Cincinnati is no stranger to rock music - much less classic and psychedelic rock - but few can describe the energy and depth of creativity emanating from this four-piece Cincinnati-native rock group. In a little under a year, TasteFull transformed themselves from a backyard jam session into a fully fledged rock production, working with friends and connections to establish their presence within many different avenues of Cincinnati music. This is the Cincinnati band that never sleeps - and when they say they're independent, they mean it.
Their much anticipated debut single "Oxygen" was released in April 2020, drawing immediate attention within the region and earning them features and interviews on well known radio stations including 102.7 WEBN Native Noise, 106.3 The Project, Power 105 Athens, and a week-long feature on the Homegrown hour of 96 Rock. After their first taste, local radio DJ's were hooked, and TasteFull comfortably established a consistent top 25 position on Cincy music as most played band on Cincinnati radio. Their roots in psychedelic rock, grunge, noise rock, 60s and 70s pop rock, ska, punk, jazz, and indie concoct an authentically ethereal energy in their live music, while their original compositions weave their varied influences with a modern sensibility, making their sound a uniquely relevant voice for today's youth.
Over the course of 2020, TasteFull recorded their first full length album, 'Radha,' with accomplished local producer Nolan Monigold and his budding label, Monigold Studios. Since its April 2021 release, Radha has reached listeners across the nation. Most notably, "Running in Circles" reached the ears of Alice Cooper, who ran the track on his internationally airing personal radio show, Nights with Alice Cooper. Since then, TasteFull has continued to tour their album, most recently appearing at Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati.
Much has been said about this fiery group, but Alice Cooper himself may have said it best - "TasteFull is the deja new."
