Bio

Prehab began life in the 1990's playing as the Bedspins along Tempe Arizona's Mill Ave and touring the Southwest. For almost five years between 1993 and 1998, the band logged more than 500 live shows preforming energizing sets of mostly original songs. The Bedspins became a songwriting machine working under producer Andy Barrett of Gin Blossoms and Stevie Nicks fame. They almost never played the same set twice as they were always adding new songs, sometimes on a per-show basis. In the late 90's the group disbanded and had very little contact for almost a decade.

 

In 2007 dramatic events pulled the former band-mates back together. After some reminiscing and several rounds of drinks a plan was hatched. The band would get back in the rehearsal room to assemble songs with the goal of landing a publishing deal. This initial plan ignited the recording of One Is Too Many (A Thousand Is Never Enough) Released by Aahshaw Records ( 2009 ) The record was well-received and reviewed locally landing the band live shows and drawing enthusiastic crowds. 

 

Soon the band was back rehearsing and writing new material. In the summer of 2012 the band hopped a plane to Memphis to record at Ardent Studios with John Hampton (White Stripes, The Replacements, Gin Blossoms) After additional recording and mixing Adam Ayan ( Nirvana, Foo Fighters, NIN, Keith Urban) mastered the record at Gateway sound. The result of everyone’s collective efforts is the new Aahshaw Records EP “I Haven’t Been Completely Honest” (2013)

 

Shortly after completing the EP long time drummer Jeff Bourne left the group to explore other opportunities. After several weeks of auditions the band welcomed Phillip Rhodes (Gin Blossoms) to the fold. Phil brings years of experience as a platinum selling artist, performer, and songwriter to band as well as a sense of humor that is a perfect fit.

 

The first single “Not Coming Home” is currently receiving regular airplay locally after being heavily requested then added to 93.9 KWSS in August 2013.  “Not Coming Home” as well as “Liar Liar” and “False Horizon” are currently in rotation on over 68 college radio stations such as WMCX,KMNR,WONY,KQAL,WUMF,WVYC etc.  The bands official video for “Not Coming Home” was released in fall and now has over 6000 views. Prehab’s music has also been featured on PlayboyMexico.com, thebabespot.com, Almost Famous Film Festival and Dailymotion.com where the song “Freaky” has over 218,000 views. The band’s music was most recently used in fashion line Diego Milano’s winter 2013 ad campaign. More singles, videos and live dates will follow for all of 2014.

"Highlights of the EP include “Last Time,” an aching reminder that it’s always been a thin line between the alternative-country scene and the tender side of the Replacements catalog"  -Ed Masley Arizona Republic

“Prehab One is Too Many (A Thousand Is Never Enough) Self-Released If Prehab's One is Too Many (A Thousand Is Never Enough) sounds a little too polished to be a debut, there's good reason. The guys spent five years as The Bedspins in the mid-90s, racking up 500 shows and serving as songwriters for the producer behind Tempe's Gin Blossoms. They broke up, as bands are wont to do, and stayed that way until a mutual childhood friend died of a brain hemorrhage. After seeing each other at his funeral, they thought it might be cool to get the band back together. After a few other twists and turns -- events that forged their new identity as a drug concept band -- they guys eventually reunited and, musically, pretty much picked up where they left off. All those detractors of the country-tinged pop-rock of Mill Ave scene are going to: a) hate b) loathe c) despise this band, but I really dig them, even if they're doing a style of music pioneered by The Eagles and (arguably) perfected in Tempe"

"Been a busy week with CMJ in town but I wanted to share this video we received today.  The band is Prehab from Phoenix, Arizona and their straight up rock sound of ‘Not Coming Home’ has been stuck in my head since I first heard it." - Indie Band Guru
