Band Of The Week (Lotus Crush) 4.27.20

The revolution of Rock n’ Roll has led musicians down a number of respective paths over the last few decades, but only some have found a way to evoke feelings of nostalgia while creating original music in modern day.

Under the name Lotus Crush, a driven group of experienced musicians are rattling the indie rock scene with their full-bodied instrumentals and melodic, yet powerfully evocative lyrics. Their sound is heavily influenced by the traditional elements of ground-breaking artists coming from the Pacific Northwest. Following the success of their second album from 2015, Lotus Crush is proud to announce the release of their latest single, “Moment Won’t Last” (4.30.2021)

The Scottish-born singer, Terry McDermott, is no stranger to the stage. He gained national attention after earning the runner-up title on Season 3 of ABC’s The Voice in 2012. Prior to his appearance on The Voice, McDermott was singing in the Aberdeen based band, Driveblind, signed with Geffen Records. While on a U.S. tour with Driveblind in 2006, McDermott met Peter Klett, the founding member and lead guitarist of the multi-platinum rock group, Candlebox. Years later in 2009, the two reconnected to form Lotus Crush, and recruited Scott Mercado, who was also a former member of Candlebox, MIGGS band member John Luzzi, and Second Coming band bassist Johnny Bacolas.
