Biography

A New York based 4-piece rock band coming from total opposites of the musical spectrum. Each member’s completely different musical style is combined to create a sound truly their own. During their first 3 years together they began creating a buzz, and caught the attention of Rock Solid Music Group, which signed the group and in 2003 released the band’s debut CD “Wilted”. They've since been consistently touring in support of the release.

The CD was recorded from November ’02 to May ’03 at Millbrook Studio’s in New York. All 16 tracks were scrapped and the band started all over from scratch. The final product after months of frustration clearly speaks for itself. The band’s highly acclaimed live show and tour will run through out the summer and into the fall.

The group HUMAN X formed in Poughkeepsie, NY in the year 2000 and within 7 years a large following of true fans has formed. During this time the band has written 3 albums worth of material and survived the growing pains of a rock and roll band. HUMAN X have created and polished a live show, which excites fans and audiences from several age groups and musical tastes. HUMAN X is made up of 4 talented musicians with years of experience.

Lead singer TC brings a vocal style to the group that sets the band apart from any other. Growing up in Massachusetts and playing the Boston/Northeast scene, TC cut his teeth at age 16 and started playing in bands until forming Sudden Impact, which gained popularity and notoriety while performing with act’s such as John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band and multi-platinum act Extreme. When that project ended TC set out for NY where he formed the Trendies an act whose music was simply ahead of its time, followed by fronting the band Vibe Tribe (w/drummer Al Afusso) brother of Rob Affuso of Skid Row fame which led to tours, road work and interest from major labels. The group took a hiatus, never to reform. TC not one to give up on vision’s or dreams, continued and in 2000 formed the current project HUMAN X. TC’s influences include Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Chris Cornell formerly of Audioslave & Soundgarden respectively, and Steve Perry formerly of Journey.

Bassist Preslar was born and raised in new York City and his love of music began at age 4 when he would put on his moms Kiss "Destroyer" album and pretend to be Ace Frehley from Kiss or he would sing along to Pink floyd’s the wall album as well. When a music store opened up a block away from his home at age 12 Preslar went and bought his first electric guitar and started taking lessons. After a few months of playing guitar he switched to bass because his idol at the time Nikki Sixx was a bass player so he thought "why am I playing guitar when my hero is a bassist" So he made the switch and has evolved into one very solid and well rounded bassist! Preslar's previous musical projects include, The Brooklyn Queens Experiment, Grande, Ellen Road and Juniper Sky. Preslar's influences are: Flea, Steve Harris, Paul D'Amour,Roger Waters, Geezer Butler, Nikki Sixx and Sting.

Drummer Jiyo was born and raised in Beacon, New York and began playing at 7 years old, then at age 11 he got his first kit. In school bands he spent time taking lessons from world-renowned teacher Charlie Morana of the Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa fame. Jiyo studied and played big band and jazz. At age 15 he started playing with bands such as Mean Malin and the Soul Patrol, The Generation, Heavens to Mergitroid and Aunt Mary. Jiyo’s influences include Scott Rockenfield of Queensryche, Neil Peart of Rush, Peter Criss of Kiss and Stewart Copeland of the Police.

Lead Guitar player DEITZ coming from the national band PANDEMIC is a great addition to this project. Having had instruction from guitar greats Neil Zaza, Reb Beach and Marty Friedman to being a runner up in the Guitar player from Hell (Hudson Valley New York) Deitz brings power, melody and tasteful songwriting to the plate. Influences include Neil Neil Zaza, Neal Schon, Gary Moore, Paul Gilbert and John Petrucci to name a few. Blending all of these together Deitz has his own very recognizable sound. DEITZ can write a riff to drive people crazy in seconds “Absolutely beating the Sh*t out of my guitars is my favorite thing on stage” says DEITZ.

The making of “Wilted” proved to be a challenge for the band as far as selecting material. There were many songs to choose from as the band continued to write more material during the making of this recording. Also add to the fact the first 16 songs were completely disposed of. Then the group decided to take a different approach on the recording technique and selection of songs.

Fans and audiences can relate to the songs as they describe everyday life and reality to humans. Songs like Words that describe relationships gone bad, discovering lies. Circles which describes everyday life and having a bad day. Wilted a song about life and time passing by.

Lyrics

I'll Get Away

Written By: Anthony K Culver

Verse 1
colored shades of gray
why do you show
dead numbers on a broken clock
that you'll never know
empty enclosures engaging in lustful demise
crawling through my skin
like a plague of lies
chrous
I'll just get away
I'll just get away
I'll just get away from you
verse2
holding hopeless thoughts of nothing
your eye's say it all, say it all
throw me to the lions
watch them tear me apart, tear me apart
you're tearing me
repeat chorus

Wasting

Written By: Anthony K Culver

verse 1:
I'm wasting my time
waiting for you
I'm wasting my time
thinking of you
I'm hoping to find
someone like you
chrous:
can it be that I am crazy
can it be that I'm insane
can it be that I'm not good for you
and I'm to blame, I'm so ashamed
verse 2:
I'm wasting my time
waiting on you
I hope you can see
what I'm goin through
repeat chorus
verse 3:
I'm wasting my time
dealing with you
I'm hoping youll see
that I'm through with you
chorus:
can it be that I'm not crazy?
it only means that your insane
can it be that your not good for me
and your to blame I'm so ashamed(repeated twice)

One last Breath

Written By: Anthony K Culver

verse1:
sometimes I try so hard for you
youve taken everything from me
like a cat and a mouse you chase me
I guess there is no escaping
look at what you've done and put me through
pre chorus:
I will breathe again
I will breathe yeah
verse 2:
you used your powers to hold me down
now your sorry that I'm not around
like a queen you've had all the power
now this is my final hour
now I'm the one who wears the crown
pre chorus:
I will breathe again
I will breathe
chorus:
one last breath, before your out of my life
one last kiss, and then we say goodbye
one more fight, to end it all
once more love has taken, taken the fall
verse 2:
sometimes I try so hard for you
you've taken everything from me
pre chorus:
I will breathe again, I will breathe
chorus:
one last breathe, before your out of my life
one last kiss, and then we say goodbye
one more fight, to end it all
once more love has taken, taken the fall
one last breath one last breath
