ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY:
Alive with harmonious melodies and powerful orchestration, GEE DAVEY is fast becoming a force to reckon with... or at least, one to listen to.
Formed from the remnants of local favorites like SUFFER FOOL, WITHOUT WARNING, NARCOTIC GYPSY and WORLD STRANGER , GEE DAVEY is comprised of Jack Bielata (Vocals), Michael Bontempi (Drums), Wayne Macgregor (Bass) and DJ Pearlman (Guitars).
Their sound is the result of their collective years of experience with both recording and producing kick-ass music. Their influences range from Foo Fighters to Train and Stone Temple Pilots to Fuel, but their sound is definitely all their own. It is a mix of hard rock and alternative stylings, blended with poignant lyrics and catchy riffs.
GEE DAVEY is a powerhouse of potent new music whose songs will make you want to sing along.

THE MAKING OF SPARTICLE:
The first full-length album from the band, SPARTICLE offers a truly telling look into the sounds of GEE DAVEY. Written and recorded throughout 2005 and early 2006, the band built this album from the ground up, from writing and recording, to mixing and producing.
We ran into many problems trying to get this project done. From scheduling conflicts and other personal obligations, it wasn’t even certain that we would ever finish it, so in September we took the three songs that we had been able to complete, and put them out on the Sparticle EP. After that, we just decided to get it “done” and pushed hard through the end of 2005 until all the tracks were down. in early 2006 we remixed the original three songs from the EP, and added in the remaining seven songs that would eventually become SPARTICLE.
We worked hard on this, we hope you enjoy it.

Sparticle Article
Picture yourself standing alone in a great wide open. You sense something distant approaching, so you spin around searching. You don’t yet see the album-opening guitar riff creeping in Behind You. Lyrics start up and you spin faster, but the music is still too far off to make out. Before you know what’s happening, drums and bass swell, the guitar and vocals crank, and BAM! There it is, Sparticle, the latest album from Gee Davy.

This album creates something new from an eclectic adventure of moods and personalities. You won’t see bright blue and fluffy clouds in the second track, Skye, but rather the threatening dark before a storm. At any moment, this Skye could unleash a torrential downpour; perhaps upon a Soundgarden below, a band whose sound may have influenced Gee Davy’s Vocalist, Jack Bielata.

Breathe is a fascinating track which the structure of the song mimics the songs subject. The slow soft start is akin to the quiet control with which many people bottle up emotion, waiting for some kind of release or resolution. As the song’s intensity grows in speed and volume, desperation grows, until finally the chorus unleashes with a command to “Just Breathe!” and “Run!”

If a song could wear sunglasses, then Burn dons the slickest pair of high end Ray Bands as it strolls down an LA boardwalk. Through the chorus, the ferocity of DJ Pearlman waling on the guitar seems to ignite fires on all sides, but the cool beat of Wayne Macgregor’s bass and Michael Bontempi’s drum carry Burn straight on through.

The minor chords of Not Fade Away (Angeline) set an appropriate tone for a song about confusion and loss. Part way through, the lyrics beg the question, “If I close my eyes would any of this matter at all?”, after which an eerie break in the music gives the listener a moment to ponder. It’s a good question, are we’re all stuck playing an adult version of peek-a-boo? Can we cover our own eyes to make pain and complication disappear? Oh please, can we?

The album ends in Oblivion, a song characterized by refreshing vocal harmonies, uplifting lyrics, and a steady beat impossible not to rock one’s head to. These all work together to ensure that the Sparticle listener finishes the album engaged and asking for more.

It makes sense that the band cites Fuel, STP and others as some of its leading influencers. Gee Davey has creatively used the sounds of its role models, combined with its own members’ industry experience, to bang out a brand new niche in the landscape of Rock.
