With the current hit “You and Me” topping the radio charts, as “Hanging By A Moment” did in 2001, Lifehouse has been crowned bonafide rock/pop icons. The trio brings its infectious sound to the L.A. County Fair Saturday, Sept. 10, as the group entertains during the End of Summer Concert Series, presented by Toyota.
Known for the popular radio hit “Hanging By A Moment,” a single that won most played radio track of the year in 2001, the group recently released a self-titled album, its third. Consisting of singer-songwriter-guitarist Jason Wade, drummer Rick Woolstenhulme and bassist-singer Bryce Soderberg, the band’s sound has been described as pop and rock with indelible melodies, stacked harmonies, layered strings, Wurlitzer, B3 and vibes.
When it first started, the band was able to set itself apart from other bands such as Live and Matchbox 20. Dreamworks noticed its talent and signed them to its label, helping the band produce its first album No Name Face. Equipped with talent and a wide fan base, the band has continued to produce albums and provide listeners with great songs.
