The Damnwells

The Damnwells

In 2001, a photo assistant named Alex Dezen asked a couple friends to record a few songs with him. Shortly thereafter they would form the Brooklyn based rock band THE DAMNWELLS. Two years later they had toured the country, opened for rock legends, and had a song featured in a major motion picture. By 2004, they had signed a major record deal with EPIC Records (Sony/BMG).

In March of 2005, THE DAMNWELLS went into the studio to record their first professional album. For six months, THE DAMNWELLS immersed themselves in preproduction, recording, and mixing. But as months passed, their release date was moved further and further away. In January of 2006, lead singer Alex Dezen received a call they never expected. The band was being released from their contract and the fate of the album was unknown. For the moment, it would sit on a shelf at EPIC Records and collect dust.

the_damnwellsTHE DAMNWELLS, who had previously recorded their albums in a storage space and their apartments, were not used to waiting. They had been in complete control of their music and their lives before they signed on the dotted line. Now, a year of their lives was sitting on a shelf waiting to be heard.

Will the band break up, will they go their separate ways, or will they take back their future?

Ten Year Vamp has sold thousands of CDs… even landed on the Billboard Charts, and have performed 2-4 shows a week for the past 6 years.

Ten Year Vamp - Band“While I’m a ‘girly girl’ in the sense that I like to do my hair and wear makeup and look pretty, I never degrade myself. My sex appeal is a result of the raw confidence I have inside—and I’ve earned that.” Debbie Gabrione says with a self-assuredness that you have to admire. She’s the bold lead singer of Ten Year Vamp, a power pop band with energy to spare. Imagine Foo Fighters meets Green Day with Gwen Stefani on vocals and you have an idea of their sound.

Solfege Radio

Solfege_RadioSolfege Radio came together in January 2008 and consisted of 17 year old Marco Torriani (Vocals), 16 year old Connor Wilson (Bass/Vocals), and brothers Jon (Guitar/Vocals – 18) and Matt Stolpe (Drums – 14). The line-up rounded out shortly after with the addition of Joey Nester (17) on Guitar and Vocals.

The young band quickly became veterans of the NJ music scene by winning the preliminary rounds of the Jersey Shows 9th Annual Battle of the Bands. Their raw and honest live show and their throw-back NJ punk sound rang a chord with audiences. The band gained unprecedented support from the regional youth and their fanbase swelled.

“2009 looks to be a busy and promising year for the young five piece. Look for Solfege Radio to grow and hone their unique brand of melodic pop punk in the year to come as they turn heads and win over crowds with their outstanding stage performances. Solfege Radio is definitely a young band to watch in 2009.”

-Rob Dekker (Danimal Records)
