Review: Scott Leftwich and the Atarians

BY JORDON CHIARELLI

Recently ranked as the 22nd top act to ever hail from their home-state of North Carolina (yes, there is such a rank), Scott Leftwich and the Atarians are an ode to the ‘good ‘ol days’ of American hard-rock. Fusing many 70’s and 80’s influential sounds, Leftwich and crew pay homage to the greats – Foghat, Sabbath, Kiss and embrace the unique sound of the south; the song, “Let Me Throw it to You,” is extremely Skynard-esque.

The band has the ability to take on blues chord progressions with ease yet know when to kick it up a notch i.e. “Desperate Measures.” This is why they’ve opened for such acts as Journey, Ace Frehley, and Def Leppard and even played venues like the Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood.

You can check them out on Reverb Nation, Facebook, or MySpace.

If you’re a fan of classic rock, open up and allow some youth into the mix – Scott Leftwich and the Atarians are a new twist to a classic sound.
