Biography

Remy Balon is a Brooklyn based musician, originally from a small corn field town in Southern Ohio. Grandson of a former big band musician and pianist, he was raised on music from the late 70s and later took influence from such acts as Elliott Smith and Ryan Adams. Remy had two songs, "Black Hearts" and "Chad's Favorite Song" (a "Defiance, Ohio" cover) featured in the 2007 Oscar Nominated Film "Half Nelson" and one song on the accompanying Lakeshore Records soundtrack. Today, Remy plays with band mates Jayme Elterman (Cello, Vocals) and Mike Presta (Drums) and Josh Burnett (Piano) to create a beautifully low-fi acoustic folk rock sound that showcases those Ohio roots. Remy released "The Silhouettes EP" on April 27th 2010 and is planning a Summer 2010 tour, followed by a Fall 2010 Full Length Release.
