ROZICH AND BRAILSFORD

Mich Rozich and Gavin Brailsford met at a local community college back in 1981 when Mike was looking for a bass player to join his band at that time. Gavin fit perfectly even though his strong music swayed towards jazz and fusion rock. Mike, on the other hand, leaned toward hard rock and progress rock as he was infatuated with artist such as Queensryche, Dream Theater, Yes and of course, Rush. Both introduced each other to their style of music and began thus began the merging of two into one fused cell. Both Mike and Gavin stuck to their guns and didn’t budge from their unique sound they developed together. Currently Gavin lives in Thailand and works as a missionary while Mike is in Michigan. They communicate often and record remotely. Each plans to visit the other as their friendship and common bond will ways play a part in their lives.

Rozich and Brailsford are proud to introduce three singles to the industry: “Ian Time” - Mike and Gavin jammed with a drummer, Tim, who has a son named Ian. The work was coming along very well until Tim’s work demanded him to move his family. As a homage to their friendship and work relationship, Mike and Gavin named their first professionally recorded song after the two. This song has a soft introduction which leads to a strong lyrical guitar. This was nice to hear, allowing the guitar to replace vocals. Along with other lead electronic sounds, this song has a wonderful sense of wonder to it. Instrumentals work like books which make the imagination create such images. Nicely done.

“When One Turns To Two” is described as a musical encounter of the heartache and frustration that develops during a divorce. Again a gradual buildup with dramatic deep electronic sounds that seem to represent the heart and soul. Sad, thought provoking and absolute. Another perfect composition. “The Business” was developed by Mike’s longing to develop a riff that has a dramatic flair . Listen to that heart beat, listen to that blood run through the veins. Suspenseful, electric, and yes, those riffs were there in full force.

Rozich and Brailsford create movies with their music. Open your ears and let your guard down for this duo. Their music is what is needed in the entertainment industry.

Brief history of the band:

Rozich and Brailsford are comprised of Mike Rozich and Gavin Brailsford. The two met at a local community college during 1981 when Mike was looking for a bass player to join his band at the time, playing local high school parties and the like. Gavin fit like a glove, although, his musical interests and background had a strong leaning toward jazz and fusion rock. Mike’s interest had always been in the hard rock, progressive rock as he was infatuated with artists such as Queensryche, Dream Theater, Yes and of course, Rush. Gavin introduced artists such as Pat Metheny, Brand X, Al Dimeola and Jean Luc Ponty to Mike and their writing style has informed influences from both genres.

Neither Mike nor Gavin were interested in covers or playing in covers bands which seemed on one hand to alienate them from other players in the community. They stuck to their guns and developed a style unique on to their own. Currently, Gavin lives in Thailand where he lives and works as a missionary; Mike is in Michigan and they communicate regularly, record remotely and plan to visit regularly and develop their lifelong friendship and bond.

Singles:

One of the songs is called “Ian Time”. Mike and Gavin jammed with a drummer, Tim, who has a son named Ian. The work was coming along very well until Tim’s work demanded him to move his family to Wisconsin, from Michigan. As a homage to their friendship and work together, Mike and Gavin named their first professionally recorded song after the two. Ian is his sons first name, Tim was the drummer; they asked themselves, “well, what does a drummer do: keeps time”. At that point, they decided that was a good name for the song: Ian Time. Another single; “When One Turns To Two”; is a musical encounter of the heartache and frustration that develops during a divorce as Gavin has experienced it. The song is very deeply moving and one is delivered to a place that is familiar. The song draws heavily from a jazzier side of their respective influences.

Another single: “The Business” was developed by way of Mikes longing to develop a riff that has a dramatic flair while at the same time fostering a straight forward, yet intricate groove. When Mike and his wife pet their cat, it is often referred to as giving “the business”.

These songs appear to represent Rozich and Brailsfords technical songwriting skill as well as creating an atmosphere that is both evocative and thought provoking.
