FALL BACK PLAN
PRESENTED BY CROW
BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE RHYTHM BUILDING at MUSIC ROW in NASHVILLE TENNESSEE and THERECORDSHOPNASHVILLE.COM
Formed in 2007 by veterans of the Baltimore/DC Rock scene, Fall Back Plan is on its way to the top of the regional rock food chain. Fronted by Donice Cully, this powerhouse alternative rock act is gaining recognition quickly for energetic live shows, tight song-craft, killer vocals and undeniable hooks.
FBP started in July of 2007 as a writing project between Donice, Geoff Gill (Bass) and Brian Shealey (Guitar) during a lull in their respective bands' schedules at that time. Donice was fronting The Sikes, a regional mainstay rock act and Brian and Geoff were members of the band KaliCeleste. The 3 met in 2006 when their bands would play shows together throughout Baltimore/DC.
When the band needed to round out the lineup, Brian and Geoff reached out to Ken Crawn, a local session drummer, and former member of KaliCeleste, Smoke and The Jordan Page Band. "After playing with several bands in the area, I knew this was the project I wanted to contribute to. All of the pieces were in place. My experience playing and writing with Brian and Geoff helped me fit right in. As far as Donice is concerned, I always admired her amazing talent, so it was a no-brainer for me to join this group."
The band entered Chesley Studios in Baltimore in October to record their debut songs, and have been mixing those tunes with Drew Mazurek at Highview studios. "I was excited to work with FBP," says Drew, "because they are open to new ideas and sounds and upon hearing the demos, I realized they are crafting guitar pop of the first order. I felt they had a solid rhythm section, creative guitar playing and sultry vocals.. think Gwen Stefani meets the Foo Fighters." FBP will release their debut record on February 1st, 2008 and will be touring nationally in support of that effort.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
