From West Palm Beach, Florida, Solstice Reign's popularity continues to grow locally and regionally. This 5 member rock band evokes the Classic, Southern and Mellow Rock sounds of the past with a new, contemporary style.
Originally formed as a Christian band in early 2007 by David Hietapelto, Keyboardist and Lead Singer who wrote most of the songs on their debuting CD, Solstice Reign changed direction and has transformed themselves into a modern, contemporary band with music and lyrics influenced by many different genres.
"Six Feet Under" is the band's first full length album released in early Nov. 2011 at the annual Deland Original Music Festival. Self produced, this ambitious band debuted their release to accompany their two previously released music videos, "Crash" and "Wasted Time" which can be seen on YouTube (and on this EPK).
Nominated in 2010 by the Songwriter's Showcases of America (SSA) for Band Of The Year, Song Of The Year (Back Roads) and Songwriter Of The Year (David Hietapelto), they reached the top 10 Finalists in all three categories. In 2011 the band was also nominated again for Band Of The Year, reaching the top 10 Finalist once again and another single from the album, "Live Together" was nominated for 2011 Song Of The Year by the SSA as well.
"Live Together" is already getting airplay with "Just Songs", a Canadian website for songs with social conscious themes from unsigned and Indie artists. It is also under consideration to be placed in a compilation CD by this production company to be distributed world wide. "Live Together" is also playing on 104Indie Radio L.A. and DigiVegas Podcast in Las Vegas.
Already having played in esteemed and popular events such as The Deland Original Music Festival, The Miami Music Festival and their hometown fair, the highly attended South Florida Fair in West Palm Beach to name a few,
Solstice Reign also plans on promoting their original music, music videos and debut CD in select venues and festivals in Florida in 2011 and then venture out to the mid Atlantic states, the east coast, southern states and the midwest in 2012. As they are released, the music videos will air on the band's YouTube, Facebook and Myspace fan sites as well as internet & TV stations that have expressed interest in showcasing them. Also, they will be appearing on internet radio and TV interview shows in the upcoming months.
