Choose to Find
Instrumental rock music that appeals to a wide audience is rare to come by anymore. Typically, this kind of music falls into one of two camps: too cerebral to readily access or lacking enough meaningful content to keep it interesting for the listener.
Yet, Choose to Find has seemed to create a unique sound that draws in fans of both pop music and art music. "My songwriting is greatly influenced by film music, so most of the songs are like a soundtrack for my life," says Todd Marston, pianist and songwriter for the group. "Everyone appreciates a good story and all of Choose to Find's songs are based on stories."
Formed in Boston in 2006, Choose to Find is an unconventional rock group in that they use a combination of acoustic piano and electric guitar as the primary melodic voices. Imagine an inventive singer-songwriter band that requires no vocalist. This configuration has helped Choose to Find carve their own spot somewhere in between the post-rock and modern jazz genres. But Choose to Find is a far cry from being a mellow group. Fans of Choose to Find thrive on the high-energy emotional rollercoaster that their songs provide. About their unique sound, Sonic Frontiers wrote, "Choose to Find puts on an aural spectacle unlike any other," and they "go beyond the overdone post-rock trends", while Daily Vault wrote that Choose to Find's music takes the listener on "a vastly entertaining safari into unexplored musical territory."
Having taken five years to finish their new album, Songs Without Words, the band is excited to celebrate its release at The Armory Performance Hall in Somerville on December 6th.
Joining them will be The Invisible Rays, and artist-team Dobot, for an epic evening of instrumental rock music and visual stimulation.
