Transpose was started at the beginning of 2006 in Camden County, GA and immediately the band started writing songs that would eventually become the debut album.
Gold certified producer Scott Fravala (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) attended a show in Jacksonville, FL and was impressed enough to approach the band and offer them to record the debut album at his studio in Orange Park, FL. Transpose recorded from July – September, 2007 and the album, "A Delicate Impact," was released independently in April, 2008 to positive reviews and impressive sales at shows and on iTunes and Amazon.com. The first single from the album, "Only The Dead Go Free," was part of WJAP-Jacksonville radio's rotation throughout the summer of 2008.
After playing shows throughout GA and FL for two years supporting "A Delicate Impact," the band returned to the studio to record the second album. Transpose’s second album, “Retribution,” was recorded in March, 2011 with producer Paul Lapinksi (who also worked on “A Delicate Impact”) at My Platinum Sound Studio in Jacksonville Beach, FL. The album, a conceptual storyline written by Brian about a broken man’s reaction to infidelity, saw the band experimenting more in the studio. Some of the new sounds include the addition of keyboards, functional samples to help tell the story, and acoustic guitar.
In April, 2011 Transpose played a showcase in Jacksonville, FL for TzMR Records out of North Carolina & New York. Owner Bill Trimble invited the band to play a second showcase in Daytona Beach, FL in May, 2011 and offered Transpose a record contract at the conclusion of that showcase. On May 26, 2011 all the signatures and requirements for the contract had been met and Transpose was officially signed to TzMR Records for 12 months.
“Retribution” was released in June, 2011 by the band as well as iTunes and Amazon.com. A cover of Digital Underground’s “Humpty Dance” had been recorded during the sessions and was released as a stand-alone single on iTunes.
Transpose is currently shopping record labels now that the conract with TZMR Records expired and was not renewed by the band.
