Band Bio

In the year 2006, long-time friends and band members Colin Healy and Jacob Bauman decided they would officially launch the band “The Republik”. From rock to jazz, Beatles, Lincoln Park, Barenaked Ladies and Dave Matthews, The Republik appeals to a broad range of alternative and indie genres. This cd called “last chance planet” demonstrates the exciting and diverse talents of this band’s young musicians. Composer and lyricist Colin Healy now 20 years old, was only 16, when he co-produced this CD. Healy is the band’s lead vocalist, plays rhythm guitar, keyboards and violin. Jacob Bauman now 18, was 14 when he played bass for "last chance planet". Emily at the age of 13 was the talented drummer for "last chance planet". Alberto Pizarro a long-time friend of Healy and Bauman joined The Republik as the lead guitarist in 2007, just after the release of "last chance planet.

Healy and Bauman became friends while attending a South Florida performing arts magnet program where each began playing violin in second grade , and where both were selected to perform with the Broward County Honors Orchestra which included award-winning performances in national orchestra competitions. Healy went on to join the South Florida Youth Orchestra. Additionally, they are active members of their high school’s drama department, both performing and directing in theatre productions. Pizarro began playing violin in third grade, and also played for the Broward County Honors Orchestra . He was also a student of the magnet program where he became friends with Healy and Bauman.

The Republik’s independent CD, “last chance planet.”, continues to receive favorable reviews. For example, it can be heard online at Numberonemusic.com/therepublik/ where, to date, this band’s song’s have had 356440 plays since first appearing in November, 2007 on the charts.
Of the nearly 800 bands found in the indie category, The Republik’s songs “last chance planet” and “everything comes up gray” have hit-the-charts at number 1 also the song “Think” has hit number 2.

Mark Woodbury of the band Curbstone gave the following commentary on cdbaby.com, “Let me just say that when my wife and I listened to the CD, we were blown away. Being a musician myself I have really been impressed with the creativity and passion that Colin and his friends have shown.”

The Republik has performed at a number of local venues, including Dania Beach Grill, Paulo’s 3’s Company and Docker’s Bar and Grill, King’s Head Pub all in Dania Beach, Florida, and Capone’s Flicker-Lite located in Hollywood, Florida. Additionally, the band headlined at the 2007 and 2008 Dania Beach American Cancer Society’s “Relay For Life” events.
In April 2008 the band was asked to play at Barry Univ. in North Miami Fl. for a large yearly event “Relay For Life”.
In February 2009 the band was asked to play a wonderful event called Garlic Fest in Delray Beach Fl.
The Republik has performed at events held at the Broward County Convention Center and numerous private affairs.

Future plans for band members include production of their next CD, continuing their music education, and performing at various local, state, and national levels.

BANDMEMBERS BIO
Colin Healy has had a passion for music since second grade. Healy has performed for the Broward County Honors and Youth Orchestras. Involvement in the Performing Arts Program of South Florida inspired and enabled him to create songs and lyrics that are a reflection of his feelings and personal life experiences. Private lessons and continued training gave him even more passion for music and performing. During his early teens Healy met and bonded with fellow musician, Jacob Bauman. They formed the band “The Republik“. Healy, singer, songwriter, guitarist, violinist, pianist and co-producer of the band’s first CD, titled “last chance planet.,” says that, “My songs mix real life situations with deep philosophy to produce heavy lyrics with symbolic meaning that everyone can relate to. No song I have ever written has been sad, happy or whatever. They are all a bunch of words that mean something to me on a personal level, however they are written in such a way to act as a mirror that everyone can see themselves in.”

Jacob Bauman attended the South Florida Performing Arts Magnet program and the experience provided him a strong background in tempo, comprehension and composition of music. Private lessons and continued training lead to a passion for music and performing. During this time he met and became best friends with Colin Healy. Bauman, at Healy’s suggestion , learned to play bass guitar. As a bass player, violinist, and back-up vocalist, Bauman has been described in an article in the Dania Beach Press newspaper as having “ A knack for creative bass lines; a fast fingered freak of nature.“ Harmonies come naturally for this aspiring musician and his on stage direction helps bring the band together.

Alberto Pizarro has always had an obsession for music. Rhythm and beat were taught to him starting in the third grade while attending a South Florida Performing Arts Magnet program. Pizarro strayed from the life of music for a few years following elementary school graduation.
“My biggest regret in life, up to this point, was not continuing with music after the fifth grade. The middle school I attended had a music program, but no one to teach my instrument of choice, the violin.” Fortunately, Pizarro refocused in high school and starting taking guitar lessons. A bit of a head banger at times, playing the guitar has taught Pizarro to let loose. “I am constantly studying music now and practicing guitar everyday. I love the feel and sound more than you can imagine!”
Pizarro has been a member of The Republik since 2007.

Beau Million played drums for The Republik from 2008-2010. He is our talented drummer for "The Unexpected Answer"

Bright lights and a stage beam the promise of bigger and better for The Republik and they answer the challenge. Tunes are penned and produced by these very talented young musicians and the result is, well written powerful music. Colin clearly sings his words so you can understand the message within the song, the beat of the music will deliver you to your destination. It\'s the independent spirit of this band that makes you believe anything is possible.

The Republik rarely slows pace. These guys are constantly playing and producing new sounds, writing and recording which keeps their sound fresh. The band holds true to their original cut, by performing each track as it was meant to be played: with destination in mind and a cargo to deliver.

These guys are all about drive and determination. Catch them when you can.
The Republik are planning to make a stop at a station near you soon.
Buy this CD you will love it!!!

Last Chance Planet
I've known Colin since he was 14 as well as Jake his friend and bandmate...

Let me just say that when my wife and I listened to the cd we were blown away! I had to call Deb and Colin right then and tell them that "I felt like I was in the prescense of Greatness"...Being a musician myself I have been really impressed with the creativity and passion that Colin and his friends have shown! See ya on VH1 Repubik!!

Jennifer Williams

fun

Counting the days when you next album is coming out....you are the Next Great American Band!


He has been writing songs and singing since childhood
Colin's music is the kind of music lots of people like. It's no accident that whatever form of band Colin has had over the years, he has packed houses and sent people away with a smile on their face and a song in their hearts. This singer has it all - a comfortable air of self confidence, a no nonsense delivery that cuts to the heart of his songs, and that edge that go's out through any crowd. He writes songs that we can all relate to and chooses familiar grooves that can satisfy most any musical taste.

Colin has the unique charm and charisma that capture an audience and have them become friends as well as fans. He takes the time to sing and play songs that have a story, purpose and a reason that reflect his own experiences.
It's time you hear some new music this CD has it.....Get it here on Cdbaby I did and I love it!!
