Take what you know about starting a band, turn it inside out, and you have Sleeping Buddha. With plenty of experience to draw from, the foursome of Ken Chartrau, Bob Cirilli, Cory Lensing and Michael Morscheck found a new path to success. During their first year and a half together, Sleeping Buddha focused on refining their sound in the studio rather than working it out on stage. Their efforts paid off with the recent release of their debut, self-titled album in early 2006. With over two full sets of solid material to work with, the group hit the live scene at full speed, surprising unsuspecting crowds in front of them. 'Who are these guys?' Sleeping Buddha's sound has been compared to a blend of Chris Cornell, Live, and Pink Floyd, and some hints of early Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots. The group's live shows are energetic, filled with powerful emotion, and always memorable.
