Five Step Drop was formed by songwriters Alex Ilich & Charlie Costa after a lengthy search for a frontman to take the band to the next level. With bassist Tony Bock, Alex & Charlie were persistent in auditioning multiple singers until the right person for the job was found! That person was Jeremiah Medema who has an amazing voice and frontman personality to deliver their unforgettably hooky chorus's ranging from a ballad rock style song like "Senses Lost", to more of a punky sound with their incredible catchy song "Habit", to their melodic rock song "Solitude" which many are describing as their "best track" off of their EP which is cleverly positioned as Track #1, to their more aggressive and heaviest track "Fall" which will get you all pumped up to win your next football or hockey game for instance, or if you are having a bad day and can't stand your boss you will absolutely love hearing "Fall" afterward!
In the months preceeding the formation of 5 Step Drop, the band has played many successful shows to reach out to their "grass roots" fans and to stimulate the desire to write and create new original music for the fans as well as the hard- rock starved city of Chicago. They just wrapped up their 4 Song EP which they will be selling at shows and online sites such as CDbaby, itunes, etc. The band has plans on completing a full length album by Fall of 2011. Get ready for some great songs to listen to with catchy hooks that will have you coming back for more!!
