Wandering Lies

Wandering Lies

Wandering Lies is a female-fronted rock band based out of the Washington, DC Metro area. By combining their do-it-yourself work ethic, and unwavering dedication with a signature sound, singer Angie Pepa, rhythm guitarist Noli Conty, lead guitarist David Chaletzky, bassist Myk Menez, and Drummer Jason Brooks are paving their own road to success.

Their debut 5 song EP was recorded at the legendary Bias Studios (Dave Mathews Band, Chuck Brown, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The O'Jays) in Springfield, VA, produced by Ken Barnum (33 West, Ballyhoo, The Pie Tasters), and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, Ringo Starr, The Arctic Monkeys, Marilyn Manson).

Wandering Lies has been featured in Northern Virginia Magazine, Artists Reach, and Sea of Tranquility.

"The glory days of female-fronted Grunge and today’s more appealing Alternative/Rock efforts has made an epic crossbreed under a group collective called Wandering Lies. This band brings all the goods: exceptional songwriting structures, non-repetitive vocal rasps and lyrical outbursts, grungy and crunchy guitar riffs and Amp EQs, and apresence and sound that is the farthest thing from a letdown. If they stick to this signature sound, then they have no worries in the least. Because a band with a sound like Wandering Lies is a rare find, and a real gem of a discovery; and I can’t stress that enough." --- Justyn Brodsky, Artist Reach

There's a rare but rewarding treat for music scribes: Very occasionally we'll witness a garage band that actually grows into a remarkably mature act with a dedicated following and the potential to move into the big leagues. From the beginning Wandering Lies has worked relentlessly to perfect their craft – rethinking and reworking and refining their all-original tracks, yet never losing the passion and the raw emotion that was their genesis. The result is an act that must surely be on the brink of considerable commercial success. The style is a grungy, female-fronted, alternative rock. There's an organic 2-guitar / bass / percussion lineup with no keys and, mercifully, no electronica. At the heart of the music is front-woman and occasional third guitarist Angie, whose heart is unashamedly exposed on her sleeve and whose raw expressive delivery defines every track. Key to the instrumentation is a drum-tight rhythm section, offset with pleasing solos and fluid guitar work. It's a timeless classic sound yet Wandering Lies manages to keep it relevant to the modern era. The garage band has emerged from its chrysalis. The songwriting is solid, the EP is professionally engineered, the band's stage performances are impressive, and the sum of the parts is a rewarding listen that will please discerning music fans. Don't be surprised if you see Wandering Lies in a stadium near you sooner than later. -- Duncan Glenday, Sea of Tranquility

Described as "frantic, gutsy, energetic, grungy, no-bullshit punk rock", Accidents are not an act for the weary. They started partying in May of 2010, and haven't even remotely slowed down. From melodic pop punk tunes to grunge anthems, Accidents reflect a variety of musical influences in their songs. Having developed a loyal fan base in the DC area, Accidents like to use their popularity for a good cause, as Cher Horawitz would put it; organizing shows for charities such as City Year, The Paw Project, and Pink Jams to name a few. The band's hard work has earned them headlining slots in the area's top venues, such as 9:30 Club, Rock and Roll Hotel, The State Theater, Empire and Jammin Java, as long as supporting major touring acts such as Andrew WK, The Misfits, DRI, and Emery. You should totally come check out a show, grab a beer or five, and jump in the pit. Accidents like to party.
