FEATURED THIS WEEK
News from ART DECADE – The making of the ‘Western Sunrise’ video.
Ben Talmi of Art Decade formed his first band in 2003 while in 8th grade, with Ben on guitar and vocals, Channel released its first EP “Perpetual Motion” in 2003. The band’s second release, “Inch Deep Oceans”. Three songs from that album, the title song “Inch Deep Oceans”, “Havoc”, and “The March” were submitted for the 49th Grammy Awards in 2006. Channel toured Canada and the East coast to promote “Inch Deep Oceans” and were featured live on air and received airplay on college radio stations including Carnegie Mellon, Case-Western, Brock University, and on Yellowbeat Radio in Japan.
Channel’s next release “Androgyny Is In” was recorded at Looking Glass Studios with producer Mario McNulty (Bowie, Morrissey, Iggy Pop.) In 2008, “Androgyny Is In” was again submitted for the 2008 Grammy Awards. “Androgyny Is In” garnered the attention of the late LeRoi Moore of the Dave Matthews Band which led to the newly named Art Decade recording “Innocence/Experience” at Dave Matthew’s own Haunted Hollow Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Innocence/Experience” was released in June 2008.
In 2008, Binod Singh Jr of Toronto, ON joined Art Decade on bass and vocals, and Chad Montermini of Olympia, WA on drums and vocals. Art Decade then recorded and released their latest EP, “Royalty” on September 9th, 2009. Since “Royalty,” Art Decade has been playing several shows in Boston and gaining fanbases heavily in New England as well as other areas of the USA. The band is currently working with a full string quartet to help improve the bands live sound.
