The Damnwells

Brooklyn quartet The Damnwells don't play it safe. Describing their music as "rock with problems", front man Alex Dezen's dreamy, languorous phrasing and majestic melodies drive the band. With Dezen on vocals and guitar, drummer Steven Terry, bassist Ted Hudson, and guitarist Dave Chernis round out the line-up.

Sleepsinging, taken from The Damnwells debut PMR + 1 (Poor Man's Record plus one bonus song), finds the band at their finest, crafting beautiful pop songs propelled by The Damnwells love for a great rock song. The songs get stuck in your head, while you tap your feet to the infectious rhythms. You keep hearing the songs even after they're done, singing them in the shower, while you walk down the street, and in your car.

Harnessing the power of their live shows, The Damnwells make sure that you remember not only their name, but their sound, each song possessing its own distinct melody, all the while sounding undeniably like The Damnwells.

Constant touring and recording has kept the band busy. Tours with Rhett Miller (of Old 97's), Josh Rouse, Mason Jennings, Cheap Trick and Slobberbone have helped the band find an ever-growing audience in each market they hit.

Look for the band on the road constantly, as they tour the East Coast, Midwest, and, recently, the West Coast, helping to spread the word of The Damnwells one fan at a time.
