Formed in 2002, Barefaced Liar is an amalgamation of the distinct and eclectic musical taste of its members, Akshay Chowdhry (Vocals, Guitars), Sumant Balakrishnan (Guitars, Vocals) and Dushyant Purohit (Bass) .The band is heavily influenced by all time classic sounds of bands and artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, SRV, Hendrix and Metallica while leaning towards a more modern sound in the style of Tool, Stone Temple Pilots, etc.
Based out of a country and culture that is still embracing the concept of rock ‘n roll and live music , BFL has worked passionately on honing their craft in terms of combining technical skill and quality songwriting and believe that their hard work is ready to be recognized on a global scale. The combination of influences backed by a loaded blues rock driven guitar style that developed over the years, led to a unique east-west dynamic that has translated into complete and relevant songwriting. Over the past few years, the band has done dozens of studio sessions that have yielded positive results. Two of their tracks 'Glow' and 'Mirage', have received International acclaim as 'Semi Finalists' from the UK Songwriters Contest for 2009 and 2010 respectively.
The band has recently recorded their debut album with producer Zorran Mendonsa and are looking forward to releasing it in November 2010. With a twin guitar offensive, haunting basslines and thumping rhythms, Barefaced Liar is all set to impress…
