Take It Back
Voted ROCK ALTERNATIVE ARTIST OF THE YEAR by the L.A. Music Awards, this hard-hitting group is well on their way to the bigger & better... Fronted by midwest transplant, Angela Ueber, Leda Atomica's sound rocks the stage and reaches vocal dynamics few can compare to. Using her stage experience from previous band endeavors, Angela is not afraid to take control and drive this band to the top. Hints of her influences - 90's chick rock like Veruca Salt, Concrete Blonde, and Elastica - swarm the guitar driven tracks of their music. Bassist, Marika Tjelios hails from Montreal but now calls Los Angeles home. This classically trained pianist and Berklee Graduate, has composed music for ringtones, commercials, industrial videos and short films. Marika's past credits also include touring and recording with Jariya, Sue Medley, Gogh Van Go, Men Without Hats and Melissa Ferrick. Her fluid bass lines evoke a hypnotic, yet solid drive to Leda Atomica's music. Filling in on drums is the ever versatile Chase Manhattan. His resume has been consumed by top global bands over the years including The Blare Bitch Project, Dee Dee Ramone, and currently The UV's. Touted as one of the best drummers in Los Angeles and around the world, he does not hesitate to BRING IT! Rounding out the 4-some is guitarist, Janel Jones. Self taught, quiet yet deadly tones pour out of her amp and into the melodic web that is Leda Atomica. Born and bred on Brit pop, she is sure to be recognized...not just because she is a chick on guitar. Leda Atomica's music is setting a standard everywhere they play...people continue to stop and take notice... Discography Leda Atomica's first full length CD, "Take It Back", was released Spring of 2006. The CD offers the same intimacy, confidence, and power that has come be expected from the band.
