Solution was brought together by the forces of music in january of 2012, and has had an incredible ride in their short existence. They met one fateful night when singer/guitar player, Nick Papageorge, was set to open acoustic for the already existing band comprised of drummer/vocalist, Jeff Berger, lead guitarist, Sean Jefferson, and Bassist, Chris Dorame. The singer of the band was a no-show, so Nick filled in for the 45 minute set, and the new foursome started rehearsals two days later! Their dynamic California sound takes you on a roller coaster ride between the sweet reggae rhythms, and heavy distortion, expressing an array of emotions and styles.
Solution's explosion onto the OC rock-reggae scene has been hard to look past. They've been nominated for Best World Artist and Best Live Band for the second year in a row in the 2014 Orange County Music Awards, they were a finalist for the 2013 OC Music Awards Best Live Band, had multiple articles in the OC Register and OC Weekly, and have shared the stage with artists such as The Green, Pato Banton, Passafire, Seedless, JBoog, Fortunate Youth, True Press, Natural Vibrations, Midnite, and so many other amazing artists! The highlight of their first year was the release of their debut album, "Take Me High," which held a staggering presence at House of Blues in Anaheim, California, with only seven months under their belts. Within the next four months, the creation and release of the "Sacrifice" EP was inspired by all the people who had helped Solution at the starting line, by tuning in and making the live performances so electrifying with crowd energy. They felt it was only fitting to give the EP away for free online, as a thank you to all those people and the people still to come! Their third release,"Sunday," was in July of 2013, which was a summertime feeling leak-single, off their highly anticipated upcoming album, set to release in early 2014.
With so much accomplished together in such a minimal time span, the boys in Solution are excited to bring new sounds and energy to the reggae-rock community with every song they write. Their appreciation of their fans is huge, and they dedicate any and all success to those who consider themselves just that. Without people to listen and love, there would be no reason to create. So thank you for being about music...and stay tuned!!
