How would you describe your music?

The Unassisted are a 3 piece band from Manchester, the founding member of the band is Jason. His music history dates back many years and he has written many songs for various bands he's previously played in, in the past decade. His musical influences are wide and varied and include Jimi Hendrix and bluesy styles. Lenny Kravitz, The Verve, Weller Black Rebel Motorcycle club, Led ZEP and Pink Floyd are what floats his boat. The Bassist, Mark has a ecletic taste in music from Jamiroquai, Faithless, Swedish House Mafia and most kinds of House music to Muse, Stereophonics, Kravitz, Foo Fighters, The Killers and The Manics. Chris's influences range from New Order, Smiths, Stone Roses, Placebo, Boxer Rebellion and Brit Funk ( Level 42) 

What does music mean to you?

Music to us a means so many different things. Its a release of ideas and inspiration, a freedom to do something different from the norm. We're slightly unique in the fact we just like operating as a 3 piece group and somehow we get quite a big sound. We have so many ideas coming through all the time for videos and our music we're always busy in the studio. But mostly we're great mates and always open to ideas and suggestions, no band politics going on here!!  The style we like to think we reside in is Vintage indie alternative Rock, Its a new Genre... You heard it here first!!

What have you released?

The music released so far is on Sound Cloud, Reverbnation, and Band camp.

Check out this amazing video The Unassisted recorded to thank the bloggers which have blogged about them.
I personally think that's the coolest thing a band could do for us bloggers, ever!

Thank you Jason, Mark and Chris for visiting the house in the sand, it was a pleasure having you!

I don't know about you but I'm definitely going to listen to these great guys. :)
And you should, too!
