Despite vocalist Natasha's Jeanne's notable success early on in her musical career (including nominations for three Latin Grammy's, "Best New Artist", "Best Rock Solo Album", and "Best Rock Song", while signed to EMI) you are hard pressed to find her new Los Angeles based rock outfit "The Second Howl" simply reminiscing on accolades of the past. Instead you discover a band eager to let the new music speak for itself, as it quickly rises above the noise.
Natasha and guitarist Alex Darren met in their native city of Miami and began collaborating in 2008 after recognizing similar musical tastes. The duo formed "Fancy Me Yet," but in 2012 decided it was time for a fresh start and moved to Los Angeles. Upon arrival, they locked themselves in their Valley apartment and began writing furiously.
Their new project The Second Howl formed in 2013 is now gearing up to record "no apologies rock and roll" with producer Eric Lilavois at Crown City Studios in September. Joined by guitarist Neal Tiemann who was David Cook's musical director who has played such venues as SNL, The Tonight Show, and NBC's Rockefeller Christmas. Brian Hill, a Pasadena native recently joined the band to inject some much needed groove on the drums. Together they bring an energy on stage that is seldom found.
