Formed in 2010 by brothers Garrett (bass) and Colton Miller (guitar) in Owasso, Oklahoma, Lucid Awakening set out to make their mark in the progressive world. They began writing songs together, soon bringing drummer Nicholas Santistevan into the creative process in 2011. Dedicated practicing and writing led to their first show as a 3-piece in 2014, providing local support in Oklahoma City for Intronaut's 10th anniversary tour. Work resumed, and second guitarist Jake Jezek joined the band in 2015, followed by keyboardist Michael McGinley in 2017.
Finally equipped with a full sound, work began towards recording their first album. In April of 2018 they released their debut single, Insight, the first showcase of their fun and intense songwriting.
Influenced by the likes of Between The Buried And Me, Dream Theater, Haken, Scale The Summit, and many others, they use many elements of their predecessors to craft their own unique sound. The songs are cinematic in scope and dynamic in texture, with sweeping melodies, dramatic progressions, and moody jams, providing an epic and satisfying experience for the listener.
Heavy music for cruising the path.
