The Radiant is Christian Yorke (Vocals, guitars), Mark Mangold (keys, etc.), Jonny Cragg (live drums) and Jordan Brooks (bass). Based out of New York the band has been together for 1 1/2 years having played most of the local New York venues, a residency at Arlene’s Grocery.
The music speaks for itself. It is rooted in keyboards and akin in some ways to bands like Keane, The Fray, The Bravery, maybe even Coldplay. Christian’s voice harkins to voices like Jeff Buckley, The Muse, Maroon 5 and even Bono at times, though he clearly has a style of his own. The songs range from catchy and accessible, lush and well produced pop songs to dark and ambitious excursions into other dimensions. The musicianship is stellar, the guys having played locally and toured internationally together and in various incarnations…and all this has been brought to bear on The Radiant’s records.
The band has just recently completed their second CD and has 3 videos for your viewing…and more in the edit room as we speak.
