Feeling a bit camera shy


It all began in the city of Hawthorne Ca., 1996, when the first two members of Amittai Rise, Matt Chacon and Kirk Zamora, met through a mutual friend for a garage jam. Matt, a heavy metal, shredding, Metallica freak, and Kirk, a five string bass, R&B thumper discovered they had more in common than not. Little did they know that this meeting would create a spark that would ignite a five year manhunt for others of the same blood type, "Groove Positive". During those five years the two members went through a staggering number of auditions for drummers and singers. Their search continued with wavering intensity, leaving the band almost hopeless that they would never find future members to complete the delicate balance.

In 2001, the light emerged at the end of the tunnel. Kirk and Matt met up with Brian Sellner and Kenny McKenzie at the Oasis church in Los Angeles. Brian, a talented singer songwriter, had vocal roots with the sublime, reggae scene as well as a love for heavier styles of music. Kenny was a teenager with a passion for drums and a self taught style that was down, dirty, and deep into Hip-Hop.

The four aspiring musicians quickly took to the new objective; form a band representing their own beliefs with fierceness and drive to plunge deep into the future while singing the past. Although different in so many ways, their diversity led to a boiling point of new creation exploding with style and talent.

The four sided circle was complete and the next level of refinement began. The four hungry performers went into the studio after a year of collaborating and playing small gigs to create "Volume 1" of their music. It was an eleven tracks of the first material ever written by Amittai Rise. Being driven by perfection, the band quickly took "Volume 1" back into the studio to add more tracks and to attain the level of perfection they desired. Amittai Rise is currently playing all over the South bay and L.A. Do not be afraid to experience AMITTAI RISE.
