been playing guitar since I was about eight; all I ever really wanted to do. Love Satriani, Gilbert, Hendrix, Santana. Got to hang and jam with Satch and Gilbert last year onstage. Definite highlight! Love all kinds of music but really love my band.

Tommy Cochran

 I love to play bass. My influences include Ean Evans, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten.

Gabe Conover

Been playing drums for 3 years. Drum influences are Tony Royster Jr, Jeff Campitelli, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Thomas Pridgen. Band influences are Paramore, 30 Seconds to Mars, Switchfoot, Pvris, and the Foo Fighters. Glad to be surrounded by such a great group of people. Wouldn’t trade this band for anything.

Final Thoughts

After listening to the album over and over again, I began to think about how awesome it would have been if I was 16 years old and in an awesome band that got publicity through a site like ours. I would have loved an opportunity like this. That’s one of the main reasons I contacted these kids. I am a former Las Vegas Resident and I would have loved to get to see these kids perform and kickass on stage. I want these young musicians to keep pursuing their dreams and never take no for an answer. Their will be hard times and their will be awesome times, you are a band so stick together through the rough times and in the end will be an awesome experience in your life.

So EVERYONE check out this band and show them some support by buying their album!
