Said the People: Listen to the band

Upon my research endeavors to find local DFW artists to cover, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a fresh, new band from Denton known as Said the People.
The band is fronted by Logan Leavoy, along with Colten Lane on guitar and additional vocals, Rich Reiger on bass and Dalton Walters on drums.
The band cultivates a sound which hearkens back to the early days of indie rock in the late ‘90s to the mid-2000-2010s.
While still being considered guitar-heavy alternative rock, the band manages to achieve a soothing listening experience perfect for anyone looking to simply laze around and listen to something melodic and relaxing.
Their single, “Simple Mind” (which I consider to be my personal favorite), is an excellent example with beautiful, smooth guitars along with Leavoy’s silky and moody vocals Their latest release, “Molly!,” departs slightly and takes on a more bluesy hard rock approach with fuzzy distortion and lengthy guitar solos. If you are hankering to get a taste of Said the People’s more edgy side, I highly recommend you listen to their debut EP “Radio Silent.”
The EP features five songs that range from hard rock distortion from its opening track “For Me” to the moody and emotional tone of “Otherside.”
Although brief, this EP showcases the band’s range thus far as it tends to favor bluesy guitars accompanied with melodic vocals.
The final song I feel is worth addressing from the band would be their first release on Spotify being ”Ready to Go.” This debut single is an emotional journey through a relationship that is breaking up.
The vocals are beautiful and powerful with the band blasting behind. All in all, I give the band a solid A-, leaving them with some leg room for growth. I look forward to any future projects they may have planned.
If this sounds like a band you would enjoy, I highly encourage you to show your local artists some love and give them a listen!
