Phonolux / Bio

Phonolux – An alternative, indie rock group possessing a vintage sound

with modern style.

The concept for Phonolux emerged in 2005 when the band’s founders

Dave Novak and Buddy Calvo were driven to try a unique format for a

musical group. Both being multi-instrumentalists, at first the goal was to create

music without each member being limited to playing solely one instrument

on every song. And so began the search for like-minded musicians who

were fluent in all the essential instruments to play rock and roll: guitar,

bass, piano, drums, and vocals. Eventually, Art Guillermo Jr. and Miguel

Romero Jr. joined the group, completing the band’s line-up. In the Fall of

2007, Phonolux began writing and rehearsing original material with plans

to record their first album, which was recorded and produced by

the band themselves and was released in November 2009.

The follow up album, Nashville Fires, was released in

2012 to positive reviews. In early 2013 Phonolux ventured to Austin, TX to record their

third studio project at Jim Eno's Public HiFi Studio. The EP is entitled "Feathered Fortress"

and scheduled for release July 15th, 2013.

In late April of 2013 founding member Art Guillermo Jr. left the band to concentrate

on family and music production. In May 2013 Armando Mora joined Phonolux on bass

as the band begin to write all new material and rehearse for its return to the stage.

The band also directs and produces its own music videos and continues

to gig regularly in the Texas region.
