Down Theory / Bio

Welcome to the world of Down Theory,
a four-piece modern rock outfit proudly
representing Jacksonville, Florida.

Down Theory features the immense
talents of Nick Lee on vocals, Matt
“Mathmatical” Hall on lead guitar, Scott
King on drums, and Derrick “D-Rok”
Gilrie on bass.

Forging a new direction in modern rock, Down Theory is constantly broadening their musical repertoire. Taking pride in having no two songs sound alike, Down Theory continually traverses new territory, with each song taking the listener in a new direction. And no path is left untraveled when it comes to what musical avenues this new age quartet will explore: drawing inspiration from all genres and styles of music, Down Theory’s signature sound is an eclectic combination of hard rock, punk, funk and modern rock. To fuse these various styles into one unique sound, Down Theory utilizes a solid song structure with intense hooks and dynamic rhythms, and delivers it all with an energetic, flawless performance. From the chest pounding drums to heart rattling bass, crushing guitars and strong melodic vocals, Down Theory’s timeless soundscapes are not easily forgotten, and the raw emotions of every song stay with you long after the record has finished. Down Theory is the all American band of the future. They are a group of positive attitudes poised to take on the world.
