Biography:

The Weird, an alternative, pop/prog-rock trio from New Jersey, delivers a classical-based American/British rock sound, which crosses many genres and incorporates diverse influences and instrumentation. The bandís music evokes the lush, melodic multi-dimensional landscapes of other-worldly artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Muse and Cold Play. Yet, the groupís music also brings to mind the simplicity of legendary catalogs by storytellers like Elton John, U2, Nirvana, and Stevie Wonder. 

The trio includes: 
Phillip Brazer, a formally classically-trained pianist and electro-acoustic composer, who turned into a pop singer-songwriter, keyboardist and producer. 
Grant Brazer producer, engineer, drummer and songwriter. 
Justin Hansen, guitarist, bassist and songwriter. 

The poetic wordplay of the trioís songs is honest, profound and expresses lifeís beautifully complex relationships, sacrifices, regrets, disappointments, memories, loves and heartbreaks. 

The Weird began its journey in 2011, when Grant met fellow high school student Justin Hansen, and they formed a band called ďPlaidĒ which performed, wrote and recorded a combination of instrumental originals and arrangements of music by rock giants like Nirvana, Led Zeppelin and The Who. After auditioning several local singers, they invited Phillip to add his multifaceted signature voice and dexterous songwriting talents to the mix, and The Weird was born, earning its name from the membersí strange story of coming together from two generations to create one artistic vision. 

While working on their debut album, Sacrifice in 2012, the three were introduced to Ed Wilson, a Pennsylvania-based virtuoso guitarist who took an immediate interest in the project and added guitar and bass to the bandís recordings, infusing each song with an exciting and supernatural energy.
