Artist of the day: Selby
Orlando's Selby are one of the glossier Florida rock bands to come along in some time.
Named for frontman/lead rock star Bahnz Selby, the band has a sound that's pulsating, mainstream-leaning rock 'n' roll -- think Lifehouse, Editors, The Fray or a less operatic Muse. The British influence is no accident -- Selby toured Europe backing up other artists, before moving to Nashville as a session musician. Now he's in Orlando, and the music his band is producing has been used on the Golf Channel and other TV enterprises. Click here to check out their video for the ballad Far.
We'll admit, we're intrigued about their local show this week. On Tuesday (1/18), Selby will perform an in-store set at Best Buy, 21415 U.S. 19 N in Clearwater, from 6 to 8 p.m. Free. Click here for details.
