Lifehouse Ripped Daily’s Place

Sunday Night Rock with Lifehouse Switchfoot and Brynn Elliott 

Lifehouse and Switchfoot  with Brynn Elliott kicked off the “Looking for Summer” Tour,  on July 23rd delivering 30+ shows to venues across the U.S. and Canada and we had a chance to sit down with Lifehouse’s Jason Wade and Bryce Dane Soderberg to talk about the tour.



Formed in 1996 under the name Blyss began to play live shows at high schools and colleges. It wasn’t until 2000 that they changed the Name to Lifehouse and the magic began. When asked about their choosing the band name, front man Jason Wade said, “It’s about what we do as a band and for me personally. Most of this record is about my life and about life’s circumstances. Not only my life, but other peoples’ lives. We thought Lifehouse was a good name for it.”

In 2000, Bryce was visiting a sick friend, and lost in thought back at the hotel, sat down and wrote Lifehouse’s first commercial single Hanging by a Moment. “I was amazed that my friends was really sick and his outlook was so bright” Bryce Said, “I sat down and the words flowed. It was a magical moment”

“Hanging by a Moment” was the third song in chart history to be named the “No. 1 Song of the Year” on the Billboard Hot 100 despite not having reached No. 1 on any weekly Billboard Hot 100 survey (after Sam the Sham & The Pharaohs’ “Wooly Bully” in 1965 and Faith Hill’s “Breathe” in 2000)

In September 2004, Bryce Soderberg (previously of AM Radio) signed on as Lifehouse’s new bassist and withJ ason Wade and Rick Woolstenhulme to begin work on their eponymous third album, spending less than two months in the studio to record thirteen songs produced by John Alagia. Lifehouse was released on March 22, 2005.

On July 24, 2013, Wade posted a letter to the band’s Facebook page saying that Lifehouse had parted with Geffen and was on a temporary hiatus as each band member turned attention to other projects (with the assurance that the band would continue to make records in the future).[39] Drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr. began touring with the Goo Goo Dolls; bassist Bryce Soderberg initiated a new band titled KOMOX; lead guitarist Ben Carey continued work in country rock band Elvis Monroe; and singer and songwriter Jason Wade worked on his as-yet-unreleased singer-songwriter solo record

On December 8, 2014, Lifehouse stated on their official website that Ben Carey would no longer be a part of Lifehouse and instead would be focusing on his own projects; for live shows, the band later revealed that Steve Stout would fill in on lead guitar.

2017 has been an amazing year for LIFEHOUSE, as not only do they have a Greatest Hits album coming out, but they entertained our Troops on the USS Midway on May 27th as part of the Memorial Day Celebration. “Being able to bring a smile and some fun to our Military was amazing”, Bryce said, “being on the USS MIDWAY is a memory that I won’t forget”.

The band was to begin touring in support of the album on June 19, as an opening during the second North American leg of the No Fixed Address Tour, before the tour was cancelled due to the health of headlining band Nickelback’s lead singer, Chad Kroeger. It was at that point that Switchfoot contacted them about doing the “Looking For Summer Tour”.

SWITCHFOOT formed in San Diego in 1996, SWITCHFOOT is Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keyboard, guitar), Drew Shirley (guitar), and Chad Butler (drums). Since their start, the band has sold over 5.7 million copies worldwide of their first nine studio albums (including their 2003 double-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s Grammy Award-winning Hello Hurricane), racked up a string of Alternative radio hit singles, and performed sold-out world tours with over 4 million concert tickets worldwide.

The tour with some great stops at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Miami, Daily’s Place in Jacksonville Florida, Mandalay Bay Beach in Las Vegas, starts In Colorado and circles the US before stops at the Famous Greek Theatre in Las Angeles and finishing up at The Masonic in San Francisco on September 10th.

“With the way the tour is set up, winding down in Los Angeles and playing a date at the Greek Theater is a dream come true” said Wade.  “I grew up in Camarillo, California and love seeing shows there.” The theater made ever more popular after Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, Elisabeth Moss stared in Get Him to the Greek in 2010.

“We still enjoy playing and giving back to the fans who’ve been with us for almost two decades,” says Jason. For someone who began as a songwriter – with no dreams of fame and fortune – Wade has come full circle.  “The music we make will be what we want to make, without worrying about what anybody else thinks… except our audience.”
