Biography

Selby's resolve to accomplish something less routine and generic has yielded them an ardent fan base and a sobering niche where vintage sound meets modern rock. Frontman Bahnz states, "We're after art that's smart, reminiscent of the modern rock/pop favorites, but with an emotion packed atmosphere that takes you somewhere unexpected". Selby's arrangements and hooks will take hearers back to The Beatles and early U2, but it's a bit darker, and is more aggressive. The guitar driven melodies accompanied by acute lyrics place their music somewhere between the arena style of U2, and the modern rock of the Foo Fighters. Over the last five years frontman, singer/songwriter Bahnz has toured most of fifty states and much of Europe backing other bands, and has resided in Nashville as a session player. It's no surprise that Selby was recently awarded sponsorship by Gibson Guitars.

Since Selby's inception in mid 2009, they have opened for national acts including Ryan Cabrera and Filter. At the Miami Music Festival they were chosen out  300+ bands to represent the festival with a live performance on NBC Miami, and headlined at Miami's premiere venue, Tobacco Road, to close the festival.  Currently The Golf Channel uses Selby song "Under My Skin" as the title track for their new series "Destination Golf" and placed six other Selby tracks in the show. Commercial demand has sought them out, validating their artistic direction, marketability, and a place in the emerging music scene. Selby's single, 'Claws', is cutting a niche in the mainstream with current rotation on UK's largest independent radio station, Manchester Radio. Selby's press has been stirred lately by a featured article on SacriliciousMarketing.com, which dubbed them '...the band to watch'.
