Biography

At the ripe, young age of twenty-two, Alec Delphenich has begun to make his mark on the world as a talented songwriter and musician. Music was introduced to him at an early age and has long since played a major role in his life.

In late 2003, "Three Lights" was recorded in the young artist's bedroom. This gritty, independent release highlights more than Alec's guitar and voice. The songs "Four Months" and "Why I Laughed" feature other instruments such as alto saxaphone, flute, and djembe.

When all of his homework and chores are done, Alec gets to turn his focus back towards his music. Soon he plans to have released a second album as well as an EP with the trio he is a part of, the Alec Delphenich Trio.

With all of life's uncertainties, he will always have six strings, a piece of paper, and a pen to go back to at the end of each day.

THE TRIO:

The Alec Delphenich Trio was formed in 2006. With a sound that breaks the typical Dayton mold, their combination of acoustic, blues, and rock has people talking. Their relaxed improvisatory style and thought-provoking lyrics make this a group that appeals to many different audiences. From soulful ballads to upbeat jams, ADT continually offers an innovative and enjoyable sound.

Matt Seskevics...

is currently a percussion major at Wright State University and has played in numerous ensembles around Ohio. He has also put much time into composing pieces for high school marching bands as well as directing their drumlines.

Bass Players...

As a band we have probably spent more time teaching bass players our music than anything else. Since 2006 we have had four bassist. These include Jake Garnet, Jim Rohrer, and David VanOverloop. Currently Dennis Delphenich is filling the spot until we can get a hopefully more permanent bass player.
