Los Angeles and London: combined the two music Meccaâs have been responsible for half the greatest songs of the last four decades. So itâs only fitting that when you merge the two into one musical metropolis you get I-94, three English ex-pats and a L.A. musician, who take songwriting to new levels. The quartet is back on the scene with a new record, BITS AND PARTS, which is packed tight with songs that would sound great coming out of your car speakers, computer, iPod, or wherever, right next to U2, Snow Patrol, Lifehouse, Coldplay and Switchfoot.
i-94âs previous albums, âDonât Get Nervousâ and "CONTROL" had 2 top 5 hits on Yahooâs Launch Cast Radio in 2005 and early 2006-7 on the Adult Alternative station with âGo Back In Timeâ and âNot Aloneâ (reached 3) and their single "Somewhere Else" from their CONTROL album recieved a great responce from internet radio. Above artists such as Rob Thomas, Maroon 5, Coldplay, Collective Soul, Nickelback, Three Doors Down, Fall Out boy and lifehouse. i-94 followed âDonât Get Nervousâ with an acoustic cd, âAcoustic Sessionsâ released in summer 2006, also available on Cdbaby.com and iTunes. They followed that with a third album "CONTROL". The single "Somewhere else" from that album was in the top ten songs of the international song writing competition, above hundreds of thousands of song entries. It was also nominated for this years LA music awards,"best group with vocal".
Hollywood has taken notice. The foursomeâs songwriting has caught the attention of many Music Supervisors. Among the movies and TV series that have featured the songs of i-94 are, âMen In Tressâ (ABC), MTVâs âLaguna Beachâ, âThe Hillsâ, âRoad Rulesâ and âRoad Rules Challengeâ (the band is now featured on MTV.com), A & Eâs âRoller Girlsâ, National Lampoonâs âHalf Bakedâ, ABCâs âCutting Edge 2â, TLCâs âLA Riding Clubâ, Showtimeâs âReversal Of Fortuneâ, âSmallville,â âSix Feet Under,â âWithout A Traceâ,â âCrossing Jordan,â Major movies and Lifetime TV movies.
While the band is thankful to have the support of Hollywood and to see their music on the big and little screen so much, they also love to see fans discover i-94 in their natural habitat: on stage.
On their new record, "Bits and Parts", i-94 reveals the full range of their musical dynamic from the fragile, intimate songs, âHold Me Nowâ and "Mindless song" to the catchy sass of âThese Daysâ and crunching, energetic rockers like "When she comes round",âDont Fade Me Outâ and âKnow My Nameâ. With tracks such as âThe Sun Will Rise Againâ, "Too low" and âAlone Againâ the band serve up powerful anthems with epic style. Yet, they also show a more mellow side to their music as displayed in the songs "Losing Youâ and the hooky arpeggio piano of âBits and Partsâ. These songs have an addictive quality that is further amplified by well annunciated lyrics delivered by Arnell. His velvety, smooth voice sooths the ear, while he adjusts his it slightly to add a bit of grit and kicks it up for higher register crooning.
From being multi instrumentalists with Danny, Matt and Angelo creating and playing string and keyboard parts, to the engineering, production and mixing skills of Arnell to creating the artwork it was completely self contained. They recorded an finished this record for absolutely no money, using no studio outboard gear,(well. just a Focusrite mic pre) and plug ins on Pro Tools MAC OS 9 and 10. âThis album shows that all you need is a vision and pair of earsâ, laughs Arnell.
i-94 formed in 2002 when band mates Mark and Danny (formally of Bottlefly and signed to Universal)
brought in bassist Angelo, and once they hooked up with guitarist Matt, who was a friend from the U.K., the current line-up of I-94 was born. Despite the fact the band are modern road warriors, having played around the world, the name i-94 doesnât have a thing to do with the interstate highway. âItâs the immigration/visa waiver form you have to fill out to get into the U.S. as a non-resident. Itâs called an I-94.â Check out their other albums: "Dont Get Nervous", "Acoustic Sessions" and "Control", all available from cdbaby and Itunes.
