"Rodney Noffsinger - Here I Am"

This is Regulation Nine - Changed name from Rodney Noffsinger to Regulation Nine in March 2013

I don't have a lot of experience with pop rock comparisons. So I can't say that Rodney Noffsinger sounds like so-in-so or I can hear an influence of whatshisname in this track. What I can say and know for a fact is that this is a solid track that has huge potential for massive airplay. It's commercial enough to make you want to hear more but not cookie cutter. And that's what I've done. After listening to a ton of tracks on his youtube and reverbnation, I want to see him live and buy his albums. They are a Nashville based band so you can hear a bit of Music Row influence to their music. If I had to make a stab at saying where I would place them, it would be somewhere in the vicinity of Shinedown and Staind. I don't know if that is an insult or a compliment but that's where my ear leads me.

Rodney is the son of a preacher and has spent his musical life running the gamut of styles and influences from Garth Brooks to Hip Hop to Grunge. His voice has this gritty edge to it that helps create this cool vibe and you can really hear him shine on his cover of Godsmack's "Voodoo" (Click here but then come right back). I think that with the combination of quality writing, his voice and good looks; they really have a strong shot of being something great. I would certainly buy their albums or vote for them on one of those talent shows. If you're looking for something a little more rock than what I normally feature, then this is totally where you need to be. Rodney Noffsinger and his amazing band have a great shot at being something big. Take a listen and let me know what you think in the comments.

Bio

Moving to Nashville from Alabama in the pursuit a solo Album, Rodney Noffsinger (lead vocals) attended a heavy metal show and met Lee Darby (drummer) and Jeffery Wall (bass). They became instant friends and over the next couple of months Rodney and Lee shared ideas. During this time Rodney decided to put a band together. He asked Lee if he knew of any musicians available that would give the band idea a shot. Lee said he would fill in as the drummer until Rodney found one. Jeff and Lee had known each other for many years so the bassist was a no-brainer. After several guitarists trying out, Lee stopped at a small bar to have a drink. Listening to a band playing, he noticed a different sound coming from the guitarist. Vincent Peer (lead guitar) was invited to a practice to try the band on for size. The band was ignited. They learned 9 covers to test their sound as a group on the public. This was well received. They wrote 6 original songs and learned 50+ cover songs to start playing to the masses. At first the decision was made to just have Rodney as the focused name on the project and Lee, Jeff and Vince would be the band. After they realized their unique sound was turning heads, that direction changed and Regulation Nine was born.

Regulation Nine consists of an energetic front man who commands your attention with his soulful, yet powerful rock voice, a drummer whose influences range from Hank Williams, Jr to The Cure, a solid bassist with an artistic flare & a classical and jazz turned rocker lead guitarist.

The band continues to write and record original music as well as continue to get airplay on Nashville’s Rock Station 102.9 The Buzz. This band has hit the ground running on the Nashville Music Scene and don’t plan to slow down any time soon.

“A long time veteran of the bar/small venue scene, they are currently in label discussions. Make no mistake, this Nashville based band can put the hurt on a set of speakers and likely will do the same to the music charts when its
inevitable breakthrough occurs.”-Michael Rampa High Octane Music News
