Formed in late 2011, ATA came to be as a result of singer/songwriter Henry Coke closing out his solo career and beginning the process of recruiting the musicians needed to perform his newest material. Kelly Panter (Inside Light, Seven Story Drop, Ashley Lee, Exit 380) was the first to team up with Coke after hearing some early demos. Evan Scates (Inside Light, 32 Cents) and Richard Muenckler were later recruited to complete the lineup.
With the help of producer Bryan David (Plano, TX), ATA crafted the six songs on their debut EP 'We Are Waiting' based on their appreciation of UK indie, US alternative, and classic rock influences. Each song features textured vocals and instrumentation that weave through each other to create a fresh spin of the rock-n-roll wheel, rather than try to reinvent it. Audiences can expect to hear upbeat, vibrant songs with hook-filled melodies that create an infectious live show.
The debut EP 'We Are Waiting' will be available December 1, 2012 on iTunes, Bandcamp.com, and Soundcloud.com.
