Bio

ts only once in a while, out of the sea of rock bands that one pops to the surface with something to offer unique, fresh, and exciting to the music landscape and a band called The Status living just north of Atlanta is one such musical anomaly.
The Status started in 2003, comprised of 5 members, 2 brothers Ben Grant, lead singer/guitarist, Danny Grant on bass, and best friends Andy Thompson lead guitar/vocals, Mike Felker on drums, & Jesse Battaglia on keys, The Status isnt aspiring to be another cookie-cutter band, as they truly love playing music and reaching those who have become fans and anyone who has heard their melodic sound and thoughtful lyrics.
Once you meet them, you start getting the suspicion that this could be the next big thing that has been incubating and ready to break. These guys have real songsyou know the kind that stick with you with staying power like their influences which include Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, Oasis, Jimmy Eat World, Good Charlotte among others.
In the new era of manufactured pop idols like instant mashed potatoes, and criticism of music industrys gigantic cesspool of really bad bands, its refreshing to see a true rising talent whos driven with relentless vigor and a persistent focus on their craft.
