One could say Centershift has been a band in-the-making since the mid-’90s when vocalist/guitarist Jasan Radford and drummer Michael Tarabotto first played together in a short-lived alternative rock outfit called Bluprnt. Shortly after that, Radford kicked-off OneSideZero (Maverick Records) and went on to record “Is This Room Getting Smaller” to critical acclaim, touring with iconic names including System Of A Down, Static X, Incubus and a host of other bands that would make any post-grunge fan’s toes curl.
It was through touring that Radford first met bassist Ted Wenri of Bemus fame, when both their bands toured with Dredg.
“Over the years, we got together, formulated songs and always knew we wanted to play together. Finally, through the stars aligning, we created Centershift,” says Radford.
Guitarist Ryan Stuber (Shuvel), who joined the line-up this fall, also has history of making music with Radford in a previous project called The Knife Outline.
Though the band has a long history, this incarnation is brimming with new ideas. “Everything comes from an emotional starting point,” explains Radford who shares lyric-writing with his bandmates to present a unified front. “When we step on stage, we want the four of us to be playing that song because we all feel it internally.”
