Primitive Bay Area hard rock band starring Taiwanese rocker Patrick Lew, Madeline Lew and friends. Influenced by the anthemic and melodic American hard rock from the 80`s and 90`s. More than just a garage band from San Francisco, we plan to conquer the airwaves in a tiny messed up way.
In some ways we are a virtual rock band. In other ways, we`re a two person band most of the time.
Band Bio & Formation Story
I`m always trying my best to get better when recording and when it comes to playing the guitar. I always use social media to put my music and every band I played guitar and sang in out there. I`ve received a few tiny achievements with music. I also am endorsed by Antennas Direct, a TV antenna maker based in St. Louis, MO. A lot of my earlier work was more Garage Punk, very lo-fi and raw kind of stuff. Now these days, I attempt to blend a fusion of 80`s hard rock, 90`s grunge and punk within my music. I am influenced by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Mother Love Bone, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Blink 182, Def Leppard, The White Stripes, Tesla, Silverchair, Oasis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, John Lennon and Aerosmith.
Our music career can be summed like this: Patrick started out as a fan of rock music and then he went out and bought a guitar and amp. Then he began playing music with a few friends in a garage band. Making a bunch of random sh*** and recording some actually decent songs on a computer. And because everything is all digital now, we put ourselves out there on the Internet. If they were lucky and have it all together...They would get to play a show at a bar/club here in the Bay Area.
Basically, we`re a garage band making some ratchet noise here in San Francisco. But with the power of social-media, there`s people from Hong Kong all the way to Latin America who listened to us on Spotify.
Professional Performance Experience
I am mainly a musician who does home recording and puts myself out there on social-media. I also sell my material I`ve recorded on iTunes and Spotify to supplement my income along with my regular job. But I have had some experience with live performing. It might have been intermittent, but I`ve developed confidence and passion for playing music that I feel I can present an amazing punk rock live performance onstage.
To increase my audience, put myself out there and to make music my career professionally where I don`t have to work a day job ever again. I don`t want to become rich doing music, but if I can make $50,000 a year for playing and recording. I`d be very satisfied with how everything turned out in the end. But most importantly, I care about making a difference in society and make sure I live my life honestly with passion and to continue being an inspiration to close friends and fans.
I have donated some of my hard earned money to various charities such as cancer research, suicide prevention and Blue Cross relief for victims of natural disasters. Because of my endorsement with Antennas Direct, I also done a local event giving away 300 free TV antennas to underserved communities in Chinatown in San Francisco. Some of this can be documented on Antennas Direct`s social-media sites and I was also on television doing an interview for the event. Although it wasn`t related to music.
