Rising out of the fertile musical plains of the Sioux Empire in eastern South Dakota, The Bliss makes pop/rock music that some say marries the playfulness of Jason Mraz to a Fleetwood Mac-type melodic ache. But, decide for yourself...

The Bliss was born in the tiny town of Brookings, South Dakota when visionary drummer, Louis Whitehead, asked, Aaron Toronto, a crafty singer / songwriter, to jam a few years ago. After catching their two-person act, Janelle Anderson, the classically trained and sublimely gifted songstress graced the group with her harmonious influence. Soon thereafter, Mike Ropp, an ingenious songwriter and prodigious bass player and multi-instrumentalist, joined the fun, crystallizing The Bliss' sound.
Each member of The Bliss invests heavily in the songwriting, which pays dividends in the form of inimitable musical stylings, brave storytelling and juicy vocal harmonies. The list of Bliss influences is long… from The Beatles to Rush to the Barenaked Ladies to Stevie Wonder to The Police to Janis Joplin to Frank Sinatra to Lily Allen to Opera, and more.
The Bliss is currently recording and releasing a short album with videos, song by song, entitled, Fashionably Discontent.
