Maid Myriad biography
Akron Ohios kaleidoscope rock band MAID MYRIAD blends dynamically versatile songs, angsty progressive riffs, delicate pin drop moments, and intense start/stop dynamics. They formed in 2007 and quickly made a name for themselves in the local scene, receiving heavy regional airplay from their debut EP Embrace, logging miles in the van, and opening for such national acts as PRIMUS, GOGOL BORDELLO, DAX RIGGS, MAPS & ATLASES, and AS TALL AS LIONS. Led by protagonist songwriter Jeff JCK KLEMM, MAID MYRIAD packs more genres into a band than most. Combining their love of progressive, psychedelic, punk, ambient and acoustic music, the soaring vocals mixed with intricate drums and spacey crunchy melodic guitars bond together to form the plethora of sounds that is Maid Myriad. After releasing two critically acclaimed EPs and being named Akrons 2nd best local band in 2010 (behind THE BLACK KEYS), the band is readying its full length debut With Haste On Its Breath. Mixed by producer Jim WIRT (INCUBUS, FIONA APPLE, HOOBASTANK, LIVE, JACLS MANNEQUIN), With Haste On Its Breath will see a mid 2014 release via Nefarious Industries.

MAID MYRIAD have played over 100 shows in 2013 and are continuing to tour heavily throughout the year in support of the album. The Camera Eye EP, featuring three tracks from With Haste On Its Breath, can be downloaded for free at http://nefariousindustries.com/artists/maid-myriad/ Updated news and information is available via the band's official Facebook page.

Maid Myriad Crossover Prog

Review by Second Life Syndrome
Collaborator Post/Math Rock and Crossover Teams

4 stars It's always a pleasure to hear music from my local area, but it is double the pleasure to hear a prog band that is close by me. Akronites Maid Myriad were introduced to me by an old school buddy, and I'm certainly glad he got me into connection with them. Maid Myriad is self- described as kaleidoscope rock, of which prog rock is but one part. Indeed, this band has many influences and ideas; and their new, three-song EP shows this in spades.

The new EP, "Camera Eye", features three excellent rock songs that will give some taste of a full album that is due out in 2014. The band plays a style of rock that feels indie, proggy, alternative, and fresh all at the same time. Indeed, they sound very much like The Dear Hunter mixed with The Mars Volta with a touch of Incubus. This interesting band utilizes a very high, piercing guitar tone that is molded into some great sideways lines and some very interesting instrumental interplay. Yes, the technicality of this album is probably at a medium level. In fact, the drummer plays like he has more than two arms sometimes. The vocals recall the emo movement a few years back, but not completely. They have a little bit of whine to them, but they tend to be beautiful and melodic consistently. In fact, the singer hits some great notes, especially on "Camera Eye" that are very impressive. As for favorite tracks, however, I think "Azure Plains" takes that. The groovy style and the fantastic structure touch my prog heart.

As a preface to their soon-to-be-released debut album, "Camera Eye" is catchy, geometrically ambitious, and accessible to a comfortable point. Soulful at times, hard rockin' at others; Maid Myriad has left me wanting to hear more from them. Yep, this EP is just too darn short. I hope the debut album has this same level of quality.
