Catawba students’ Life Size to release debut EP

Published 12:00 am Thursday, February 27, 2014

If you attended the Bombadil concert in Salisbury then you will remember the band that opened for them: Life Size. This group, a pop/rock band made up of Catawba College students, is now ready to release their first EP — “Mockingbird Alarmclock EP” — and will do it while playing a live show at Lee Street theatre this Saturday, March 1. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30.
Life Size members include Silas Boyle (vocals/guitar/piano) of Louisville, Ky.; Jake Martin (vocals/guitar) of St. Louis, Mo.; Allijah Motika (vocals/guitar/piano) of Asheville; Tevin Carr (drums) of Statesville; and Greg Moore (bass/vocals) of Durham.
Motika said this first EP embodies the growth of the band from five musicians to a cohesive unit. Listeners can expect to hear elements of folk, pop, rock and blues highlighted by creative vocal harmonies.
“This EP is a huge step for our band,” Motika explains. “We finally get to share our music with the people who have supported us as we have developed over the past two years. Now our fans can take us home with them.”

A live recording will be made of the March 1 concert with the intent to create a full-length album. The album will be engineered by local audio and video producer, Jerod Jacobs, of Six Foot Kitten. Catawba College alumnus and trustee, Bill Graham ’83 of Salisbury, will sponsor this project which Life Size plans to dedicate to the college.
Jeremy and Jessica Vess, a local Salisbury act, will open the show for Life Size.
