Houston Band - Silverleaf
Silverleaf is a modern rock band which has experienced phenomenal growth in a short time but has musical roots which run deep. The band was created after the demise of local group 24 Count. They immediately set their sights on the global market with designs on reaching a large market of music fans. Consisting of vocalist Paul Gross, guitarist Zac Renfro, bassist Matt Radliff, and drummer Bruce Rios this band has made quite a stir in a very short period.
Almost immediately Silverleaf was playing shows all over Texas spreading their message to the fans. They released an album called The Show, 12 tracks recorded at Sugar Hill Studios. The album shows a band clear in direction and sure of themselves and what they want to say with polished tracks fit for mainstream radio. Silverleaf has proven to be a dedicated group of talented musicians, building a fan base quickly and selling out venues and creating a stir in the local music community.
