Electric Standard

Electric Standard plays rock, blues and soul with the sound, spirit and enthusiasm of the original rock 'n' roll combos. 

Formed in 2015, the Boston-area trio initially began as a cover band, interpreting songs from a wide range of eras and genres through a roots-rock sensibility.  Soon, the band began to write and release its own music (though they still appreciate a distinctive cover version of a classic tune.)  As a band that features three professional English teachers, the group writes songs with a careful attention to song structure and lyric.   

In 2020, Electric Standard released its debut album, Vintage Circuitry to strong reviews.  Metronome magazine named it one of their "Top 20 of 2020", citing the group's "savvy songcrafting bolstered by equally sharp musicianship." 

The band's latest album, Lady Luck & the Grand Vizier, was produced with Bill Mason at Second Story Studios.  Released in 2023, the album shows Electric Standard expanding its sonic range to include an even wider range of blues, folk and pop styles.  Rebecca Cullen of Stereo Stickman called the album ""[A] fantastic project . . . a faultlessly written and recorded collection, joyful to let play but also profound and powerful when you need it to be."

Electric Standard performs regularly in the greater Boston area, at venues including Once Somerville, The Wakefield Estate, The Square Root, The Midway Cafe, Club Bohemia at the Cantab Lounge, and The Milton Art Center.
