When listeners hear them they dig it!â€ Mark Justice- Program Director WXTQ Athens, OH BIO: Since their inception in early 2000, ACRES has quickly emerged as a strong voice on the southeastern music scene. As one of Atlanta, GAâ€™s premier pop/rock talents, ACRES has shared the stage with renowned acts such as Collective Soul, Jason Mraz, Train, Tantric, Alice Peacock, Oleander, Josh Joplin, Rusted Root, Drivin Nâ€™ Cryin, and Arrested Development. ACRES combines powerful vocals, gritty guitars, a tight rhythm section, and strong story lines to capture the attention of fans and music critics alike. This was evident when they won four readers choice awards in Atlantaâ€™s premiere entertainment magazine Creative Loafingâ€™s â€œbest of Atlanta 2002â€ issue, including best overall band, best rock band, best vocalist (Tim Acres), and best songwriter (Tim Acres). The band features Tim Acres (guitar, lead vocals), Dan Bauman (bass guitar), and Jen Lowe (drums). February 2005 marked the release of the second ACRES CD â€œ3 Minute Moviesâ€ featuring the single â€œDirty Little Secretâ€ which made the top ten best rock/alternative song list in the 2004 USA Songwriting Competition. In May 2005 ACRES made their television debut, featured on the TBS documentary show â€œTBS Storylineâ€. The show outlines the bandâ€™s music and history, and is still aired periodically in the South. ACRES plans to release their third studio album, â€œFor the Lost and Foundâ€, Spring 2006. Their 2002 independent release â€œPet Rocksâ€ received critical acclaim and nationwide radio exposure. ACRES received airplay on 35 commercial stations across the United States, including daytime BDS airplay on WPLJ in New York (nationally ranked #1 market), KIIS in Los Angeles (nationally ranked #2 market), and 14 other BDS stations. Soon after hitting the airwaves, ACRESâ€™ single â€œOne Way Believeâ€ responded immediately with station programmers, and shot into the top ten most requested on Panama City Floridaâ€™s Hot107.9, a nearly unheard of feat for an unsigned act. The band has since received international recognition with seven thousand radio spins in Taiwan to date. ACRES has played for tens of thousands of enthusiastic music fans at festivals, colleges, clubs, and music conference showcases in the south (including Music Midtown, Dogwood Festival, Coca-Colaâ€™s On the Bricks, Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta, Turner South, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Thrashers, the U.S. Army) and they continue to draw large audiences with their explosive live show.
