Loophole

Ovation at Green Valley Ranch, Feb. 2

Blending soul-searching lyrics and a Christian-acoustic-rock sound, this local band brought a feel-good vibe to their set. With three “lead” singers in a four-piece band, the group of multi-instrumentalists sound kind of like Crosby, Stills & Nash with a touch of Audioslave. Loophole’s songs featured incredible three-part harmonies and eternity-minded lyrics that asked “Where ya gonna be when the big man finally comes?”

Bassist/guitarist/vocalist Tim Catching, wearing a coat designed by his sister, professed his faith on the track “Whisper for the Masses” and on his beautiful rendition of Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah.” One of Loophole’s other multi-instrumentalists, who goes by the name Arrow, complemented the band nicely with his pleasing vocals and exciting stage presence. Loophole’s heavenly harmonies are definitely worth checking out. (Loophole plays every first Thursday at Ovation, doors at 8 p.m., free, 21 and up). ★★★☆☆

And he seemed to be on the top of the world, or at least at the precipice of a new creative life, when Vegas Seven interviewed him in the Nov.
