"Every once in a while, a band that is totally different than my stream of consciousness will make its way onto my radar. Finespun is one of these bands."

The problem with the music industry is that there are not enough bands like Finespun. They are persistent, hardworking and aggressive. These gentlemen exploit every possible opportunity that comes their way. When there isn’t a visible opportunity they have a knack of creating their own. On the bands new CD, entitled “Fracture”, Finespun welcomed producers A.J. Resta and Karyadi Sutdjeta who were interested enough in the group to lend their professional skills to the product.
They're regulars at clubs in the northeast and open for the likes of Gilby Clarke (formerly of Guns 'N Roses), Wheatus, The London Quireboys, Hookah Brown (Black Crowe's) and Kings X. They tour the US from New York to Austin and everywhere in between. In addition they have received invitations to both SXSW and 2NMC. As a result of this exposure and their continued popularity, they have been chosen as one of the top fifty bands in the country by Coca-Cola's New Music Awards. Finespun was also involved in the Emergenza and Bodog competitions.
The New York based band is Oren Barak (vocals, guitars), Patrick Brennan (guitars), Doug Tammany (bass), and Ed Grazi (drums) and is without a doubt a band to watch not only on the New York City circuit but also throughout the nation. Finespun generates much of its stage presence and studio creativity through a sense of respect for musical inspiration.
The long-term goal for Finespun is to gain more fans and further extend the reach of their music. Offering tracks like “Hourglass”, one of the heavy hitters off their new release entitled “Fracture”, “Against The Fallout”, a ballad that speaks from the heart and “4 Walls, 1 Window” which takes a introsepective look at ones frustration, success is simply eminent. They also maintain a very active website, www.finespunmusic.com
, where you are always able to find new audio and video fresh from the studio. Finespun is a band that should be recognized as a band for the people with an ultimate goal of touching you with their music.
Finespun’s creativity has always been fused from each member. There is no turning back for Finespun. This bands mission is to play their music for a living. Oren Barak (vocals and guitar) sums it up, “we’ve all dumped our life’s blood into this band. This is all we want and there is no alternative.” When asked about the opportunities that are present for musicians Ed Grazi (drums) mentions, “independent artists get so much more assistance these days because of online services. There are so many more resources to embrace and exploit. You just have to get out there and do it.”
