Feeling a bit camera shy


The Finalist recorded their debut release in Vancouver, Canada with acclaimed rock producer, GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine). The sound that was captured reflects the high energy and passionate delivery of this young but extremely talented band.

The Finalist are currently touring, building their community of friends and fans while promoting their Maverick Records full-length record debut. The heavily guitar driven record, full of pop-hook melodies, is set for a Spring 2007 release. Hailing from Houston, Texas, the four-members are 18, 19, 21 and 21 years old. They met through their mutual love for rock music, and from continuously running into each other at various rock venues throughout Houston. They formed after lead vocalist, Dylan Brady, and lead guitarist, Jerry Nettles, decided to leave their old band and create a sound that would offer heartfelt melodies and straight-up rock guitars. Dylan and Jerry already had other members in mind. Jerry had known drummer Doug Adams for a few years, and knew he shared the same musical vision. The final member, Brent Nettles, was selected because of his musical talent and passion, and the organic sound of the band is enhanced because he and his brother, Jerry have toiled together for years.

It has been a fast-paced two years since The Finalist formed. They began recording songs as soon as they wrote them. And by the time they had completed a six-song demo, they were already hearing from interested record labels. Signing to Maverick Records almost exactly one year after their first practice, The Finalist spent every day for the next six months writing the record they would later record in Summer 2005. That recording, overseen by legendary rock producer GGGarth Richardson in Vancouver, Canada will be released in Spring 2007. For now, the band continues to tour, rehearse, write, and build their audience. You can hear them live, or as the featured artist on the complilation soundtrack for "The Hills Have Eyes," produced by Wes Craven, which came out March 21, 2006.
