Come have a drink with the Faultline crew and let’s talk shop!
Combining instruments such as harmonica, accordion and keys over a double dose of guitar, bass and percussion, BURNriverBURN is a five-piece with a sound unique within the hard rock genre. In the face of the shear magnitude of their drop-tuned riffs rise the vocals of front man John Paterson who both hearkens back to a time when hard rock was just emerging and blazes a trail for the next generation to follow. Drummer Kevin Amann and bassist Dan Knight take the band through the elevations of each song like a locomotive pulling a train thought a mountain pass while guitarists Chuck Howell and Ray Morgan paint the ever-changing scenery with epic chord progressions, sanguine melodies and incendiary solos.
The name BURNriverBURN, coined by Howell, is a reference to Cleveland, Ohio and it’s infamous burning river the “Cuyahoga” which, due to massive dumping, was accidentally set ablaze several times in the late 60’s prompting the creation of the EPA.
This moniker is also a testament to the seemingly contradictory levels of pride and humility that engender most Clevelanders. Knight and Howell are no exception. Just to the right of Ohio come Amann and Paterson who hail from Jamestown, New York and Philly respectively, while Ray Morgan, an ex-patriot from Tallaght-Dublin, Ireland is the group’s sole import.
BURNriverBURN is a true democracy with all five members contributing to the writing and arrangement of all songs as well as art and print media.
With enough years in the business to hone their skills and temper their egos, the five members of BURNriverBURN spearhead the conspiracy to bring good old hard
Rock-n-roll back to the forefront of modern music…
The record was mastered here at Faultline Studios by Starita and will be released TODAY, OCTOBER 21st at their cd release party. The party will start at 9pm with a $10 dollar cover which includes a copy of the cd and drinks….you can’t beat that!
