Album Notes
The Secret Resistance is a new band from New York City. The members are Jackie Wells (Vocals), Chris Scianni (guitars), Dave Borla (drums). The Secret Resistance sounds like a contemporary version of Garbage, The Pretenders, and Blondie. Chris and Dave have been playing together for a while in other projects including Dangerman (Sony 550) and Echobrain (with Jason Newsted, former bassist for Metallica). This new project features the unique vocal talents of Jackie Wells. More information located at and check out each individual members personal myspace page!

a true underground power.
from the time you press play, until the spinning comes to a graduated hault, this cd will captivate its listeners. jackie's compelling vocals take you on a journey of highs and lows while the uniquely diverse styles of borla and scianni's instrumentals leave you wanting more. with its vividly designed package, this six song promo won't disappoint.

Upscale, Pure Rock
The Secret Resistance’s promotional CD kicks off with a powerful punch. A polished well-crafted product - after listening to this CD - you’ll be asking for more. The first song “Sweet Darlin” to the last one “First Real” keeps the fire burning. Jackie Wells’ vocals are crisp, pure and bluesy - reminiscent of old-school rocker chicks such as Blondie and Pat Benatar. Chris Scianni’s guitar work is phenomenal scorching guitar licks and Dave Borla’s drumming is explosive. Songs are upbeat and still sexy pure rock. So grab this CD, get in your car and go drive!

Think Lenny Kravitz’s rock band meets Weezer, which then meets Blondie...and the
Based out of New York City, The Secret Resistance is a rock trio consisting of: Jackie Wells (Vocals), Chris Scianni (Guitars), and Dave Borla (Drums). All three have been working on a single, covert mission: To produce and record songs in preparation for a potential first album.

With an uncanny physical resemblance to Debbie Harry from Blondie, Jackie Wells serves up the main duties as the lead singer for The Secret Resistance. She originally hails from the state of Virginia, but yet fits in well with this highly urban trio. Jackie’s vocals have all the goods to sound like a modern-day version of Blondie or Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. However, her sound is unique enough that she can take full ownership of it in The Secret Resistance.

The great versatility and rock sense that The Secret Resistance has can be highly attributed to the musical talent and experience that both Dave Borla and Chris Scianni bring to the band. As accomplished artists in their own rights, Dave Borla and Chris Scianni are the duo from the group, Dangerman (Sony 550), which produced a unique, first and only self-entitled debut album, which received wide and well-deserved critical acclaim by Rolling Stone Magazine circa 1999. Other past notable projects by Dave and Chris include groups like, Echobrain with Jason Newsted (former bassist of Metallica), Tangiers Blues Band, Big Blue Squid, G13, Cooley High, and the John McEnroe Band. What? Yes, that is correct. The great, legendary tennis star, John McEnroe, was the lead singer and guitar player for his own band that was on tour in the mid to late nineties.

The Secret Resistance’s songs are full of amicable as well as disparate flavors to choose from. In describing Resistance’s songs and trying to come up with a former and/or current rock artist comparable, think Lenny Kravitz’s rock band meets Weezer, which then meets Blondie, and then finally meets up with Dangerman. With that said and taking aside the analogous, rendezvous-like comparisons, the possibilities are endless on the numbers of different sounds that The Secret Resistance can creatively conjure up. A song like “Sweet Darlin,’” is extremely reminiscent of the seventies group, Blondie, while the “Star” sheds a retro take with a sixties psychedelic vibe. Yet, aside from these two songs, with the talents of Scianni and Borla, The Secret Resistance’s sound can be magically altered once again to sound more up to date with “Carelessly” along with “Nothin’ Feels Good (Parts 1 & 2)”. Finally, “First Real” is a song that Jackie takes full command of for showcasing her talent as a lead singer.

With the scarcity surrounding the lack of female lead vocalists fronting bands today, The Secret Resistance fills a much-needed void in today’s current rock music scene. With performance gigs currently in New York City, the once clandestine trio will be highly suspect to increasing their visibility.

This is your Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Bob\'s friend. First, let me again tell you how touched your voice was at Jessie\'s funeral. Your version of Amazing Grace was just that. My daughter absolutely loved meeting you and wants to communicate with you on line. I will let her get on this website so you can chat. My Godson, nephews and brother all play acoustical guitar and are extremely talented. My nephew is Eddie Lauer who has played in Fells Point for years. My nephews are Vince and Jeff Salamone who are all having cd\'s made.

I grew up in the Blondie Pat Benetar/Pretenders era and loved their music. I am glad we got a chance to meet. I will try and get your cd so my JLo, dad and I can enjoy your wonderful talent. We look forward to seeing you again in a happier time.

This is a great band and cd. This band rocks!
This band rocks! If you like Blondie, you will love this band. The guitars, drums, and Jackie's vocals are awesome. I have been listening to it in my truck for several days. :)
