7 Seas Play Talent Farm and Offer Five of Their Favorite Local Acts

7 Seas is a band that claims to have "no limitations." Musically, that is. Their worldly name indicates their exploratory nature. Drummer Andrew Nicholson says that the diversity of sounds, people, and cultures living around the world's seven seas influenced their moniker and that you can hear the versatility of styles in the writing of their songs.  

"Our musical backgrounds range from classic rock to funk to metal and

alternative," Nicholson says. They dig music from bands like Thrice and A Perfect Circle, and this comes through in their sound. The rest of the band is made up of Ryan Rachal, who sings and plays guitar, and Nick Musumeci, the bassist. The band was born when Nicholson met Rachal through a former Vessel bandmate back in the fall of 2009, but, "It got serious in December of 2009," he notes of their sonic relationship. 

This Sunday, 7 Seas will perform at the Talent Farm in Pembroke Pines for the first time. "We're pretty stoked to be playing this venue. We've heard great things about them for years," he says. Their day has finally come. 

We asked Nicholson his advice on what local acts we should be placing on our iPods. Luckily, he obliged. Click on to read the results.

"Their energy live is intense. They are a humble band with good vibes," Nicholson says of this band that describes themselves as "The kind of music metal dudes listen to with their girlfriends."

The Big Tasty
"One amazing jam band that has a flawless performance every time they play," he raves of the group that claim to be expanding our "musical menu since 2007." 

Space Between Words
Of the soulful alt rock act that's been gigging quite a bit lately, he tells us, "This band is always full of surprises and are quite funny."

Methods of Doubt
"One of the most complex and innovative bands to come out of Miami. They're always pushing the envelope," Nicholson claims of this speedy rock outfit that call their complex sound, "progressive w/ a lower case 'p'."

"A great dubstep group that is blowing up real fast," Nicholson says of these electro-dudes who've been playing every dark corner of South Florida lately. 

And, not to be forgotten, 7 Seas
