""I became not only their Producer, but a fan.""

"As we got deeper into the early production stages of the Black Tie Stereo EP, I realized that the band was composed of excellent songwriters, and they were only scratching the surface of their catalog of originals and their potential. I became not only their Producer, but a fan of Black Tie Stereo." - Carl Canedy

""When I received their CD, I couldn't decide which of their songs to use. I liked them all.""

"The Black Tie Stereo EP is among the 2014 year's best local releases. It was one of those records (Black Tie Stereo EP) that when I received it I couldn't decide which song to play on my local radio show that I host because I liked them all. I think that Black Tie Stereo is a talented young band. I like the melodies in their songs. I also like the production value on the self-titled EP." - Alan K. Stout

Black Tie Stereo EP (July 2014)



Scranton, Pennsylvania-based four-piece Black Tie Stereo have been bringing their indie-pop flair to the music world since 2014. Members Stephen Murphy, George Pachucy, Aaron Kovalich, and Jesse Morvan have been performing together since their high school days and evolving their sound ever since.

The group released their debut self-titled EP in 2014; a fervent and definitive expression of all of the members’ influences. Their sophomore EP, DoYOU, was released in Fall 2017, produced by Mark Mazzetti (A&R and production for Sting, Janet Jackson, John Mayer) and recorded and mixed by Brian Scheuble (U2, Sheryl Crow, Elton John). Their latest releases, “Cracked Screens” and “Could You Be Mine” are the band’s first ventures into self-production, utilizing the vast experience learned in their previous releases. Their newest single, "Somebody Like You" was released on 7/3/19. They have since started a fundraising effort to record in Chicago with producer Marc McClusky (Weezer, Sia, Motion City Soundtrack) in September. More new music is expected by the end of the year. 

The band has racked up some impressive accolades over the years, including Best Pop/Top 40 Act at the Steamtown Music Awards in 2016 and Best Live Performer in 2018. Additionally, they’ve played a variety of festivals, including FuzzFest in Scranton, PA, Penn State’s THON, and Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA, and have opened for acts such as Milky Chance, Panic! At the Disco, Weezer, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, K.Flay, and Lewis Del Mar.
