Influence has been immersing itself into what has become a vibrant East Coast rock scene. Thriving on their hybrid fusion, luscious counter-melodies and seldom heard five part harmonies, The Influence has established their presence amongst the elite rockers of today.

The five piece band is influenced by the familiar sounds of the great 90s rock movement but is undeniably rooted in late 60s and early 70s rock sensibility. Matthew Archer Stephenson's smokey vocals provide a candid look into the harsher, more provocative themes usually locked deep within the vaults of more tortured minds. Channeling the introspective and often desperate ideas in the songs are the beautiful intermingling guitars of Chris Kendrick and WIll Clarke. The passion in each song is striking when paired with the dynamic rhythms of drummer Collin Cogan and bassist Chris Tully. Their on stage delivery is pure chaos in its search for perfection. An influence show is pure explosion usually leaving a stage dismantled and the audience enamored.

The Influence has shared the stage with:
Saosin
Silverchair
Papa Roach
Saliva
Jimmy Eat World
Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Paramore
Shiny Toy Guns
Angels and Airways
The Starting Line
Finger 11
Los Lonely Boys
