There are five bands, one dj and one producer called Silver. 1) SILVER is a collaboration of three Raleigh musicians that began in the fall of 2008. Patrick, Brent and John were all born and raised in the fine state of North Carolina and that southern influence carries through in much of the songwriting. Heavily affected by a ?British? rock/pop sound, SILVER has carefully crafted melodies that are both unique all the while holding firmly to their region and place.

SILVER's debut EP +/- finds a young band in their mid twenties trying to balance honest melodies about the good and the bad, the darkness and the light. +/- gently nods to bands such as Radiohead, Kings of Leon, U2 and Muse with delayed guitars, swirling synthesizers and organs and steady pounding rhythms. A firmly established power trio, SILVER is garnering attention and support throughout the southeast.
