Armed with an enviable combination of musical prowess and an impressive collection of honest, melodic songs, Tallahassee’s Go Radio is one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from Florida’s hotbed of rock n’ roll talent. Second EP Do Overs And Second Chances is a perfect showcase of the band’s abilities, evoking the excitement of discovering something fresh, something exciting. Something real.
Singer/guitarist Jason Lancaster formed Go Radio in 2008, recruiting Matt Burns on bass, Alex Reed on guitar and Steven Kopacz on drums. The quartet released first EP, Welcome To Life, in August 2008, and after sensing that they had created something truly special, decided to test the new songs out on the road. “At first Go Radio was just an outlet to write and make music, but after a week or two, it all just started coming together,” notes Lancaster. “It became so much fun to start touring and playing for people, getting the responses from them. After we started touring more and decided to record the first EP, we knew this had the potential to grow and get bigger than we thought it could be.” The band spent the following two years captivating audiences with their refreshing take on pop-rock, signing to Fearless Records in January 2010.
Formed in a small town in South Dakota, a state not widely recognized for its contributions to the world of music, Paradise Fears has set out with a unique mission: tell a real story. "We wanted to write songs that matter," says lead singer Sam Miller. "Simple as that." Now a 6-piece, 10-instrument rock outfit, they began as 6 high school friends, their first recordings paid for by their full time jobs at grocery stores and sandwich shops. After two years of touring and two albums, the band is still evolving and perfecting their unique brand of theatrical alternative pop, infusing orchestral soundscapes and even spoken word, their central tenant as remained the same: honest lyrics and "songs that matter."
