Broken Iris is a Sacramento based band that originally formed in 2005. The addition of Steve Avery (formerly of Die Trying) and Danny Cocke (formerly of Simplistic) in 2006, influenced the bands musical style towards its current genre of ambient rock.
Adam Roths powerful vocals are backed by a live cello (Alex Ashton), keyboard (David Christensen), guitar (Danny Cocke) bass (Steve Avery) and drums (Chris Brawley), blending together to create a sound that is both dark in tone, yet lyrically powerful.
Their debut CD "The Eyes of Tomorrow," (based on a story written by former guitarist Tony Verdi) was released in September 2007, and guides listeners through a painful story of love and loss. Broken Iris has been gaining momentum and building a faithful following at their live shows, proving that their musical talents are not limited to the recording studio.
Broken Iris is currently planning their 2008 tour. …. Synthesis Magazine said, "After winning a highly publicized contest on KWOD 106.5, a local band called "Broken Iris" was the opener of the day for Dave Mathews Band.
The Sacramento-based band played an all-too-short set, including the song that won the vote, Beautiful Girl, on the side stage to a large, enthusiastic crowd. In addition to the bass, piano, and guitar, they have a strong drummer, a cellist and an awesome lead vocals.
Their lyrics are deep, they harmonize astonishingly well and their style is likely to fall under something like soft, emotional rock. Whatever it is, it works, and they are definitely a band to watch.
