Joe and Jon have been playing music together since a 5th grade talent show. Jon, Joe and John have been performing together locally for 3 years. B.E.N. joined the group and they became “The Wall Clocks”.

Jon, who writes most of the songs sums it up this way: "A coming together of various parts, be they dials, hands, quartz movements, or pendulums, the ticking has begun at last. "Who" is what doesn't matter. All that matters is that four individuals have decided to add their element to the musical landscape of this hardly round world. Each bringing his spirit and own hue to the color of the light, they have created something blinding. You will hear an array of riffs, licks and bits emitted from a speaker that produces the sounds- channeled from the brain, to the arm, to the fingers, to the fretboard, to the pickups, through the cord, to a speaker and into your ear- the incredible generation of simple harmonic motion.
Joe is in his own world creating a never-ending whirlwind of sounds. The bluesman parodied? No, this is the real thing. Jonathan is in a corner somewhere, hunched over a legal pad with an acoustic guitar and an inspirational buzz in his head. That's all he needs. To interrupt him would be a mistake. He scribbles down words, knowing that’s how he will express those emotions. He looks forward to it every single time. Don't you? John, a rock, blows holes in the north wall, providing a base of bass to the mixture. Fear of emptiness is eliminated. Experience does not overshadow creativity it seems, but strengthens passion. B.E.N. sits on his throne, beating at the skins and holding everything together. Suddenly, the four walls become connected. Every crash means something. Is that a jazz-rock beat on an acoustic ballad? You bet it is. That's the beauty of experimentation rather than overproduction. When did music stop becoming art? Maybe when the music took a backseat to the band itself... well not anymore. Why not create? Why not expand? Just look to The Wall Clocks, and you'll see the time is right."
