The best kept secret in music


"E-Mail Response - Post 8/21/06 Show"

"Hey guys, it’s Randy from AWS. I thought you guys put on one of the best local shows I’ve seen in a good while, and even though you didn’t have a ton of fans right up in front of the stage, you still played like it was a full arena. It’s hard to find bands that are willing to do that.

I listened to your CD the other day, and when I listen to any local band the first thing I do is turn my system down so I don’t have to hear the poor recording quality, because the band either couldn’t afford to make a good recording or didn’t know how. You were the first band that I could push the system to 11! And it’s not just because the recording quality was good, but because I really did enjoy your music.

We’re starting up a booking company, and it should be up to full speed sometime around January or February. I’ve put you on our top bands to watch for and contact for upcoming shows, so you should be hearing more about that sometime over the next few months.

Keep in touch, and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Living in a city surrounded by music, and musicians, each with their own voice, screaming to be heard, makes it difficult on any one group to be noticed. Stellar Rock, however, is a band with the initiative, independence, and the drive to get their voice heard, and to get their message to as many people as possible. A suburb of Cleveland, Ohio is the birthplace of Stellar Rock, formed by veteran members Ricky J. Reece (lead vocalist / guitarist) and Rob Reece (lead guitarist). They have since grown the reputation as being “one of the hardest working Christian bands in the Cleveland area” (Bruce Brenneman, Promoter – PROJECT 18).

When asked to describe their sound, Stellar Rock always replies the same way…“Rock”. Their influences vary, from Pillar, Kutlass, and Incubus, to Kirk Franklin, Finch, and Underoath. …and that’s just barely scratching the surface. But at the end of the day, Stellar Rock is just that. Rock. Maybe the specific style will change from song to song, but that’s the enchantment of the band. Pop-Rock, 80’s Rock, Alt. Rock, and Melodic Rock are all very much noticeable with Stellar Rock. The band fuses screaming guitars, with powerful solos, catchy bass hooks, and hip-hop influenced drum beats that you can’t help but groove to, with catchy lyrical hooks that will stay in your head for days to come.

Internal dilemmas and line-up changes occur in any band, and Stellar Rock was no exception. However, in the midst of going through drummer after drummer, and bassist after bassist, the band managed to release two full-length albums and a few unreleased demos.

Grayson Latimore Jr. joined the band in 2005 as Stellar Rock’s newest and final drummer and the group immediately hit the studio to record their latest album, “Welcome to the S-Rock Show”. Produced by Jason Lustig (METROSYNC STUDIOS – Story of the Year, blink-182, Sugarcult), Stellar Rock felt that this album needed to be a turning point for them, and viewed its release as a reintroduction to the “new” Stellar Rock. As production of the album came to an end in the summer of 2006, Grayson called on his old high school friend, JD Smith, to fill in their still-vacant slot as the permanent bassist.

On stage, Stellar Rock puts on an intense and extremely entertaining live show, which has been sought after all over the state of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Walking the line of rocking out hard, while still managing to have a good time and interact with the audience, can often prove tricky for most bands, but not Stellar Rock. They do it flawlessly, and make it appear effortless. Charisma and charm, both on and off stage, is a definitive quality of each S-Rock member, and audience members who come in not knowing the name of the band, will leave the show as true Stellar Rock fans.
