Thank You Scientist
For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today.
With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist's lineup of virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps of Non-Existent Places, in 2012, which caught the ear of Sanchez, a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band.
To pinpoint Thank You Scientist's sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship, fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training in both classical and jazz idioms.
A Frank Zappa for the indie generation? Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra? Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla? King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it's sure to satisfy your ears in the best of ways.
Page 9 is a Dallas, TX based quartet that is turning heads, worldwide. Armed with a unique hybrid sound of Powerpop and Alternative Rock, it's no wonder why singer- Josh Roa-Martinez, bassist- Lindan Scott, drummer- Anthony Goodman, and guitarist- Nathan Northcutt have a constantly broadening fanbase. The band has been consistently touring since 2008 when they released their debut full length, "Addiction In Recovery". Their first release helped them gain a nationwide audience through constant online promotion and a receptive audience who were yearning for a new sound.
So, when Page 9 entered the studio in late 2009/early 2010 with arising engineer Bryan David, their fans knew to expect something great. The band also enlisted the help of legendary producer John Naclerio (Brand New, Senses Fail, My Chemical Romance) to mix and master "Heartbeats & Citystreets" which the band says was "the perfect last piece of the puzzle" in what is an audibly stunning EP. Since the April 2010 release of "Hearbeats & Citystreets EP", Page 9 has seen an immense amount of success; scoring the band atop the Purevolume.com & Smartpunk.com music charts and putting the single "Crawl" among Purevolume.com's most downloaded tracks. The band has also been fortunate enough to share the stage and enjoy small runs with bands such as Jonny Craig (Rise Records), Cady Groves (Columbia Records), We Are The In Crowd (Hopeless Records), The Downtown Fiction (Photo Finish Records) and countless other national acts.
Page 9's continuous drive and their infamous devotion to their fans are merely the backbone in what make them one of the most promising up and coming acts.
