Exotica started it's life as a duo comprised of the extraordinary vocals of Meeta Gajjar, the first rock singer from India and the instrumental creations of multi talented musician and guitarist, Cole Hoover. As if destined to be, a chance encounter brought them together with a vision of a sound with no boundaries or preconceived notions. Formed in the summer of 2008, this exciting new group offers a diverse sound ranging from hard rock to electronica. Catchy, haunting, soaring soprano vocals fused to hypnotic, driving music gives the listener a truly original musical experience. The addition of the brilliant drumming of Mike Farrell, whose finesse and powerful style forms the backbone of the bands sound, was a key element to their progression. The rhythm section was complete when the rock solid and nimble fingered Tom Hyatt came to join the band soon after. This dynamic duo is capable of laying the foundation of groove as well as flights of virtuosity. The combination of outstanding musicianship and memorable, emotional songs provide a sound often not found in this genre. A notable aspect of Exotica's music is the positive nature of the lyrics, providing optimism that is often lacking with a band like this. So get ready to journey into a realm of timeless and magical music known as Exotica.
