Biography

It all started the summer of 2004. The Moccasins, a local band with quite a tremendous reputation, slowly fell apart. Andrew Whitman went from rhythm guitarist for one of the biggest bands ever one minute, to solo singer/songwriter the next. Through a complex process of playing alone in his room and in front of his friend Deren, he slowly gained confidence. His first song performed live was Mary Joe, an interesting mix of reggae, terrible singing, and uncontrollable shakes of nervousness. Luckily he was at the Barrington Coffee House and didn't have to worry about being made fun of cause their so nice. A year later, with a few more songs under his belt, he began to teach his cousin Matt Lewis a few chords on the guitar. Little did he now that he was teaching a future songwriter. Only months after learning, Matt had already written a song, aptly titled "The Beat of Life". Dylan Iannitelli soon came into the picture when Andrew was searching for a bassist to accompany him at Elements Cafe. They fit beautifully. This same connection lead to Andrew asking Dylan's brother Zak to play drums on these new recording. All I can say is thank god for zak. You may be thinking that it can't get any better, but you're wrong. There was one more piece to the puzzle. Devin Monaghan - Vocalist, Melodicaist, Harmonicist, Mandolinist, Djembeist, Ukulelist, and Whistler. He filled all the holes. Recently, these men have recorded five songs with help of James Whitescarver and blixyz studios. With songs such as Honey, Never Felt This Way, and The Rap Song, it seems as if they are ready for anything. The CD should be ready in the next few weeks and ready for some listening and loving. We hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it. And that's about it. Also, much thanks to James Whitescarver, engineer and co-producer of all the songs that are up. He's the owner of the one and only blixyz studios stationed in Cinnaminson, NJ.
