Biography

A Good Front is a Boston area based rock band, started in 2006 by singer/songwriter Gray Bouchard and guitarist Bryan Winter. Drummer/vocalist Alicia Cattaneo joined shortly thereafter, and A Good Front began to quickly pick up momentum all over the Boston metro.

Mixing a plethora of sounds is the key to the musical amalgam that the band is known best for. From pop to punk, alternative to blues, A Good Front delivers surprising changes of pace with every transition. The band is influenced by many different types of artists, and each member has their own listening style. Combining this with the collaborative nature of the band is what creates the unique sound.

Gray was raised on horrorpunk, his favorite holiday obviously being Halloween. His primary influences include driving force from The Misfits, the vocal harmonies from Queen, and the sultry smooth voice of Peter Gabriel.

Bryan’s guitar playing finds its roots in the blues. He idolizes the legendary Johnny Cash, but also finds some fanaticism in the eclectic music of The Dresden Dolls. The juxtaposition of the classic rock guitars and the synthesized keys are his specialty.

Alicia’s drumming style was cultivated in a home of endless musical choices. Growing up with a DJ as a father, she was constantly pushed to listen to every kind of music there is. Even though she finds her first love in rock and roll, she can’t deny the affair with R&B, afro-cuban, jazz, funk, and African rhythms as her drumsticks wander…

When you put these three together, there is no telling what’s going to come out of the PA. The songwriting is ever-changing, but always manages to hook the listener on a line, straight through the cheek.

Now, on the brink of releasing their first album in 2007, AGF is taking the steps to solidify an up and coming career in the music industry. While still being “unsigned,” AGF is using their “indie” status to their advantage, creating almost a cult following in the college scene of the Boston area. Keep a vigilant eye open, because A Good Front is making plans on taking the world by storm.
