Dinner and a Suit
In a music world where genre lines are increasingly blurred, DINNER AND A SUIT has emerged with a sonic meld that resonates with familiarity and captivates with distinction.
Formed in New Jersey by cousins Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca, the three looked to their lineage for a musical namesake.
During the Great Depression, the trio's great grandmother was a seamstress by day and community humanitarian by night, welcoming the less fortunate into her home to feed home-cooked meals and then send off with newly repaired suits and clothing.
As a combined unit, the efforts of Capeci, Beretta and Genca have forged a path that reflects their music itself: putting the right pieces in the right places at all the right times.
Since their formation in 2009, Dinner And A Suit quickly captured attention with a captivating blend of ethereal rock and distinguished pop - leading to critical acclaim, a swelling dedication of global fans, and coveted live dates that have circled the band throughout the US.
The spiraling success fueled Dinner And A Suit to transplant to Nashville in late 2010, where they began work on what would become Since Our Departure - their brand new full-length album.
"We left the comforts of home to pursue this dream," explains Capeci. "And that definitely comes through on this record."
To record Since Our Departure, the band split their time between Glow in the Dark Studios in Atlanta with producer Matt Goldman (Anberlin, Underoath), then with Tyler Orr (As Cities Burn, Copeland) at First Street Studios in Cleveland TN.
The resulting work is a range of bold anthems, layered with soaring melodies that are riveting with honesty. Throughout the album's ten towering tracks, Capeci's lush timbre weaves universal themes of forgiveness and hope, love and loss, and discovering a place in the world.
"It just poured out of us," Genca adds. "There's a lot of passion and energy on this record. It's an experience that we're sharing with the listeners in a very real way."
Wonderheim started out as a group of 3 creative guys who decided to come together and create something fantastical. Aaron J. Morton, Matt Morton (not related), and Seth McNamar announced Wonderheim's existence in a video called "Welcome to Wonderheim" on Christmas of 2011. Since then, we've been putting our minds to the task of making music and videos to entertain and inspire.
In late march 2012, we released our first music video on youtube, "Dreams and Nightmares".
Halfway through the production of the "Dreams and Nightmares" project, we found our original drummer, Brittany Morgan! Soon after, Emma Hardin Joined as a Cellist/Vocalist. The five of us went forward with recording the rest of our first EP. The process of making the EP took more than 16 months to complete, but we're very excited about the end result!
Our group has evolved even more during the post-production of the EP, we've waved goodbye to a couple of the members Brittany Morgan, and founding member Seth McNamar as they have moved on to pursue their life dreams.
Our new drummer, Daniel De La Vega has stepped in with sticks flying and has added energy to the group. As Wonderheim continues to evolve, we hope we can continue to create better and better content for our fans.
There's a lot of new stuff going on around here, so join us!
