Feeling a bit camera shy


We could write an elaborate bio with crafty analogies, but we’d rather let the demo speak on our behalf. Our rapid beginning, instant success, and the constant buzz and positive feedback that followed our first show (a mere 4 weeks after our initial hello’s) led us to the name The Public Review, or TPR, as our growing fanbase has already nicknamed us.

The Public Review formed in flurry of coincidental circumstances in October 2005.

TPR started when wizardesque musician Wes Moore (GUITAR) met fellow Yorktown native rockstar Bradford Dobbs (DRUMS). The two quickly clicked and began an improvisational jam on University Avenue in Muncie outside of TIS bookstore. To the new friends' surprise, many-a sorority sister began to dance and grind on Bradford's drums. The boys knew they were on to something.

Kurt Page (BASS,) some guy from Columbus, was walking around figuring stuff out, and happened to run into the scene. Kurt, naturally ignoring the sexually motivated croons from the sisters, was into the music he heard, and began jamming with Wes and Bradford in Wes's Basement. The two were now 3.

Alexander Hall (VOCALS,) who had recently opened for national recording stars Anna Nalick, Tyler Hilton, and Aaron Carter, was hosting an open mic session on University Ave 7 days later. Bradford and Wes entered the show, and played 3 songs with a sign on the drumset that read "WE NEED A LEAD SINGER." Naturally, Alex, Brad and Wes discussed the matter afterwards.

5 days later, in Wes's basement the four musicians, each feeding of the contrasting styles of the others, created the song "Can't Go," literally instantaneously. The cosmos sighed. The Public Review was born.
