If you live anywhere near Austin, Texas, chances are you know about WIDEAWAKE, an ambitious rock band who swept the 2005 Austin Music Awards winning BEST ROCK BAND, BEST POP BAND, and BEST SONGWRITER and MALE VOCALIST in the form of front man Scott Leger. One listen to NOT SO FAR AWAY (2005) reveals that these WIDEAWAKE guys know what it takes to make great pop records.....huge jangly guitars, solid rythyms, singable melodies, and huge measures of that "sensitive-guy factor"......these songs are smart and sensitive, but not in any sort of mopey or whiny sense...NO...these are anthemic rock songs with great hooks owing almost as much to Nirvana as to rootsier rockers Pete Yorn, Tom Petty, and The Counting Crows. Since forming in "The Live Music Capitol of the World" in 2002, WIDEAWAKE has shared the stage with Switchfoot, Gavin Degraw, Third Eye Blind and Sister Hazel, and has garnered the support of Austin's Premier Top 40 and Rock radio stations.....in January 2004 Sheryl Crow joined WIDEAWAKE onstage at Austin's Lucky Lounge where they performed her hit "If It Makes You Happy"....
