#MusicMonday January 13th
Written by Total Meyhem on 13th January 2020
This week’s #MusicMonday choice comes from #FirstPlays and The Active Rock Chart host JayRock.
JayRock’s choice is from 14 North, an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, FL.
The track first appeared on the January 4th edition of #FirstPlays, and was also picked as Ondy’s Track of the Week.
The project started in 2016 as a musical collaboration among four friends in a garage on 14th Ave N in Jacksonville beach originally known as “FlowState”.
In 2017 the band began their journey in the studio of Damien Starkey (Puddle of Mudd, Burn Season, Society Red) who helped craft the bands hard-rock, post-grunge sound. After going through some growing pains as a new band, they finally decided on the current name before finishing up their debut album “What is the Feeling”.
The band consists of founding member Zach Arcuri on lead guitar, lead vocalist Brandon Williams, Josh Brown on drums, and bassist Alden Kacer.
14 North quickly made a name for themselves in the local scene, and in the music industry itself. They were offered and inked a deal with Pavement Entertainment in August of 2019, almost immediately after finishing up in the studio. Since then they have shared the stage with some amazing local and national acts such as Tantric, Eve to Adam, Danny Warsnop of Asking Alexandria, Janet Gardner, Bottleneck, and Brett Myers. The band is currently getting ready for their album release on February 21st, 2020 then hitting the road with Flaw on their first American tour. 14 North is a band of four friends with a strong message on a mission to bring the underdog spirit of grunge back to the people.
JayRock’s choice is “Out of Control” and as our Track Of The Week, we will play this every day at 6am, Midday, 6pm and Midnight.
