picard / Bio

picard started as a solo/personal project by Jason (Skwerlz) Ulwelling formerly of Orestus. The sound didn't fit any of the previous bands or projects he was involved in, so the tracks sat on the back burner. The initial intention was to get some ideas tracked and do some personal music. It was only intended to be shared with friends and family.
Friends and family began to share as popularity grew the decision was made to name the project and create a facebook page. Other musicians from the area became interested and the project began to get a little more serious.

Mike (Spicy formerly of Orestus) Donaldson, Eric Giardina (Formerly of Black Flood Diesel, Currently with Sounds of a Fallen Echo and Senza) were immediate additions. Rob (Sinestro of Orestus) Zimmerman has recently become involved as well as Brad Hanson(No Loving Place, Senza) , Cory Dahl(South Farwell) and Phil Juodis(Easy Chair)

With the release of "One Moment" the movement into a live act and a full album to be released next fall is set in motion.

All current members are involved in the writing process now and recording is underway in hopes of a release early to mid 2013. Live performances will start shortly after the album release.
