Escaping Phoenix, a.k.a. EPHX, is not just a band, its an idea. An idea captured in the heart of every soul-searching, wide-eyed dreamer in the world. But the love of the members’ own home towns are deeply embeded in the lyrics and message of the music. We all must be proud of where we come from, but dare to venture forward into new unknows.
The members of EPHX are Adam Garcia (Lead Vocals), Aaron Garcia (Bass, Vocals), Charlie Carrillo (Lead Guitar), Jason Newcomer (Rhythm Guitar), and Vini Severino (Drums). All with an extensive backround in the indie pop-punk genre and teamed together for the sole purpose of performing ear-gasming songs for fans to charish all over the globe. They encourage fans to strongly stand their ground, dream big, pay attention to the passing sands of the hourglass, bravely walk the plank, and try to see another side of themselves. With two cross-country tours, countless full capacity local shows, a full length LP and a more recent EP, staggering merch sales, and a charisma that just can’t be matched, these boys are ready for the next step in becoming America’s next favorite band.

Fairy Bones: Imagine epic, dramatic alternative-pop songs sent out to the back rows of a stadium by a charismatic force of nature, who could more than hold her own against whatever Florence Welch could throw her way, sharing space on a stunning debut with songs that filter lofty art-rock sensibilities through the reckless abandon of punk. That was “Dramabot,” the debut album with which Fairy Bones confirmed their standing on the front ranks of the Phoenix music scene. Where most bands take years to find the right lineup and chemistry, Fairy Bones found it immediately when life long friends Chelsey Louise and Robert Ciuca joined forces with brothers Benjamin and Matthew Foos. As Louise recalls that fateful meeting, “It was like two halves coming together to form a whole, instead of four strangers trying to figure each other out.” A point that Fairy Bones considers essential to their success not just as a band, but as family as well. Though their sound has been characterized in every way from glam punks to arena rock, Fairy Bones has worked tirelessly from the beginning to craft a sound and style that was all their own. As Chelsey puts it, “It was important to us when we started to not discuss genre. Why waste your time trying to be something that already exists? It may be a harder path since there is no mold for you to fit into, but I think it’s a more rewarding path.” A decision that became the defining characteristic of their debut album “Dramabot.” Enter Bob Hoag (The Format, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, The Ataris), or as the band calls him, the fifth Fairy Bone. “My favorite thing about Fairy Bones,” Bob Hoag says, “is that as humans they’re the weirdest little family. They have an energy that I feel I have encountered in very few bands. And I feel that seeps into the music. It’s a really quirky and exciting record and most of that is just their personalities coming through.” Together with Bob Hoag, tucked away at the infamous Flying Blanket Studio, Fairy Bones managed to craft an album that surpassed all of their wildest expectations. You can catch Fairy Bones on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube then preview their new song “No One Can Suffer Like I Can” below!
