“People change, things change, while determination still remains…” For a band that has already had its fair share of hardships in the past, the ever-evolving rock sound of Lik-Wid is now stronger than ever without disregarding the importance self-expression and maintaining melody. After the radio success of "The Last Time", the bands pre-production release demo, which was tracked in Brisbane QLD with Festival/Mushroom producer Stuart Stuart at Chart song Productions (The Veronicas, Small Mercies), which later secured them as Finalists in the 2004 National Songwriting competition - SOYA (Noise), the band began to embark on their most ambitious project to date… “Breathing For The First Time” the bands debut official release, had the benefit of time in production. Original writing began early 2004, and in 2005 the band sought out the help of friend and producer Stuart Stuart (The Veronicas, Small Mercies) again to Co-Produce with the band. “Breathing For The First Time” was to later be mixed by 2005 Aria Award Winning Engineer of the year Matt Lovell (Silverchair, INXS, Lotel, Sarah McLeod), and was Mastered by Steve Smart at 301 Studios Sydney. (Breathing for the First Time is distributed nationally through MGM Distribution). WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT Strongly influenced by a wide collection of artists including (Incubus, Soundgarden, Cat Stevens, Sevendust & Faith No More) and even their heavily inspirational musical peers at the time (The Butterfly Effect, Cog, Testeagles, George etc) the quickly progressing young group were not only inspired, but driven to prove to themselves that's no walls were too high to climb. "Take it to the point that's too far to reach, then take it a step further" is an adopted statement held in high regard by Lik-Wid as it is a testament to never giving up and never letting the difficulty of isolation hinder the ability to succeed.
