"...ahead of the power-pop-rocking pack... constantly surprises the listener..."

"Power pop the way it''s supposed to be... a cool delight."
- Santa Monica Mirror review (best of 2002)
L.A.''s Captain Genius gets its unique sound from a blend of melodic power-pop, old school rock and roll, and a hint of roots music. CG lives somewhere between Fountains of Wayne and Wilco, and around the corner from Matthew Sweet and Weezer.
Matthew Stephen Young, the band''s singer/guitarist offers clever, vulnerable and sincere lyrics to the band''s powerful sound. Bassist Kevin Danczak and drummer Chris K. provide a super-tight backbeat while keyboardist David Keeton adds lush organ and piano parts, as well as groovy space-synth sounds. CG''s dynamic debut cd gives the listener ten very catchy, rockin'' pop songs. Enjoy.
Currently, the band is recording a second cd, which is due out soon. Captain Genius is seeking new management and is booking shows through Summer 2005.
