A group of friends started a band in 2009 under the name Bruceworthy that included Brian Johnson (Guitarist), Jeremy Ferack on vocals, and Bruce Brewer (Songwriter-Motivator). The group started off by doing acoustic covers and very quickly started writing original material. At first it was just going to be something to do for fun, but then it started to become a serious project. Brian met Mark Pisaneschi (Drummer) in college while they were both going for their Associates Degree in Sound Recording Tech at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, MI. At first, he didn't even know Mark played drums, as Mark never talked about it in classes at all. One day however, he overheard that Mark was a drummer so he asked him to audition for his new band project; from there, Mark got the part. Shortly after that, Jeremy told the group that he wouldn't be able to take the band seriously. Being that they needed a bassist as well, it became a long, tedious, and annoying search to find both a full time vocalist and bassist who wanted to write and play the style of music which Brian and Mark had developed over a year or so plus have the talent to do so appropriately. During that time, Jeremy and Bruce still continued to help work with Brian and Mark as they continued to work on new material. In spring of 2012, after a long time deciding on a name for their new project, Mark and Brian settled on “Catechize” as the official name of the band. Finally in December of 2012, the long search for a singer came to an end as Brian and Mark met Aaron Moore. Aaron became the singer and also introduced Nathan Zrnich (Bassist) to the band, which created a whole 4-person group. After their first show, Aaron informed the band he could not continue with them. The search begins again. Enter Matt Cox (Vocalist). After working with him nonstop for 2 months, the band decided he was the perfect fit for their sound and joined up as the full time singer.
So now its 2013 and Catechize is ready to take the music world on. They plan to release their EP, start playing shows, and show people what they are all about, with inspiring songs meant to lift your spirits and motivate you through the power of good ol' rock n' roll.
