Based in Oakland, The Reset Button is the brainchild of Evan Martin, a former member of other mythical Bay Area bands such as eXtreme elvis, Black Fiction, and Straggler. The band consists of Martin on lead guitar and vocals, Yuriy Goldman on lead guitar, Chris Powell on bass, and Akili Peyton on drums.
They have a modern classic rock sound with obvious bluesy roots as well as lots of other eclectic influences that feel familiar, but sound totally fresh. Your heart will beat to their rock steady rhythm, your spirit will soar while the two guitars blend melodically and seamlessly, and your mind will search while their soulful lyrics tell stories ranging from the power of perspective and living in the moment to the pondering of our ultimate existentialism. The band's live performances showcase incredible musicianship that allow you to just be in the moment, dance to your heart's content, and push The Reset Button on your life!
They released their first EP, Laughing Matters, in November 2017, which is available on all music streaming platforms. A new EP is in the works, so look out for that in the near future!
