Jonny Craig began his singing career between the ages of 16-17 as the lead vocalist for Seattle based post-hardcore band Ghost Runner on Third in 2002.He received early praise with this new band’s debut EP, Speak Your Dreams. Allmusic.com stated that Craig was quote: “the band’s secret weapon, a passionate vocalist who doesn’t rely on the usual emo techniques (belligerent screaming, post-hardcore barking, whiny moralizing — that sort of thing) to put across his angsty lyrics. There’s not a bad track to be found here, but Craig tends to outshine his bandmates throughout.
Hailing from sunny San Diego, CA, SECRETS has already made an impact as one of the most promising up and coming acts in the scene. Armed with irresistibly catchy choruses, soaring vocals, and mercilessly dynamic breakdowns, its no wonder the post-hardcore five-piece has seen such success since signing to Velocity/Rise Records in the Spring of 2011.
Velocity Records' Dave Shapiro says, "When I heard these songs, I knew San Diego had yet another band that would be at the forefront of their genre." Rise Records' founder Craig Ericson is equally pumped on the signing, explaining, "Dave showed me the band and I immediately knew these guys were keepers."
SECRETS released their debut full length The Ascent (Produced by Tom Denney) in January of 2012 to rave reviews. The record debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and became the first Velocity Records release to crack the Billboard Top 200, debuting at #185. SECRETS will be touring heavily this Spring in support of the release, hitting the road with Sleeping With Sirens in March and April and then jumping right into the "This World Is Ours" tour in April and May with heavy hitters Attack Attack! and Escape The Fate.
