The Side Effects...

Modern eclectic music by Los Angeles musician/sculptor/artist Bruce Gray

Who are The Side Effects?
The band is a solo musical effort by artist Bruce Gray.
What kind of music do The Side Effects play?
The Side Effects play a modern mix that is part rock, part jazz, part electronica, part funk, and part world music. Bruce says this album is inspired by bands like Moby, Pat Metheny, Pink Floyd, Thievery Corporation, Kraftwerk, and Kruder and Dorfmeister. The first album "Resistance is Futile" is done entirely on a Macintosh computer using Apple's Garage Band software. The second album "But What About The Side Effects?" is now in the works. It is also being made using Garage Band, but features recorded external voice, sample, and various live instrument tracks.

What did Bruce think of Apple's Garage Band program?
"Garage Band is one of the coolest, most fun, and satisfying programs I have ever used. I have always wanted to make my own music, and now thanks to a program that came free with my new Mac G5, I have my own in home recording studio. I am thrilled!"
