The Composure are a real rock band from Pittsburgh, PA, a city that has seen few bands find success on a national level. Members Paul Menotiades, Jeff Wendle, Seth Milberger, and Cory Muro present their first LP, Strings Attached, an album written very carefully over the course of three years. Producer Marc McClusky (Weezer, Farewell, The Appreciation Post) and The Composure began recording the record in Chicago and finished at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California - a story book closing to a long recording journey, featuring Dave Grohl's drum rug and Tom Petty riding by on a motorcycle.
Independent record label Modern Short Stories, founded by Steve Soboslai and Chris Fafalios of the band Punchline, unleash Strings Attached on November 23, 2010. It is a audible manifestation of just how focused and devoted they are to what they love - writing and performing their music. Their first single, "Stop Now, Start Again," is paired with a visual representation that ties the concept of the album cover to the idea of people hearing irresistible music and being drawn to it.
While the band credits everyone from Saves the Day to Hall and Oates as influences, it's clear that they are not trying to be anyone but themselves. The Composure are pop rock and punk rolled into one Converse wearing package, delivered to you with an outlook of a very bright future.
