In their song "The Journey" ("To Speak, To Love, To Listen" 2007), Chris Pearson of Sleeperstar shouts to the heavens, "If I said that I was wrong, and if I wrote you this song would it bring you back to me?" Ironically enough, it is this question that forms thestatement for this alt rock band out of Dallas, TX. Their music seeks to inspire and to make the audience keenly feel the pleading vocals, the "U2-meets-Third Eye Blind" guitar work, and sentimental arrangements of every song. Their members are as multifaceted as their music. Chris Pearson (lead vocals) plays piano, acoustic guitar, and the occasional Les Paul if the roof needs that one, final push to fly off the building. Lead guitarist Nick Box plays with a stylish exactness from his days as a classically trained pianist while effectively contributing vocal harmonies. Pianist Jake Lester also adds his own background vocals and is quick to fill out songs with a variety of effects, organs, and orchestral patches. Shaun Menary (drums) often keeps time with an eclectic clar- ity but also knows when to use a good old 4-on-the-floor. Brandon Rosas (bass) brings an experienced and meticulously-fashioned low-end to their sound which serves as a versatile glue for every song.
