Hailing from Raleigh, NC, American Aquarium’s southern musical perspective is a blend of honest songwriting, an unwavering work ethic, and a genuine love of rock & roll. Whether you call it alt-country, Americana, or roots rock, one thing is for certain: Their music is a fresh voice that borrows from many forms of the American songbook. 25-year old songwriter and band leader, BJ Barham, brings songs to the five other band mates who breathe life into a performance that is equal parts Springsteen-esque rock bravado, old-school country lyrical heartbreak, and indie-rock introspection. From the college coeds to tattooed bikers and hipsters, the band has demonstrated their ability to cross boundaries. With 5 years, 5 albums, and over 700 shows under their belts, American Aquarium is the continuance of the road warrior meets studio craftsman ethic that has long been a part of the rock & roll and country music cultures. They are a band and crew that spend their lives between a van with no air-conditioning and stages all across the country. Their collaboration forms a wholly new and polished version of what Americana might start to look like in the years to come.
THE CERNY BROTHERS:
The Cerny Brothers have been playing music together since they were just young bucks, coming up together in a rural Illinois town. While the music itself has taken on different forms over the years, it has always had one simple and cellular foundation in which it is firmly based: brotherhood. That's right; there are no gimmicks or posturing to be found here. Their kinship is legitimate. It's one that has stood up against the test of time, carrying them from their adolescent and early adult years in the Midwest, to their long journey west to their current base, Los Angeles.
After initially performing as a duo, the brothers were honored to welcome drummer Cody Fontes and upright bassist Gabe Davis to the family. In 2012 the band worked nonstop, playing over sixty shows, embarking on two tours, and returning home to Illinois to record a Daytrotter Session. The band couldn’t be more excited for what lies ahead in 2013, especially the release of their new album.
Recorded in the small farming community of Ojai, CA, The Cerny Brothers teamed-up with producer Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros hit record "Here") for their second album. On their sophomore effort, The Cerny Brothers embraced a more stripped down and exciting sound that not only reintroduces them as a band, but captures the striking energy that can be found at any Cerny Brothers live show. It's raw, it's driving, and it finds it's home in truths that are unique to each and every listener.
The Cerny Brothers play music that inspires a sincere and genuine connection between them and their fans – a connection that is unique, timeless, and simply cannot be ignored.
"One minute you're pulled into a frenzy that makes you want to jam out and stomp your feet, then you're thrown back into a whimsical reflective state. This band delivers great energy, style and sincerity." -ReallySF Blog
