Band - Evolocity
The name implies a
melding of evolution and velocity; and for good reason. e(v)olocity is a
high-impact band that presents a step forward in the growth and
development of hard rock and alternative music.
Furthermore, e(v)olocity is a veritable hydra of musical interests and
influences. After initially forming in their native state of Vermont,
vocalist Aaron and guitarist Jazz soon decided on a move to Phoenix,
Arizona, along with the addition of keyboardist Raydn1, bassist Melon and
drummer Cor(e) for the creation of e(v)olocity.
When asked to describe e(v)olocitys sound, Aaron says, We have a sound
that is originally familiar. If you like rock music, its hard not to dig
us. We offer something for everybody. Ive had people say to me I usually
hate this kind of music, but your band is fantastic.
ev)olocity is the sum of many unique parts. Cor(e) asserts that "Each of
us is a product of our influences, but our influences and musical tastes
differ so greatly. Jazz adds, You can hear strokes of color from our
influences, but in the end, it's an entirely new sound.
Indeed, the diverse influences certainly come through in e(v)olocitys
sound, as the band seamlessly combines melodic pleasantries with
thunderous hard rock. As Raydn1 puts it, e(v)olocity music is organized
confusion. This musically-prismatic powerhouse packs a unique sound that
will draw comparisons to artists as diverse as Tool, Sevendust and Faith
Hard work and great music are winning e(v)olocity a solid fan base. The
band has won sponsorships from Jagermeister, Kronik Energy Drink and
Hellion Industries clothing. e(v)olocity has already shared the stage with
heavy hitters like Velvet Revolver, Breaking Benjamin, 10 Years and Hurt.
With appearances at several notable festivals, participation in the
National Zippo Hot Tour Competition and having their music added to over
200 college radio stations in 2005, only greater things can be expected
when their first single Too Far soon heads for radio. e(v)olocitys eponymous debut was produced and engineered by Bill Kennedy
(Megadeth, Nine Inch Nails, Filter). It features mixing by Toby Wright
(Korn, Alice In Chains, 3 Doors Down) and John Gray (Soulfly).
