LaRissa Vienna and the Strange
LaRissa Vienna and the Strange are a spooky rock band from Denver, Colorado.
LaRissa Vienna has been an artist in the Denver music scene since the age of fifteen. Starting out as an electronic artist, then playing and touring as the guitarist of the band BAD for three years, she then returned to her rock roots as a solo artist.

Yellow Scene Magazine says, "LaRissa Vienna describes herself as a 'spooky pop artist from Denver.' That's fair, but it only tells half the story. With beautifully melancholic, atmospheric vocals that skirt the line between spoken-word poetry and singing, Vienna is a true artist and one to watch on the local scene."

Influenced by David Bowie, Johnny Cash and Shirley Temple (with a tattoo on her shoulder to match), LaRissa Vienna is a force to be reckoned with. Her somber ghostly rock tunes will entrance you and leave chills down your spine. The melodic, story-telling guitar mixes perfectly with the melancholy tones of her voice. The bass stays loyal to the hard-hitting drums.

Despite the soothing rock tones, LaRissa Vienna's live show is nothing short of energetic. Standing 4 feet 11 inches all, her fiery energy demands the attention of every soul in the audience.

"Mermaid", Vienna's first single from 2012, is a dark electronic song with hypnotic harmonies, accompanied by a morbid, dreamy music video.

"Underwater", the most recent release, blew her previous work out of the water:

"Starting off with somber guitars and deep, earthy drums, the track maintains the eerie mood with chilling yet beautiful lyrics and haunting vocals. The song evokes a feeling of pleasantly drowning; which may sound strange, but it makes it all the more engrossing. With a windy chorus and a romantic, albeit slightly creepy, bridge and finale, this track sores above the rest and showcases the talent of this group."
-ReverbNation Crowd Review

"The Strange" is Nick Workman - the lead guitarist with wild hair who has experience in every style. Aaron Mendoza on bass, influced by the Cure and Coheed and Cambria has experience in experimental bands and plays perfectly with the hard hitting drum styles of Luke Wolff. The classically trained violinist Vanity Welch adds a perfect unique touch to the band.

LaRissa Vienna intends to promote a positive message with music, relate to those who are unable to speak up and give them something to sing out loud to.
