Somewhere Up There / Bio

Somewhere Up There is a Rock group based out of Oneonta, NY that has been gaining much attention throughout the past few years. The band started in the fall of 2011 with long-time friends Nick Squillante on vocals and Rob Farella on drums, as well as their roommates Nick Juliano on keyboard/synth, and Joe Frappaolo on guitar. A few months after the start of the band, members Rob and Joe hosted an Open Mic Night in their dorm building. There they found Kyle Sisco who then joined the band on bass guitar. In just a few short months, Somewhere Up There wrote their first EP “Northern Lights” and released it on iTunes as well as all other major digital distribution platforms. Several hundred units were sold between the digital sales and physical sales combined. The EP stirred up a lot of buzz throughout SUNY Oneonta and the band quickly gained a loyal fan base. Somewhere Up There followed up the EP release with many shows on campus and in the town of Oneonta at local bars. They set up their own small tour around NYC, Westchester, NY, and Long Island, NY as well as opened up for some well known names such as: Handguns, Patent Pending, State Champs, City Lights, Veara, and Survay Says! Somewhere Up There was also chosen to perform at the 2013 Relay For Life event at SUNY Oneonta, which they performed in front of close to, if not more than a thousand people. The band has also performed several times on SUNY Oneonta’s radio station 90.9 WONY FM along with a live acoustic performance on SUNY Oneonta’s TV program “The Wire”. On December 21st, 2012, Somewhere Up There released a new single entitled “The End” on iTunes and all other major digital distribution platforms. They are currently in the writing process for their first full-length album, which will include their single “The End.” Somewhere Up There’s sound started out with a Pop/Rock feel in their “Northern Lights” EP, being influenced from bands like: Mayday Parade, Blink-182, and Owl City. With their latest single and the direction they are going with their new album, they can be considered brother bands to acts such as Avenged Sevenfold and Coheed And Cambria.
