The idea of Pomeroy started in the summer of 1997. Two college friends, Matt Marron and David Fairbanks, wanted to create a band that crossed the best parts of underground hip-hop with the best parts of old school funk. "We were thinking the verses would have "A Tribe Called Quest" kind of feel and the chorus's would be like an "Earth Wind and Fire" type of thing, big, poppy, and harmonius." The two recorded a rough demo in Los Angeles a few months later to hear what this vision would sound like on tape. It didn't take long to realize they had something special. It also didn't take long to realize that hard rock, Marron's main influence since childhood, was creeping it's way into the writing. After months of passing around the demo, a chance meeting brought in Dean Hopkins and Chris Davis to complete the rhythm section. They had their first practice in April 98 and their first show two weeks later.
After 8 years of constant touring and after releasing 2 LP's, 2 EP's, and a DVD, Pomeroy took it's first break to write what would become the band's greatest work of music yet. "A New Reflection" was released in Oct. 2007 and is Pomeroy's perfect blend of rock, pop, and hip-hop. The first single released, "The Beat Goes On", reached 400 spins/week on Hot AC Top 40 radio across the country. Pomeroy is currently touring in support of the new album and their mission is to get "A New Reflection" into the hands of every music lover in the country.
