Formed in early 2001, Active Radio pulled musicians from Texas' top acts together to create a powerhouse rock band. Aaron Barrera (Abra Moore / Ten Percenter) and Kelly Smith met during an India Records recording session and rapidly began recruiting their ideal rhythm section. They found just that in their new bass player, Steve Bernal (Grand Street Criers / Billy White Trio / Joe Rockhead) and drummer, Seth Orell (Ginger Mackenzie / Amy Atchley). Since then, Active Radio has attracted the attention of Texas radio, including Austin's 101-X, Corpus Christi's C-101, and statewide syndicated radio Texas Shock Syndrome. They have also recently linked with George Couri (Capital Sports & Entertainment) for representation and join a select roster of artists including Abra Moore, Shawn Colvin, Patrice Pike, Dynamite Hack, and Schatzi. Active Radio regularly performs at Austin's premiere clubs with both monthly bookings at the legendary Antone's and a weekly acoustic residency at The Lucky Lounge.
