WAKING JONAH WIDE AWAKE:

 

After something of a false start in the Spring of 2008, Waking Jonah is finally in a groove and on a roll recording their debut album. A year ago Waking Jonah became the only unsigned band to be included in ARfm's A-List rotation with their track "Breaking Down". Then in early 2009, the band was voted the #5 Best Unsigned Band of 2008 at AlternativeAddiction.com on the strength of that track alone.

 

Now, finally, Waking Jonah is deep in the trenches recording what will be their debut album. The band has written 12 songs for the album with the best 10 making the final cut. The band is currently about halfway through tracking drums/rhythm guitars with an eye to be finished recording/mixing by July. "We are really excited about the material we came up with...", says vocalist Shawn Pelata (also lead singer for the band Line Of Fire). "To our ears, there is a good variety without really straying from what we feel Waking Jonah is and we can't wait for people to hear it." Guitarist Stephen Chesney adds, "The response to 'Breaking Down' has been unreal and we can't thank everyone enough!"

 

Waking Jonah is Pelata, guitarist Stephen Chesney, drummer Jeremy Thomas (formerly of Stickboy) and keyboardist Keary Reid with songs penned by the songwriting team of Chesney/Pelata. To hear the original demo for "Breaking Down", head on over to www.myspace.com/wakingjonah and check it out. Look for more info in the weeks/months to come.

Dude first of all, you've got a great voice! Song sounds good, it's like the big hooks and vocal harmonies of LOF, but with an alternative/modern flavor. Great stuff man! :tumbsup:
