Biography

What if you took the drummer from AC/DC & singer from Peter Criss' CRISS and put them together with a girl that's shared stages with Cheryl Crow, Kenny Loggins, & Joe Cocker? "ECOTONIC"!

"ECOTONE" by definition is "a place where two or more biological systems collide".

Sonically, they're "Slammin' Pop" meets "Heavy Rock", though they also have the ability to break it all down acoustically.

ECOTONIC is a description of the place "where two or more musical styles collide." And That's what you'll Hear

ECOTONIC was officially born on 04-05-06, though the new super-charged line-up was came together in Summer 2007. With both an acoustic and an electric side, they cover many sides of musicality, from driving Rock & Roll Songs like their brand new positive Rock Anthem "LIVE" to acoustic based etherial rock. They get Musical diversity by using alternate open tunings and plush vocal harmonies. It's all about the Song, Delivery, and Presentation. and musicality of the moment with a certain similarities to what's going on in the current pop rock music culture.

Recently featured at Music Connection Magazine's "Best Kept Secrets" Showcase at the Gig in Hollywood, they've been dubbed a 'Fleetwood Mac meets Audioslave' following an acoustic based performance at the Viper Room.

Jason Ebs comes from a rock & roll background, having toured with Peter Criss (KISS) as lead singer/guitarist for "CRISS" during the 'Bad Boys of KISS' tours of 1995-1996 (a double-billing with Ace Frehley's band). Originally from New Jersey & Philidelphia area, he's also played with Terri Nunn's BERLIN. Ebs brings the ROCK.

Janea Chadwick comes from more of an Acoustic Folk and R&B background whose main influences were Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, and Stevie Wonder. Hailing from Santa Barbara, she's written songs and worked with producer Jay Graydon, and has toured with Kenny Loggins, Joe Cocker, Sheryl Crow, and many others. She has a hauntingly beautiful voice with the right mix of delicacy, balls, and sass. Janea brings the FOLK.

World Renown drumming legend Chris Slade (AC/DC, The Firm, Manfred Mann's Earth Band) is on drums and brings his mammoth beats to the mix. He also brings the ROCK!

Daniel Schiffer rounds out the sound on bass guitar. With his drop D feel and positive energy, he holds down the bottom and brings thumping energy, while his personality brings a natural balance to the band.

Their sound combines the best of Rock & Roll, Blues, Funk, and Folk in both an Electric and Acoustic forum. It's delicately heavy, with elements of Led Zeppelin meets Heart meets Audioslave meets Alice in Chains with a touch of Evanescense.

ECOTONIC is currently in the studio recording their first 2 full length CD's targeting a Spring/Summer 2007 release. The ELECTRIC CD is complete, entitled "ELECTRIFIED" while the ACOUSTIC CD "OUT OF THE ASHES" is being completed. However, a stroke of creativity has hit them and they've begun recording new electric material withnew songs such as "LIVE" and "LASHING OUT". Ebs is recording & producing both CD's at his Los Angeles based studio "KINKY ORGAN MUSIC".

from jam 8-7-07, typed Sept 13 2007
Fighting back at devastation
Revolution Kills
Innocence is lost in glory
Never ending tragic story
Warring brings on desecration
Battle of the wills
Disagreements spark the fire
Watch the flames get higher,
------------CHORUS------------
I won’t Lay Down, I won’t Lay Down
I won’t Lay Down, in their bed of lies
We won’t Lay Down, We won’t Lay Down
We won’t Lay Down, in their bed of lies
------------Verse II------------
Terrorism blindly fights by
Killing innocence
Led by ignorant instruction
Leaving behind mass destruction
Spreading thoughts of freedom by the
Ones that know it well
Overcome the tyrant leaders
Send ‘em back to hell
------------ CHORUS ------------
I won’t Lay Down, I won’t Lay Down
I won’t Lay Down, in their bed of lies
We won’t Lay Down, We won’t Lay Down
We won’t Lay Down, in their bed of lies
------------BRIDGE------------
Wo-ooh-oh, Thank all our heroes, Wo-ooh-oh!

Democratic, Independent, or Republican
Doesn’t matter what you are
We’re all American

------------2 X music, enter verse…………..

Why be a human, followin’ all the lies
Step outside your box of circles, now it’s time to realize
You got a lot to give, and more to loose
Afraid to fill some bigger shoes?
Come inside, the water’s fine
Take off the rope while you loosen the noose

------------ CHORUS------------

Because I’m so Ready
So Ready, I can almost taste it
I’m so Ready
So Ready, I’m Ready to blow your mind
------------2nd VERSE------------

Time and Time and Time again
You’re not livin’ the now, you live in the when
If life is like a box of chocolates
Then eat it up like it never will end
You got a lot to give, with little to loose
Did somebody loosen up that noose?
Grab hold of your chair, and take in the air
And Brace yourself as we roll into you
-----------CHORUS------------

Because I’m so Ready
So Ready, I can almost taste it
I’m so Ready
So Ready, So Ready I can hardly stand it
I’m so Ready
So Ready, I can almost taste it
I’m so Ready
So Ready, I’m Ready to blow your mind
