My Radio Everything I Know
Surfacing in Boston in early 2002 with a strong debut record and a potent live show, it took little time for those in earshot to take notice of Chauncey. The group garnered multiple nominations from the Boston Music Awards in 2002 and 2003; and received the honor of 'Best Rock Album of 2002' by Boston Magazine. 'They seamlessly move through melodic rock, deliberate feedback jams, and all out primal rockbeat happenings with lean ferocity,' comments rock critic Jerome Leslie, in considering Chauncey's live show. This 'lean ferocity' is brought on by a quintet comprised of -- JP Powell (vocals, keys), Jake Zuckerman (guitar), Jon Bistline (bass), Eliot Hunt (guitar), and Shawn Marquis (drums). Three years after releasing their critically-acclaimed debut record, Chauncey presents their sophomore effort, 'My Radio (Everything I Know),' recorded by legendary engineer Steve Albini. ** 'Chauncey is a band that has the chops, but more importantly, it possesses heart and soul. Any band that wants it that bad just might make it.' --Dan Aquilante, New York Post 'We were one more Creed song away from slitting our wrists when Chauncey's self-titled debut- loaded with swerving melodies, bending rhythms, and emotional truths- revived our faith in rock'n'roll.' --Boston Magazine 'Chauncey ably preaches the smart-pop gospel.' - Joan Anderman, The Boston Globe 'Modest power pop brilliance.' - Stein Haukland, Ink19.
