Buzzfactor's music is simultaneously cutting edge and classic. It grinds with classic rock appeal, punk rock energy and an organic melody driven pop sensibility. Another way to put it it, would be, if AC/DC were to have come out of Seattle in 1992!

Biography

Founded in Seattle in March of 2003, Buzzfactor has taken hard rock to a new level. Born out of frustration with past projects, and a desire to create something fresh and new, the band members came together with a singular vision: to fill the musical void that existed within themselves and on the radio. The chemistry between all four individuals created an atmosphere where ideas flowed easily and the songs were born rapidly. Buzzfactor passed their self recorded 6 song demo along to legendary recording engineer and producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Screaming Trees), who in turn offered to produce and record the band . The result is an album full of songs that are simultaneously cutting edge and classic. It grinds with classic rock appeal, punk rock energy and an organic melody driven pop sensibility.
The soaring soulful vocals of frontman Gene Devereaux, are reminiscent of the blues drenched rock singers of the 70’s, without all the theatrics. Guitarist Dusty Dobbs has the ability to mix monstrous, dirty riffs with a pinch of soulful funk, which gives the overall hard rock feel a refreshing twist. On bass, The Willis approaches the low end with an aggressive punk rock attack but keeps the groove sexy with a rock solid range of dynamics and an intense stage presence. Buzzfactor’s latest addition, drummer Keith Jaeger, both anchors and drives the band with an extremely heavy hand and a hard driving style that conjures up images of some of the great rock drummers of the classic rock era.
Accomplishments to date:
• Debut album recorded and produced by Jack Endino in 2004
• Airplay on 99.9 KISW "Loud and Local" music show (Seattle)
• Airplay on 104.9 KFNK (Tacoma/Seattle)
• Co-headlined the 2005 Layne Staley Tribute and Benefit show at the Showbox (by invitation)
Buzzfactor is recreating hard rock in their own image, and is fast becoming one of Seattle's hottest unsigned bands.
