Aternarive-Rock quartet stowed away in their native Denver, Colorado USA to play music initially in small clubs and formed in the summer of 1998 by vocalist + bassist Danny Elster, lead guitarist Paul Trinidad Jr., rhythm guitarist Micki Shivers and drummer Jim Messina.
The guys soon recorded a self-financed LP entitled "Day-Glo"
which was followed, in the fall of
1999, by their self-titled second indie-album.
They then decided to tour the United States with stops in Phoenix, Los Angeles and Las Vegas; two and a half years later the band issued a third album, "Larger Than Life".
In the summer of 2003 3 Doors Down's guitarist Chris Henderson invited Love.45 to Seattle to record a demo-EP which eventually landed them a deal with Rock Ridge Music who released in November 2004 an album, again self-titled, which included the single "Way Down".
