So, are you ready for a big hot dose of hard rock candy? If the answer is yes, you’d better call Dealer.

The four-piece formed in Portland, OR in 2005 to represent as one of the few true rock influenced acts in its emo-obsessed hometown. Since then, Dealer has headlined top rock clubs all around the region, as well as being support act of choice for major promoters in the Northwest, playing bills with DOKKEN, Tracii Guns, the Pat Travers Band, Dangerous Toys and others. Add in two command performances for 1500 inmates at the Oregon State Penitentiary, and you've got a group that can rule any stage, anywhere.

Lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist/songwriter Karamy retired her all-female three-piece Sugar Free (which played numerous regional venues and events, including MusicFest NW, Skate Like a Girl in Olympia, WA, and many others) the previous year to bring in the boyz and charge up her high-energy formula with a harder-driving four-piece format. Lead axe man and Philly-area native, and Portland "Best Kept Secret" Dave Hakimoglu joined the band to unleash his virtuoso-level licks. Taking the group another level above the rock 'n' roll pack is the intricate rhythm mixed with percussive thunder of drummer Jeff Ross, also of the Portland electro-experimental act Chimpy. Rounding out the line-up currently is bassman Jeff Gaddette, also a member of the all-male Go-Go's tribute "We Got the Meat," and the long-time Portland act The Joy Wilson Band.

In December of 2005, Dealer released its debut, self-titled EP, currently being independently distributed online and in record stores throughout the Pacific Northwest. The band is heading into Opal Studios in Portland to cut a full-length album in 2007. The band is also currently scheduling its first West Coast tour for fall of ’07, with more national dates to follow.
