“We never planned on any of this,”
says front woman Emily about being in an up and coming band. But when a person is born for a purpose, whether you are looking for it or not, it finds you.
This is the case for new alternative rock band, Shine Bright Baby formed in late 2007. Hailing from the sleepy town of Orrville, Ohio, they have an impressive repertoire in a short time. Within the first three months of practicing together Emily Irene (lead vocals) and Nathan Fertig (guitar/vocals) crafted together a 6 song demo (Brace Yourself EP - Sold out). Later, they were joined by their friends Hudson Taylor (bass/vocals), Josh Fink (guitar/vocals) and Karl Wendel (drums) and did not wasted any time to make music that explodes onstage with their energy and passion.
Now, the curtain is rising and the stage is set for these five unlikely individuals to answer to their calling. “The Heart and Its Hope” EP (released May 2009) includes the energetic single “We Were Made To,” a song that Yes FM reviewers call “a fresh sound for this period of time.” Scoring a slot at the renowned Christian music festival Alive in June of 2009, has given the band the publicity needed to take them to the next level. Touring the tri-state region rigorously has built them dedicated fan base both online and on the road. They have worked tirelessly to music with inspiring melodies paired with unstoppable grooves for a truly infectious sound. In two years time they've gone from garage band to being dubbed “Ohio’s New Kids of Rock”. An engaging and unforgettable stage performance backs up the reputation that precedes them.
Shine Bright Baby is poised to take the world by storm. Though they are young (ages 16-21) these five friends’ experience, work ethic and professionalism far outweighs their peers. After working with producer Jake Rye, Shine Bright Baby came forth with the much anticipated single “This Picture” released April 2010. With sales and industry attention rising, it will not be long until the depth and range of their talents are unveiled for eager ears worldwide.
What other people say about SHINE BRIGHT BABY:
“I really do see a ton of potential…and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Shine Bright Baby”
Jared, House of Heroes (Gotee Records)
“We discovered Shine Bright Baby at another venue in our area, and we were instantly drawn to them. They have such an energetic sound, great stage presence, and great talent. Shine Bright has become a crowd favorite and one of our "standard bands" at Wired!”
Scott, owner of “Wired” (regular venue in Mansfield, OH)
“I get sent demo CDs every day working on Music Row in Nashville, and like you, I end up tossing the CD into a growing pile of poorly-produced, lazily performed, and generically uneventful music; e.g. trash can. When I first met the young members of Shine Bright Baby, I smiled to myself and said, “now that’s what ‘IT’ is supposed to be.” These kids are a fresh group of incredibly talented, influential, and ridiculously cool musicians who can influence the direction of their own generation’s pop-culture; a sound investment for any serious music distributor.”
