Green Vinyl Dream has been a band on the verge for the last several years, and now their first nationally released full-length album, GREEN VINYL DREAM (from DCC Compact Classics), has them poised for the breakthrough theyve been building toward.
The band takes seemingly innate songwriting and performance instincts and combines them with a breadth of inspirations from alt rock to classic rock to art rock, Pearl Jam and Creed to Rush and U2 to create a unique sonic punch and relentlessly memorable hooks.
The bandvocalist and guitarist Hajewski, guitarist Rick Holton, bassist Rick Zaccaro and drummer Jeff Heintzformed in the San Fernando Valley in the mid-Ô90s right after the Northridge earthquake (It was a moving experience, jokes Hajewski). Their first indie single, Cant Stop Now, garnered significant radio airplay on select stations around the country. They followed that success by recording the original soundtrack to the film The Pistol, based on the life of the late basketball star Pistol Pete Maravich.
Ultimately, the band was named one of the Top Ten unsigned acts of the year by Music Connection Magazine, and their debut indie CD earned the Most Outstanding Indie Album award at the L.A. Music Awards. The band also won an award for one of their songs from the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest. That song, Everybodys Here, appears on the new album.
GVD is a true collective, four like-minded, talented musicianssincere and serious about what they do. The band is currently supporting the album opening for bands such as Aerosmith, Fuel, Linkin Park and UPO.
