Marvelous Liars is a rock power-trio from New London, CT. Members include guitarist/singer Nicholas Johns, drummer Shane O'Connell, and bassist Nick Cancelmo. In just over two years they've hit the regional circuit hard, playing NYC, Rhode Island, Boston and many Connecticut venues including New London's "I Am Fest". In March 2015 they released their debut full-length album, "Another Castaway", with high praise from both fans and critics alike.
"Clustered with power chords, and stand-on-the-dance-floor-and-scream-along choruses, the tunes comprise a brisk blast of timeless rock."
"They embrace various rock influences and render smokey riffs that deliver fun 'n' roll with a modern twist"- Idioteq
In June 2016, the band won three Whalie Awards (Connecticut's regional Grammyesque awards), including Best Rock Act, Best Rock Song and Indie/Rock Album of the Year. In addition to consistent regional touring, the band recently wrapped up their sophomore full-length album, which was tracked on the same Neve mixing console that captured Nirvana's In Utero, John Lennon's Double Fantasy, and AC/DC's Back in Black. The band bleeds rock and roll, but hints of blues and punk are blended into the equation too. Marvelous Liars influences include old Weezer, Queens of the Stone Age, The Beatles and many more. Their new full-length album will be released by the Telegraph Recording Company July, 21 2017.
