ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
bi-phonic is a music concept project created by singer/songwriter, Dylan Alexander. However, in true creative fashion, he allowed the moniker to take on a life of it's own. A dichotomy of contrast with a reluctant desire to be one thing.

He assembled a crew of eclectic musicians. NYC's own John Nugent on acoustic guitar. Paris born bassist, Fabrice Calmettes and the Buffalo duo of David Andreana (electric guitars/backing vox) and Timm (two M's) Bielec (Drums). Inspired by their live performance energy, a self-penned rock album would be the first release in 2002.

The musical style of his first release is a sandpaper sweet dynamic of hard-hitting melodic pop/rock and emotionally charged vocals. The band exudes a youthful, energetic, and street-wise sensibility. bi-phonic deliver a raw and honest energy in their live performances, embodying the attitude of the downtown NY rock scene. They balance a refreshingly positive attitude with a gritty, play-for-keeps intensity, which is summed up in the title track, 'Rockaholic'. Contrasting attitudes are exhibited in their range from the frenetically affirmative 'It's Free to be Nice' to 'Reluctant', a defiantly charged homage to the entertainment industry. The band's bold interpretation of Captain & Tennille's 70's hit, 'Love Will Keep Us Together' has become a stirring favorite of audiences.

bi-phonic's originality is derived from triumphant vocal harmonies (a la 'Make Me Higher') combined with the acoustic and electric guitars' intertwining blend ('In Spite of Everything'). The rockbed rhythm section drives the band's intuitive stop-start signatures.

bi-phonic has been playing live gigs to enthusiastic crowds at Arlene Grocery, CBGB's, CBGB's 313 Gallery, CBGB's Lounge and the Murphguide.com's Midtown Music Festival, building a loyal fan base while developing original material. The band recently earned an honorable mention from ModMusic Records in their unsigned band contest.

Gart Zeebregts, Burpeburg Projects, Amsterdam

There really is no substitute for talent
This band does not need million dollar light shows, complicated recording equipment, or a smokescreen of silly gadgets, irrelevant gossip press or boyband-like bandmembers. Bi-Phonic is here, right now, and as real as it gets. This band has captured the very core of rock, and for one thing only; they are talented.
No doubt, Dylan Alexander carries the band, like good lead singers often do. His voice is strong, experienced and comfortable the way it is. Dylan has found his niche and works it like no-one else. A delight to listen to. Not just another pretty face, mind you; he is also responsible for a large number of the tracks on this disc. As a musician and critic myself, all I can say is; if you will get only one new CD this year; make sure it's this one.

Roxy

Full of flavor
Who do they sound like: Their sound is fresh and new. Finally a band that sounds like no other. "Love will keep us together" is a fantastic remake that you can't help but dance. "Free to be nice" has clever lyrics and is sure to be a hit. They are optimistic and full of flavor. How many flavors you ask: More than Baskin and Robins will ever have.

Lori

Great album with a fresh new sound.
Rockaholic is a great album with well-crafted lyrics, a great beat, groovin' guitars and vocals that will touch your heart. Bi-Phonic manages to bring back that good old sound of rock and roll with a new millenium New York City twist. Reluctant, So Damn Tough and Bite Me are favorites that will surely get you on your feet and singing along.

I was just surfing the net and via this link and via that link I came across this!! The RED album pic so caught my eye and then I was really impressed with the songs. This
band rocks! You can really tell they are having fun and the cover song was such a refreshing surprise. ME LIKEY!!

Andii

fun and gritty
The CD is full of fun danceable songs that retain an edge or grittiness that makes it very listenable too. The lead singer is even better live though it gets hard to hear him over the screams in the crowd....even during ballads.
