MP3 ForceField On - llipspill
Imagine popping in the disc. You hear some pretty nice melody and guitars and the occasional piano. Pretty good indie rock band you think. Then out of nowhere, but so suiting, a three piece horn section fills the void.

Off the beaten path of passed projects and musical relationships, ForceField ON only has one objective; to accomplish the task of writing completely from the heart. If you think it sounds like something else, that could be accurate, music has grown immensely, and is always going to be somewhat duplicated. If you feel that is sounds like nothing you''ve ever heard before, that would also be correct. All I can promise you is this; everything created by this band is orchestrated from the inside to the outside. Call it Folky, call it Singer/Songwriter, call it Indie Rock with Horns, but I think in the long run you will call it enchanting. The group''s name comes more from a secluded feeling than an outer space adventure. Turning your force field on at the end of the day and concentrating on yourself. Weary of incorporating the new standards of Indie Rock with trends such as "The New Disco Beat" or "The Monotone Vocal", ForceField ON brings you the life of soft horns to an already pleasantly moody atmosphere of song, sometimes reminiscent of Elvis Costello or even The Flaming Lips. Straying away from too much distorted guitar, they bring you an orchestration of instruments equally being heard and not fighting for attention. With sliding guitar, horn pads, and ambient background knick-knacks, this is equivalent perhaps to a teeny tiny orchestra, without disregarding any meaningful rawness to the sound. The background on this band is almost like a maze. Singer/Guitarist JESSE WILDER, Lead Guitarist JOHN SISK, and Bassist JAKE BERREY have been musically joined for over 14 years in a series of different projects. Whereas Wilder and Drummer BRANDON LAWS have a different history of touring Europe with the likes of CHRIS CACAVAS (Green On Red), STEVE WYNN, CALEXICO, LAMBCHOP, BARBARA MANNING, and THE WILLARD GRANT EXPERIENCE. Trombonist MATT GUY was snagged up by Sisk at a local Long Beach club called The Prospector where he was performing with his band MARITIME ACADEMY. Trombonist COREY RUDOLPH was found over the Internet, during a search of local horn players, and turned out to be an amazing fit for the band. If you look into some of the members’ past credits, you may find bands such as THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS, TEEN HEROES, NEVILLE STAPLE (of The Specials), and even a gold record for co-writing with REEL BIG FISH. But don’t be fooled, ForceField ON is a vast departure from any of this. With their fan base rapidly growing as well as their progression in music this group is on the move in a lot of directions, including their full length release due out Spring of 2007.
