Mud River began in the fall of 2011 with a musical style that was geared towards alternative rock. Our goal was to bring back the sound of the 90’s bands like Nirvana and Alice In Chains.
A major lineup change in early 2012 left Mud River looking for new members and a new musical direction. The remaining original members Jose Baez and Ferney Padilla began jamming out with guitarist Anthony Morris and the new Mud River sound was discovered.
Heavier sounding guitar and bass along with powerful drumming help create a modern rock sound that will define Mud River. Melodic intros that build towards thunderous riffs help create the basic structure of the Mud River sound.
The music and lyrics were ready but Mud River was lacking a voice. The search for a vocalist was long and many singers auditioned but the Mud River lineup would not be complete until Dave Cornejo stepped up to the microphone. His voice is equally melodic, rhythmic, and powerful and has brought the Mud River songs to life.
With all the pieces in place Mud River is ready to take the music world by storm and 2012 is just the beginning. Muddy fans get ready to jump in the mud pit with us! Time to get muddy! \m [+]
