Sleeping with Angel

You may think to yourself, what is Sleeping with Angels ? In mid June of 2007, a group of five musicians in their early 20's from southern California formed a band who called themselves Sleeping with Angels. The Band was started by starters/remaining members of the band Zain, Josh Galo (Lead Vocals) and Anthony Reta (Bass/Vocals/keyboard). As they were seeking musicians early in the year they came across a lead guitarist that seemed to catch their eye. That guitarist was Andrew Garcia, He was referred by a close friend by the name of Hollywood Jerry, an ex Band mate of Andrew. Both Andrew and jerry played in a band called the Eden Eye, they ended up playing a few gigs before they called it quits. As soon as Andrew joined Sleeping with Angels Jerry was chosen to be one of the band's roadies/mascot. Later on around early June they received a message on their myspace profile from a guitarist and a drummer by the name of Oscar (guitarist) and Tony (Drummer). They were both seeking musicians to form a band and when they spotted an ad on myspace from musicians around their town who were searching for a band, They decided to give it a shot and reply to the ad. By mid June the band was complete, with the lineup of Josh Galo on vocals, Anthony Reta on bass, Andrew on lead guitar, Oscar on rhythm guitar and Tony on drums. The band soon got together to create their Songs to later prepare for what’s to come in the future. As time went by the band went ahead and continued to create music, in their own creative way in which captured all their musical interest. But at the same time not sounding like any other band around. during their rehearsals they would invite many friends and one day met a drummer by the name of Fabio Patino a good friend of Tony who helped the band with fresh ideas. By late August, That drummer would soon replace Tony on drums. With very little time, days away from the band's first gig in September, the band worked hard to prepare themselves. Then the day came, and they played their gig at a nearby bar in which after the show the band gained their confidence and thought they can definitely do that as a living. A few days after they're first gig the band was invited to play at the world famous whisky a go go on October 10. But was later pushed back to October 20, so that way the band can gain more confidence by playing at smaller places. So as time went by the band continued to create new music and continued to play gig after gig and continue to do so. Playing what they believe is what music should really sound like. Unlike going with the flow of what radio stations are currently playing. When making music, the band tries to keep an open mind and tries not to label or limit their sound because they know that if they would, it would limit their capabilities. So with the mixture of keeping an open mind
and of each other's personal influences, the band seems to create a sound like no other, a sound that’s original and different. Sleeping with Angels normally doesn't like to label themselves, so they leave it up to the fans for their own opinion
