"The Fez too Release"

In a world all there own "The Fez" are breaking new ground on the Chicago music scene with some of Chicago's most respected musicians. The Fez was formed by Lead Singer/Songwriter Tony Di Giulio (You will soon know him as "SCARTONI") as he decided to leave his former band "7th Heaven." After playing over 145 shows a year with that line up and not elevating to the level that he felt artist should,"He describes the band as Selling out" "I felt restricted playing half originals and half cover songs. Not bieng able to create a vibe originally or get into character for the gigs. I would not get high off the music anymore or even be able to sleep at night knowing we would be up on stage playing our original material one moment and then busting into a cover tune the next. With all do respect to former members he felt out of Character on stage less satisfied with bieng labled "The local rock star". The falling out between Tony and Lead guitar player "Dickie Hofherr" got ugly when the two could not agree on what direction was best for the band. Self motivated, in 2002 for obvious reasons Tony decided to call it quits! The songwriting talents were far too great to be held down and controled by such a one sided view of the music business. Described by friends and musicians alike as "An amazing artist" Tony has now formed a power house line up of childhood friends and former bandmates to form a killer band called "The Fez." The new CD titled "LEMON" Is rather refreshing & The EP is earning much respect from producers, Indi labels and fans both locally and most recently nationally. The new 10 song Cd was recorded @ Gravity Studio's in Chicago's own trendy Wicker Park area (Doug McBride's Domain) and mixed by Jeff Lane @ CRC (Sleepy Head Productions). Jeff and Tony were childhood friends, and a master plan to make the new CD was originated when the two met up again for breakfast 12 years later. Five minutes into Tony and Jeff's conversation They both knew It was truly a magical moment to be able to work so close together and have the exact same vision for the sound & style that is now "The Fez." Jeff lane has worked with artist such as Pearl Jam,Brittany Spears,Michael Jackson,Garbage,Twista,Billy Corgan.Smashing Pumkins,Cheap Trick, even Ozzy, and many others. So "The decision to work together was a NO brainer" says Tony. " I am happier than ever and truly feel blessed to be able to create as an artist again, It's almost as if it's a Re-Birth." (LOL) I truly believe in this project and for what it's worth, I will fight tooth and nail to make this band what it should be....A success." With that bieng said The Fez can be learned about by going to www.thefezmusic.com, There are free downloads and info about the band.
In closing I will leave you with this quote from Tony Di Giulio.
"WE' ROCK......YOU ROLL."

Bio

Take the grandiose song writing ability of Elvis Costello, the melodic influence of the Beatles, and the modern hard rock sensibility of The Foo Fighters, poor them all in a blender, blend at high speed,and you have a tasty pop/rock/punk concoction called "The Fez."
