Who is Settly? (Pronounced Set-lee) Settly is a self-taught musician who started his career playing in a Power pop cover band. He later started writing his own music and started a band called - Multiple Places. Multiple Places had a good regional following in his native town of New Orleans. But the success was cut short following the death of his lead singer. So Settly decided to move to New York to play guitar in Warner Bros. Recording artist band -Raw Youth. After touring with them he got a job as a house engineer at New York's Tin Pan Alley Studios where he ended up working as second engineer for the Beastie Boys album 'Ill Communications'. He also recorded and co-produced Matador recording artist Railroad Jerk's "One Track mind" and "The Third Rail" to critical acclaim as well as worked with artist such as Peter Holsapple and Glen Tillbrook. But soon the recording itch to record his music was in desperate need of scratching. So he moved back to New Orleans to work on his first solo recording project. The project was released under the band name ZOOM and 8 songs were released. ZOOM was just going to be a recording project but soon the band decided to start playing live. Several years of playing in and around the gulf coast took it toll on Settly and the band and they decided to split. Now Settly is back up in New York where he as just released his first solo self-titled CD. 'Settly' is a collection of songs showing his range and depth in his songwriting. With the CDs instrumental beginning to instrumental end, in-between you will find power pop-rock gems.
