Standby For Transmission / Press

“Stan Hulsey (Standby For Transmission) often rocks out but some of the best moments on the album are the ones that are the most subdued. Take for instance the title track “The Disconnect,” which sounds a bit similar to Local Natives in the way that he combines reverb-laced clear guitar and vocal harmonies to form an attractive lush landscape. Another solid number is “Get Out,” which successfully combines electronic and organic instruments. The song starts off sounding like something you might hear from The Postal Service and eventually mutates into a rock song. Hulsey delivers some of his best vocal melodies on “Dance” when he sings “Promise me, that you won’t break my heart / Dance with me, I won’t waste your time.” Some of the songs such as “Rain” and “Crazy” that called for distorted guitars and were taking up lots of frequency space weren't working that well with lo-fi aesthetic.

“RATING SCALE "1" Indicates the Lowest Score "5" Indicates The Highest Score Recording Quality/Production: 4 Lead Vocals: 4 Musicianship: 4.5 Lyric Writing: 4 Music Composing: 4 Melodies: 5 Song Arrangement: 4 Quality of EPK Content: 4 Overall Delivery: 4 Thanks for submitting the material for the evaluation. I enjoyed the songs very much. Excellent writing, guitar playing and tone. The majority of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range in the various categories. Whenever an artist sees a 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 as a score in a certain category (or categories) it means that's an area I feel they need to improve and develop. When an artist sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, it's a validation from a professional, confirming that the songs are of the highest level and show strong potential in the ultra-competitive music industry. I don't give out 4's and 5's easily, so any of those you see, you have earned. Well done! Best wishes, Gene Foley www.FoleyEntertainment.com”

“Who’s Standby For Transmission? Standby For Transmission is a solo project created by Stan Hulsey, a multi-musician that has been playing in bands since 1996. It is a collaboration of songs written , performed, and recorded by Stan himself. How you got started in the music scene? My father was a musician in a local cover band for over 20 years. I have been surrounded by music since birth and was playing drums from the age of 4. Around the age of 9 I gave up playing due to a lack of attention span on lessons. Around the age of 16, I started learning how to play guitar, knowing full well that I would be inheriting a massive amount of expensive vintage guitars and amplifiers eventually, so I should probably learn to play them. A few of my friends also played, and when we started talking about forming a band, I was the only one that had drumming experience, so I started playing again. That is when my first band Accidental Evolution was formed. ”
