Convey / Noize Tank / The Bloodline
Whether the inspiration comes from light and color, from social concerns, from cathartic moments, or simply from any one of the bands' diverse musical influences, Convey uses music to reach its audience at a level both personal and deep. Convey's music is a dynamic, jarring, chaotic, controlled, melodic, and meaningful glimpse into the band's personal and collaborative sensitivities.
Formed in the spring of 2010 from students at Berklee College of Music, each member of Noize Tank has a unique background and influence, drawing all the way from Art Blakey to Muse. Since then, they've worked to develop an inspiring sound: not so much defined by its bright grooves, lush harmonies, or blaring intensity, but by the way it makes gets a person moving and to tell their friends about it.
Consisting of Elliott Klein (guitar/voice), Mike Ball (bass) and Shawn Crowder (drums), the Bloodline provides a fresh new face to Rock delivering powerful riffs and solos combined with a soulful voice. The band just released its debut album, with simple lyrics that cut deep set to a infectious groove. Over the past year, they've played such showcases as the Levi/Fader Fort at SXSW and NYRP's NYC Grows Festival. Make sure to stay tuned for shows coming this fall.
