Built for the Sea are an american band based in San Francisco. The band is composed of lead vocalist, guitarist/pianist Lia Rose, lead guitarist Johnny Latimer, bass player Daniel McKenzie, drummer Eric Kuhn and cellist Michael Fecskes. The band released their self-titled debut album on Nov. 21 2006, “Built for the Sea”; the album included 10 tracks: We Now Know, Hypnotist, Release, Paper Tigers, Dive In, Awake, These Streets, Move in Time, My Dear and Dreamer.
Originally, there was only Lia Rose, but eventually evolved into a band of five members with the latest addition in the person of Michael Fecskes. The band's signature sound finds its own take of indie-rock music, producing almost hypnotic and soothing melody at the same time. While that soft husky dreamy voice of Lia Rose plus the powerful musical build up coming from the guitar, drums, piano and cello combined together never fails to move people's hearts and minds.
Following their début album, the band released an EP titled Mise En Scene in 2008 and another called “Baby It's Cold Outside” in 2009. Built for the Sea is already working on songs for their fourth official release and touring clubs and intimate venues around United States.
