SIX VOLT is a band from the Jersey Shore (no not “that” Jersey shore seen on TV) and was formed in the winter of 2009 by Granger Whitelaw, Jr and Joe Cilento. The band now includes members Granger Whitelaw, Jr. (Guitar/Vocals), Joe Cilento (Guitar), Jake Wood (Bass), and Robby Webb (Drums). In the summer of 2009, the band was “discovered” by Andy Karp, the legendary head of A & R at Atlantic Records for 19 years, now working independently. In addition, Bob Chiappardi of Concrete planet, a 25-year veteran of the business, Peter Zizzo, Eric Sherman of 10th Street Entertainment and a number of others have joined the “band wagon” (no pun intended) in support of this new group. The “band wagon” have and/or currently work with artists including Kid Rock, Matchbox 20, Linkin Park, Aerosmith, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, The Fray & Jason Mraz to name a few. The band’s fresh sound and talent has earned them high esteem in the Tri-State area and their audience is quickly expanding. In addition, they give 5% of their profits to after-school-all-stars to help build music programs across the USA!
SIX VOLT is proud to announce the dates of their Summer 2010 tour. The band plays and records all of their music and will be taking the stage to perform LIVE in 43 cities beginning on May 23, 2010. They are currently in their Red Bank, NJ studio finalizing their self-titled album, due to release September 14th and the celebrated first single, “MIND ON ME,” is available digitally on June 1st. along with their debut EP.
