StraddleDaddy, the Middletown, CT-based funk rock band, is quickly gaining a name for itself with a unique and energized sound and stage show. The bands six members, coming from a diverse set of musical influences, each bring a different and varied voice to the table, evident in the bands self-produced debut album Surveys from a Fishbowl. The long awaited and highly anticipated release of Surveys was met by wide praise from both those who attend each and every show, and from those who simply picked up on the bands buzz since Straddle hit the scene more than three years ago. Surveys illustrates the early evolution of the band, which began performing in Hartford, CT as a four-piece acoustic group. The loss of a founding member to holy matrimony only slowed the band briefly, and StraddleDaddy returned as an electrified six-piece rock and roll outfit. Throughout the recording of Surveys, band members also said goodbye to their keyboardist, and later the drummer. Surveys is proof still of the bands resilience and of its talent. The sprawling debut takes listeners through the bands diverse repertoire of rock, funk, hip-hop and even at times what some may call country. Dont tell the band that, however, its all moxie-rock to them. With enough original music to plug up an IPod, and even more churning out with each rehearsal, Straddles road show continues to evolve and highlight the outfits prolific productivity. Boasting a unique lineup with every performance, the band weaves specific cover selections into each set list. Through touring during the mixing stage of Surveys, the band earned popularity and die hard fans across the East Coast. The Straddle sound, comprised of two ripping guitars, driving drum beats and bass, and the vocal color of two co-mcs, warmed freezing fans in Burlington, VT and cooked competition in band battles throughout their home state of Connecticut. As Straddles circle of fans grows with each performance, the bands ability to dial in to those fans only becomes more precise. Audiences around the country will soon see StraddleDaddy as the representation of where musics edge is cutting. Since the recording of Surveys, the band has evolved even further, and it shows in Straddles second album, Moxie on Fire.
