Feeling a bit camera shy


Emerging from the coast of Southern New England only two short years ago, alt rock's glimmer of hope Clones of Sam has swiftly captured a large and loyal fan base in a notably short time. While people often inquire first about their name, the defining characteristic of Clones of Sam is their music, by far. Recorded at the legendary Q Division Studios in Boston, their debut EP, You're Still Here, is a colorful journey into the mind and soul of lead singer/songwriter Rick Belluso. Led on by his unique, captivating voice, the listener is helplessly drawn into the cascading surge of love and pain that tenderly permeates each lyric on the album.

Similar to Weezer's Blue, every song on You're Still Here sounds refreshingly different from one another, while still sharing one distinct flavor. The album is filled to the brim with meaty guitars graced by delicate melodies, aggressive rock drumming drenched in soulful chic, driving bass lines laced with a funky, McCartney-esque flare, powerful, sincere vocals, and tons of catchy hooks.

Aside from the sheer marketability of their sound & image, Clones of Sam, like every great band, knows how to use the crowd’s energy to intensify their live concert. This has caught the attention of many, including radio station 95.5 WBRU. CoS was chosen out of 300 bands in New England to compete in WBRU's annual battle of the bands: the Rockhunt. The station also asked the band to support ATO recording artist JEM in a sponsored event last November.
