It’s a rare occasion when the integrated expression of three creatively charged musicians invokes a feverish fan anticipation that has encircled Orlando's newest Pop/Indie Rock band KASSON. They strive to craft drivingly new euphoric music works to create a goose bump - enticing combination of raw vocal talent and songwriting that echoes within central Florida's most popular music scene. With classic bass tones, integrated drum beats, tight rhythms, driving lyrics, and a fresh sound, KASSON is changing the face of this new and growing raucous indie rock revolution.
The band is comprised of members Durik (Lead Vocalist), Evan (Drums/Vocals/Keys) and Jordan Telesca (Guitars/Sax/Backing Vox) KASSON was derived from twin brothers Durik & Evan on how to show the world true feeling and release through music. The journey began with Durik who performed studio and live drums for many different bands but was unhappy with most vocalists. Coming from a family of singers and performers he grew up with twin brother Evan singing and harmonizing with his family before bedtime but was lead to be a drummer at the age of 15 instead. Until family friend Andy Anderson (Engineer for Tony Battaglia & Pete Thornton), requested a lead singer studio audition for an up-incoming RCA recording artist. Knowing the chances were slim and with only the experience as a drummer/backup singer he was persuaded to record the tracks. Since the label had already auditioned singers for a whole year and lack of studio experience he didn't get the gig, however it left a burning desire in him to pursue the act of singing and starting his own band. From that moment on Durik continued to work with sister Danielle and other supportive family members on vocal training beginning the the journey to writing his first song called "Can I Be" later to also be requested to record studio vocals with diamond award winning multi-platinum producer, Gary Carolla (Producer and song writer for N'Sync and Aaron Carter).
Still toying with the idea of starting a band, he began to collaborate with identical twin brother and drummer/pianist Evan whom was already self indulged with producing music. From there, KASSON began to develop. In collaboration from an influential mentor, Matthew Watson, and a pressing urge to move forward by the twins. Auditions and jam sessions evolved when Guitarists Jordan Telesca was found and shared a similar strong passion for music, adding creative guitar riffs and tight rhythms, they were the perfect fit. With all the pieces of the puzzle in place, KASSON was formed.
With their fresh to the ears Pop/Indie Rock sound, KASSON has shown to created an all original staple music sound that appeals to almost any demographic. "We choose to never fit into any one genre of music. Diversity is strength." (KASSON Band members) On stage, KASSON has proven to wow central Florida with their ability to jam and create new songs at shows, and rotate instruments. "Its been years since I have seen a band be so instrumentally in-tune to rotate roles on stage. They are simply in it for the music," states Tommy Haze (former producer and engineer for Westland Studios in Dublin, Ireland). It’s just one extra added pleasure to the euphoric KASSON live experience. Currently, KASSON is entertaining venues all around central Florida, and is vigorously working to write, record, and produce their full length CD. Backed by alluring fans and supporting bands, KASSON is only just beginning to explore the seemingly endless potential of their mind blowing creations through single handedly changing the face of music-
