Formed in 2006 by Johnny and Tyler, they have been writing and recording their own music and playing shows around New England. After playing as a two and the occasional three piece, they added a bass player, Jamie, who had played with john in the past, and another guitar player, Tim, a friend from high school, completing the quartet as full time members. The group is currently working on a full length album which they expect to release in the next few months followed by a tour that could take them across the US and across the Pond.

Melt

Band Members: Lindsey Kyte - Vocals
Paul Pipitone - Bass, Vocals
Dan Inzana - Guitar, Vocals
Ben Thompson/Dave Lowe/Bryan Yebba - Drums

Click here to listen to "Draggin' Me Down"
 





Bio: 
Bassist Paul Pipitone had been on the local circuit for several years and was looking to do something new that combined elements that were dynamic and jarring yet still accessible and melodic. Initially, he wanted to combine punk, art rock, goth and funk and was hoping to find people not afraid to branch out from static one-dimensional rock sounds.

A kindred spirit was found in Dan Inzana who took on lead guitar duties in the fall of 2008. Dan is also a veteran of the local Boston rock scene. The two instantly connected and the playing/writing styles and personalities complimented immediately. Dan’s style is a combination of alternative and atmospheric, while still maintaining a soaring driving feel that changes on a dime.

Enter Lindsey Kyte, classically trained soprano extraordinaire. From the second she belted out her first note, it was clear she was the voice and front person we had been looking for. Lindsey resides in Lowell, MA where she has performed in two of local choir groups. Lindsey cites her inspirations as the power of Simone Simons from Epica, the range and control of Sarah Brightman with the haunting style of Amy Lee of Evanesence. Using these styles and mixing them with her unique and sometimes quirky personality - Lindsey brings a new sound that compliments the band in new and exciting ways!

Arms and Ears is the head of a longterm artistic and musical collaboration between singer/songwriter, Rocco D'Angelo and drummer, Alex Martin. Drawing influences from different genres of music, from indie rock to pop electronica, Arms and Ears sculpts a sound that is distinctly their own, yet it somehow satisfyingly familiar. In their debut EP "Call a Search" they showcase their skills in simple yet affective songwriting, catchy vocal melody, and dynamics. They also put on an extremely energetic live show filling to the brim with raw emotion and catharsis. Be sure to catch this band at one of their very frequent shows in Boston!
