"The Current - 8.23.07"

"I really dug the "sound" these guys have. It's a powerful electric emission that does not blow you to the back of the room. Levels were very good and the set list was well prepared. A broken leg of one member inhibited them from playing several months ago, but they were here with friends and family tonight. They have a radio friendly appeal that could easily be incorporated on any major affiliate's set list." - Chris from Live @ The Nail Radio Show


We recently released a 9 track self-titled CD that we recorded in our "home studio." We will be selling them at shows and online through myspace.



The Current recently emerged from the Philadelphia area in the summer of 2006. Although only recently stepping onto the local scene, their musical style and ideas have existed for quite a few years between the close friendship of both lead guitarists, Phil Daniels and Joey Noce, as well as drummer Josh Dunlap. These three friends had collaborated musically since early in their high school experiences and eventually formed the foundation for the full quintet we know today as The Current.
After years of frustration while searching for a bassist and vocalist to complete the group and stints with many other local artists, Phil Daniels realized that the talent they were looking for was right under his nose. It was actually living right across the street, in the form of his best friend John McDevitt, who was the perfect fit for the bands vacant bassist position. Although John had never previously played bass, Phil believed that John was probably the most accomplished musician of all the band members. John’s natural talent for jazz on the trumpet, along with his similar musical influences, convinced the group as a whole that he would grow as a bassist and fit snuggly with the groups’ style.

The band was officially completed in the summer of 2006 when another close friend, Jeff Spengler, was added to fill the vocalist position. Jeff’s arrival allowed years of futile tinkering, in each of the previous members basements, to move out to the local stages. Newly equipped with a full set of members and having finally found a vocalist, the band set forth to supplement previous musical ideas with fresh vocal melodies.

In the near future the band plans to complete a full length LP comprised of instrumental ideas that have remained dormant due to the lack of a lead singer. The curiosity that draws local interest to this band is the potential that they show to make original and stylish songs once they are finally able to go into the studio and collaborate as one whole cohesive unit.

As these young artists gain experience their potential increases as rapidly as their growth on each of their respective instruments. Today the band hopes to be able to juggle several different college and career responsibilities while creating and promoting a brand of music that is as unique as each of its members.
