Miss Massive Snowflake
Miss Massive Snowflake
Miss Massive Snowflake is a Portland, Oregon based band, performing the songs of Shane de Leon. The band has released 3 albums, 3 eps, and 2 singles on North Pole Records in the US and Wallace Records in Europe. Miss Massive Snowflake enjoys playing live and has performed over 350 shows in 8 countries. Shane de Leon was a member of experimental pop band, Rollerball/RllRBll for a decade and has played or recorded music internationally with many artists, including, 31 Knots, Black Heart Procession, Solex, Steve McKay, Bill Horist, Art of Flying, OVO, Squarcicatrici, and Ronin. The charismatic and playful band experiment with orchestral jazz, candy pop, and free-spirited psychedelic rock to create a unique musical vernacular. Miss Massive Snowflake marry traditional familiarities and edgy concepts with catchy energetic rock, and craft deceptively intricate songs. Like a Book blends angled radio hits, a jazz sensibililty, and boy band punk.

With an emotive voice, compelling lyrics, and sounding at times like a west coast David Byrne, Bowie, or Hendrix, Shane de Leon sings short story song blasts over an adventurous mix, a sort of Flaming Lips / Minutemen mash up. There is an inspiring fire that burns through 2012's Like a Book's 10 tracks and 33 minutes. The drums and bass drive while horns punch into screwed groove guitar riffs producing beautiful, moving, and intellectually satisfying rock music.
