The Better Life Band is a four-piece, original blend of rock music. Hailing from the great Salt Lake valley, they possess the energy and talent to capture a crowd of any size. Composed of heart pounding drums and bass, 80's inspired guitar licks, and soul capturing vocals; they've got the right formula to rock the house.
Their influences span the likes of Goo Goo Dolls, and Def Leppard, to Creed, Papa Roach and even Avenged Sevenfold. Their personal influences bring new ideas to the table that have created their unique sound. Coined as Power-Alt (power/alternative), their music captures the attention of everyone from children to seniors, and has successfully taken Utah by storm.
They've had the privilege of opening with such acts as Tantric, Adema, Burn Halo, The Dreaming, Royal Bliss, just to name a few...
Their self produced, self-titled EP successfully made hits on the radio and propelled the band to new heights, gaining recognition along the west coast. With their debut album "Diversified" just released on August 21st 2010, the band is on fire, always setting higher standards. Their music brings to the scene what it's been lacking: down to earth, heart filled melodies that will change the way you hear music. They're here to remind you why rock and roll is the best there is.
