Komox is a Canadian-rooted alternative indie-pop trio based out of Los Angeles California. Formed in the spring of 2012, the melodic-synthwave driven project was birthed by Bryce Soderberg, long time bassist and backing vocalist of the Multi-Platinum rock group Lifehouse. After 6 albums and ten years of touring with Lifehouse, the band took a temporary hiatus. During that time, Soderberg dove headfirst into the LA songwriting scene. “I just soaked up whatever session I could get” Says Soderberg. “I wrote with Pop artists, Hip-Hop artists, indie rock bands and collaborated with a ton of great alternative acts and producers. It was a humbling yet exhilarating experience. I learned a lot, and got chance to infuse it all into this project.” The band consists of longtime songwriting partner and ModwheelMood guitarist Pelle Hillstrom and Drummer Kris Persson. Will Champlin (The Voice) has been contributing keyboards and vocals on new tracks and will be a part of the upcoming LP in 2017.
The Power trio stylistically come from similar backgrounds and share the same passion for the future of the band. Having experimented with dark-pop sounds with production from (Nine Inch Nails) keyboardist Allesandro Cortini, collaborations with Producer/Mixer Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83) And Producer/Mixer Mark Needham (The Killers/Imagine Dragons) Komox has played countless shows developing, writing and recording demos. "It was a necessary change as far as the music was concerned" says Soderberg. "It felt right to get back to the roots of where I'm from and put a positive connotation to the name" One of his favorite places to visit as a child was the Comox Valley on Vancouver island, BC, the root of it's indigenous name meaning “plentiful". Bryce is thrilled to be able to be a part of two epic bands. He says, "To be able to still play and create with my Lifehouse brothers while fostering and developing this other side of me musically, is the greatest opportunity any musician can ask for. This really is the best of both worlds
