The Band Apollo / Bio

Nominated by The New England Music Awards for best artist in Maine for 2014, The Band Apollo delivers a unique blend of pure rock infused with hints of soul and club-style pop. Their signature sound is attributed to frontman Jonathan Johnston's recognizable vocals, Jonathan (JTru) Truman's edgy, eclectic style of drumming, and Ben Packard's creatively subtle, yet assertive lead guitar work. The Band Apollo's distinctive sound draws influence from a variety of artists ranging from Muse, Audioslave, and Bruno Mars, to Maroon 5, Frank Ocean, and John Mayer.

The Band Apollo’s first EP features "Bad Company”, their first single to receive airplay in Maine on 98.9 WCLZ Music from 207, and “Little Red Dress”, which ranked #3 on WTOS-FM Homegrown Top Ten for 2012. They completed recording their second album, titled “Soldier or a Spy”, at Hearstudios in Camden, Maine, featuring the same team from Nashville who produced and recorded their first EP: Grant Norsworthy, a Grammy-nominated/Dove Award-winning artist, and Darrell Lehman, sound engineer for Mute Math and The Band Perry. The new album is scheduled to be released fall 2014.
