Easy13 Biography

Easy (Adjective)
Free from worry or anxiety; "knowing that I had done my best, my mind was easy"
Not an unlucky number, but associated rather with the customary "extra item" (Something More)

After selling much less then 13 million albums since their debut album in 2005 (12 million 999,000 less to be exact). Easy 13 are releasing their second studio album entitled Slowburn. The self produced album, recorded at Key Demo Studios and mixed and mastered at award winning Lakewind Sound Studios, features 10 original songs and includes 2 bonus tracks ( “Whistle Up” and “Whistle Down” ).

The record's first single "Something More “ was released to radio in May, 2008. The single sticks to the straight forward guitar rock format Easy 13 are known for. With some twists and turns to tease the brain, the single was written and recorded in the darkest of rooms with the brightest of lights. The duo of Alton MacKinnon and Chad Bennett had to dig deep and cut ties with reality to produce all tracks on this record. Long nights, restless days and several location changes afforded enough upset to enhance creativity. The cohesiveness of Slowburn shows growth and maturity in both musicianship and songwriting talents. The album easily transitions from driving rockers like " I’m Not Alone " to strong ballads such as “ Without You”.

Easy13 plan to build upon the successes of their debut album “Overflow”, which produced 3 singles. The first , “Threw Me Away” released to radio in July, 2005 was a #1 single on the East Coast Countdown, charted nightly on K94 Radio top 9@ 9 and landed at #85 for the top 100 songs of 2005 on K94 radio. Easy13 ‘s second single "How To Kiss" along with "Threw Me Away " both advanced to the second round of judging in the rock category at the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville TN . These songs were chosen from over 15,000 entries from around the world. “How to Kiss” also charted on the East Coast Countdown and landed at #7 on the K94 radio Hot 30 and #1 on the top 9@9. The release of the third single “Without a Trace” continued to bring success with a #1 showing on the East Coast Countdown.

“ It’s OK to believe in yourself, achieve your goals and have fun at the same time.”
John Leon

"I love it when a band surpasses expectations with a follow-up CD...and that's what Easy 13 has done with Slowburn. I was a big fan of Overflow and was glad to see that the band continued to expand their sound for the latest release"
