My Satellite is a Los Angeles based four piece who create a lush field of sound that will ultimately break your heart . By blending elements of post-rock, indie pop, and electronica, My Satellite creates a refreshing alternative sound that is melancholic and yet uplifting. Lyrics that wander from thoughts on abandonment to undeserved love to acceptance of death lay a heavy heart upon a wall of layered instrumentation and vocal harmonies that move the listener into a world where seemingly opposed emotions occupy the same melody.

 

Bryan Stage began working on the music that would eventually become My Satellite while holed up in his Hollywood studio apartment working with just a guitar, a keyboard and a laptop. Pulling inspiration from early David Bowie, Elliott Smith, Sigor Ros and Postal Service, by the beginning of 2010 he had released a four song EP entitled "Telescopes" under the name My Satellite and then followed that up at the start of 2011 with another four song EP called "Depths". Both EPs garnered praise around the internet. The single "A Nighttime Daydream" was called "An electrifying sound"(Oh! So Famous!) and of the music it was said that "His sound is euphoric"(Ride The Tempo). A BeatCrave.com review, which lead to a selection as the "BeatCrave Fav of the Month" for April, said of My Satellite that it is "a sound that demands the attention of the listener and refuses to simply blend into background noise".

 

As 2011 kicked off, Stage (vocals and guitar) began putting together a lineup for the band. Andy Marshall on bass and backup vocals, Ryan Ward on guitar and Justin Paul on drums, My Satellite began to hit the Los Angeles scene by mid-year, playing their first Los Angeles show to a sold out crowd at Hollywood's Amplyfi. They've shared the stage with a plethora of talent including Sage Francis, Big Black Delta, Minnesota, Geographer, The Colourist, and Trails and Ways. 2012 saw the band receive radio play on LA's KROQ 106.7FM and KCSN 88.5FM. The single "Mirrors" was on the KROQ Local's Only Top 5 for eight weeks in a row including two weeks at #1. After a highly successful crowd-sourcing campaign, the band has completed their first full-length album entitled Lift, mixed by Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Eels, Jon Brion) and mastered by Dave Cooley (M83, Fitz & the Tantrums, Local Natives) and was released in early 2014.
