Album Notes
Soften The Glare consists of bassist Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne), guitarist Bon Lozaga (Gong, Gongzilla, Tiny Boxes) and drummer Mitch Hull. Their debut album "Making Faces" was recorded and produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit).

When Bon and Ryan first met in LA and started talking about getting together to create some music, they didn't know what to expect. Now as Soften The Glare, their music is evolving and constantly changing, bringing in elements from both their worlds and others. Currently their music is headed in an instrumental jazz/rock direction with elements of metal, funk, prog and a touch of chaos! Check it out and decide for yourself!!
Ryan is known for his bass playing and songwriting for Mudvayne. Numerous world tours (including a stint with Korn), MTV awards and millions of records sold are part of his musical pedigree. Bon is known in the jazz/rock world and jamband scene (guesting with moe. and Umphreys McGee) and has released over a dozen albums featuring such noted guests as Allan Holdsworth, Kai Eckhardt, David Torn, David Fiuczynski, with his various projects and has also toured throughout the world. Together along with Mitch Hull, they create Soften The Glare!

Soften the Glare
This is nothing but abstract metal funk and it's lack of focus betrays the talent behind this endevour. There are a dozen bands out there doing this and better.
