*****************************************

A singer, songwriter and musician. These three things that now describe lead vocalist and guitarist of new york pop rock band “the August story” was simply a pipe dream till a successful gig in Las Vegas in 2003 changed everything for the soon to be aspiring musician.

Singer songwriter Feroze ( known as Fze to his friends ) is not a new comer to the new york music scene although he has only been playing some guitar and drums since high school.

“ School was fun. We covered bands like the Beatles, Eagles and even Scorpions…I played drums in one band and sang in the other and played rhythm guitar in yet another one “ .

With such earlier performances in front of hundred strong crowds only allowed him to overcome stage fear and nervousness leaving room to concentrate on performance.

Fze records and performs under the band name “ the August story “ ever since he began playing guitar in the new york area portraying a band rather than a solo artist just like one of his favorite musician Trent Rezner of Nine Inch Nails.

“it’s a great setup cause I get to play with some of the finest musicians around ….”

Citing some bands that influence him are Filter, Coldplay, U2, Keane, GreenDay, Oasis and Radiohead just to name a few.

Presently working on an EP after the internet release of the single “ Stealing you “ in late 2004, a follow up to the CD single released earlier, the musician is planning to head back to the studio to record new tunes and hone his skills on guitar and songwriting.

Much of this summer is planned to be spent in studio, rehearsal spaces and a few open mike gigs now and then to keep the live energy flowing following up with some major shows in the Fall in support of the EP.

The self titled EP is due out in Fall and will be available at www.cdbaby.com plus at the shows and several selected retail outlets.
