Amplaphi's sound can be described as well rounded rock 'n' roll with memorable melodies, strong vocals, driving guitar work and a very versatile rhythm section. Each member's talent collectively ensures that Amplaphi will be a well known name upon today's rock scene.

Formed in Burton, Michigan, a small town just outside of Flint, in the summer of 2004. After just a few rehearsals, it became very clear, that collaborating with one another was like second nature. The upcoming sessions would ultimately become the songs that you can hear on the bands debut EP, entitled "Thorns". And from that point, songwriting became what Amplaphi would strive for, for years to come.

A song is a glimpse into someone else's life. You may not be able to see it, but you can still experience what the feelings were inside that person at the given time. It's like everyday life translated into music.

The band features the heartfelt vocals and the ever diverse guitar work of Singer/Guitarist Japheth Boivin, the heavy hitting drums of John Cronkright, and the tasteful creativeness of bass player Jeff Cronkright.

The bands influences range from bands such as 3 Doors Down, Default and Theory of a Deadman to bands like A Perfect Circle, and Mad at Gravity.

Amplaphi recently finished an independently released CD entitled "Make Amends".

The new album was done 100% by the band, from recording, editing and mixing, to the album design and the manual packaging of the discs.

Make Amends benefits from strong songs. Thorns definitely served it's purpose, but Make Amends is a step in a new direction, one that shows the bands creativeness and diversity.

The three members have put their whole hearted effort into this band, to fulfill their passion for writing and playing music. Amplaphi have put together their years of music experience and their diverse tastes for all types of music, and have come up with something that appeals to a wide range of listeners.

Amplaphi's tasteful blend, of melodies, and hard rock riffs, give a time to shine to each member, and also make for an energetic and captivating live performance. Amplaphi is here to showcase their feelings and emotions through their music.
