Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Easy Thrill - Easy Thrill
Recommended if you like: Melodic, pop rock. Been told like we've sounded similar to indie rock bands, Green Day, Nirvana, foo fighters but that's just a handful of listeners.
Story behind your band/artist name: All of us have been pursuing music our entire lives and have had several acts and projects before we all met. I (Paul) knew a bassist (David) and happened to meet another guitarist/singer (Joseph) who found our drummer Brendan. All of us have wanted to make music our entire lives but lacked the ability and team to do so. When we all jammed together, we knew this one was for real. I (Paul) play guitar and sing, as well as write some of our songs with a more punk-ish heavy sound but with a melodic tune. Joseph also writes and sings/plays guitar with a more indie pop style. Fusing our two stylistic preferences together with the best drummer (Brendan) I have ever met locked us together. Having two singers who write different music with very different voices gives our band very different sounding songs, but it has proven to be a real asset for us. We searched many studios to find the right place for our debut EP after playing shows and practicing together for many months, and when we found Inner Ear studios, we knew it was the one. DC legend Don Zientara recorded and produced our EP, and it was one of the most proud experiences in my entire life. We put everything we had, time, money, and hundreds of hours of hard work on our EP and we want to show it to as many people as we can. Music is the most important thing to us. We somehow manage to balance all this with our studies (as we are all in college right now).
Band Members: Paul Riccio - (vocals + guitar), Joseph Allen (vocals + guitar), Brendan Lannig (drums) and David Dell'Isola (bass)
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Foggy Bottom
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1. Our drummer Brendan recorded all of the drums PERFECTLY for our EP in one take for almost every track.
2. Our bassist, David, has been known to wear a "Cow" onesie but usually works himself up to the point of a heat stroke and inevitably takes most of his clothes off.
3. We were almost called "the Vegans" but could not (thankfully) do so legally due to the volume of meat we consume at various local food (mostly microwaveable).
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: It would be an enormous blessing for a review, play, or anything you could do to get our music out.
Our most popular songs off our record are:
1. "Day by Day"
2. "Wild Hair"
But since we posted our music online "in the Rain" and "morning breath" have gotten a surge in attention.
