Album Notes
It wasn't supposed to happen, but it did . . .

As a blend of today and yesterday's sound of Hard Rock, TWOTONRHINO energizes and delivers.

Established April 15, 1994, TTR began rehearsing as a four-piece band that slowly evolved into that of a power trio. The band is fronted by Jay Cascio (vocals and bass), with Mike Hollis (lead guitars) and Richard Hutchins (drums) filling out the rest of the lineup.

The band began as an alternative rock band with edgy sound effects blended into music that was played in sometimes-unique time signatures. As time progressed, the band found its true identity within its own honesty and slowly began playing a more streamlined hard rock sound. Says Jay - "We never really understood what kind of band we were. We never gave the thought of 'identity' any consideration until just a couple of years ago. It took us time to understand that, but it's something we didn't know we had to understand for quite some time. If we knew it sooner, we may have progressed quicker. The band, through experience, just learned to be honest about the approach we wanted to take with our music, and our honesty is best revealed in the harder, grinding sound of hard rock. It's so much better than attempting to write music only for the sake of trying to be different from our peers in the music industry. Bascially, we realized we'll never be some kind of U2/G&R/STP/Radiohead fusion. We're TWOTONRHINO, just a rock back writing cool rock tunes."

The band is backed by the well-timed, in-the-pocket beats by Richard. Says Jay, "he know's when to pull back or aggressively engage in the material. Even better, he's always curious to know if he can improve on the beats he's already impressed us with. There's no other drummer I'd rather work with than Richard."

Mike's influence on the band has been profound to say the least. His sound made a huge impact on the music in the few years he's been with the TTR, and his band philosophy is refreshing. "Sometimes he'll fret over material and sometimes he'll just let it flow naturally. He never, never loses his mind. He never creates stress, he never allows himself to be stressed. His attitude and approach to music is just amazing."

Jay's own bass style is largely influenced by the sounds of hard rock and rap from way back when. "I had an eclectic taste in music dating back to when I was just a little shit in the world. At any given time, you'd find a mixed cassette in my radio with both Guns and Roses and RUN-DMC on it. Sometimes it would be Def Leppard and Public Enemy. My preference in music always bounces back and forth." His vocal style is similar to those same influences, but possess it's own unique edge. "When I first started singing, I had no clue to what I was doing. In time it finally came to me. I learned to be more candid in my approach."

In it's own time, TWOTONRHINO has been praised as one of the best energetic, hard-hitting, melody-oriented bands by many professionals within the music industry. Their style of grooving beats, fluid bass sounds, unique guitar riffs and deep aggressive vocals is truly one of a kind and makes them stand out from the rest of their peers from within the genre of Hard Rock. Their eclectic catalog of songs bounce back and forth from hard and intense to upbeat and vigorous - complete with pulsating guitars, hard beats, steady rhythm and intimate lyrics.

Radio-friendly music. A tight group of friends. What once started as a band with no expectations to one with all the expectations in the world - TWOTONRHINO continues to revel in its longevity. On the musical road in which they travel, there appears to be no end in site for the steps they take.

Think Blue

One night I was at CBGB's in NYC and it happened to be on a night that this band called TWOTONRHINO was playing. Long story short, they kicked a** and ever since I've looked for a CD or something from them. I found it and bought it. After listening to FOUR, the first thought that came to mind was - FINALLY! Finally I found a CD from them and finally a band got it right. These days, most bands try the CLING-ON approach to their music. They try to CLING-ON to whatever the latest trend is. TWOTONRHINO seems to get it right on their own terms and deliver FOUR solid songs that pack a punch from start to finish. I wish it was called TEN! Then I would've had 6 more songs to listen to. I'm hooked. I'm looking forward to more material in the future from TTR.


They rock for all original
heard FOUR and was phat- first saw these guys in the city but i think they had a different drummer at the time, at spiral and at CB/GB's - they rock and everytime i happened to see them they were better then last- keep'em coming guys - i am soooooo glad i finally got a CD so i can throw it in my Car and pump it up when i need to clear my mind- SWim baby SWim .... like a fish.....
