Marcella Rose is an Alternative Punk band based out of Pembroke Pines, Florida. The original beginnings of the band came from its two founders, John Fox and Angel Estremera. The two had been childhood friends and formed a tight bond in high school through their love of punk rock music.
Though John had only played piano while growing up, he decided to learn guitar after playing "I Miss You" by Blink 182. With Angel primarily playing the bass guitar, they jammed with local drummers throughout high school and even played as a three-piece band for a few shows. Through a local church group, Angel found Brandon Cross, and he auditioned for the band as lead guitarist. Instantly winning over his fellow musicians with the skills acquired to achieve shredding licks, he joined.
In December 2009, the first solid lineup was initiated. John sang lead vocals and played rhythm guitar, Angel held it down on the bass and backup vocals, Brandon shredded on lead guitar, and Emily Bloch played drums. Marcella Rose finally had the pieces in place to start spreading their uniquely melodic sound to the masses.
Through the remaining year of 2010, Marcella Rose began to play at various venues and house shows around South Florida. By then, the band was ready to get their first few song ideas out on a CD. In the fall of 2010, they recorded their first EP, The Lumberjack EP, in Atlanta, Georgia, at Stonehenge Recording which is home to various recording artists like Chris Brown, Will.I.Am, Ne-Yo, R-Kelly, Jennifer Hudson and many more. Though, in late 2010, due to differences in musical direction, Marcella Rose and Emily Bloch parted ways. However, when one door closes, another one opens. After her departure, the band immediately auditioned for new drummers, and after many auditions they choose Kameron Hunter, a local drummer and former high school classmate.
Marcella Rose worked very hard in 2011 playing shows anywhere and everywhere. The lineup was beginning to click and create great chemistry, and the band released a second EP in 2012 entitled Fall Into the Sun, which was their first collective set of musical compositions. In June 2012 Marcella Rose released their first music video for the song “Solitude,” recorded by the well-known and very talented video group at NHN Productions.
Marcella Rose is influenced by a very interesting variety of musical artists. Lead singer John Fox says his main influences are the harmonies of Blink 182 and the heavy chugg of System of a Down. Bassist Angel Estremera's driven bass style comes from his love of Blink 182, the Smashing Pumpkins, and late 90's Alternative Rock. Guitarist Brandon Cross' says his influences stem from his love of Synyster Gates shredding, blended with a bluesy, Jimi Hendrix tone. Drummer Kameron Hunter loves indie music and loves to smash on his drum set with the angst of teenage hardships.
Currently, Marcella Rose is hard at work on their first full-length album, which was recorded in December at Emissary Studios in Orlando. It is anticipated to be released at the end of May, 2013.
