The Scenery / Bio

From the classic Motown hits all the way to Eminem’s worldwide success, Detroit continues to convince the world that there must be something in the water...and The Scenery has clearly been drinking plenty of it. The 3-piece Motor-City miracle was formed in January of 2008 in Mesa, Arizona, where they began writing and recording their first 7-song EP Motion Creates Emotion with producer/engineer Justin Salter (Snoop Dogg, Jonas Brothers, Lil’ Wayne, Alicia Keys).

Following the departure from his previous band Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Justin immediately took interest in The Scenery’s unique and catchy songwriting ability while recording at The Saltmine Studios and eventually became a fifth member as their drummer from 2008-2010.

As a result of their growing success in the west, the band moved to Lost Angeles in the fall of 2011 to write their 6-song EP It’s Only Weather, which was later produced and engineered by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Versa Emerge) at The Wade Studio in Ocala, FL. Shortly after the release of their EP in 2012, the band took to the road on their first full U.S. tour promoting It’s Only Weather which created a large amount of national attention in the indie/pop scene, selling out 4 consecutive hometown shows at The Modern Exchange in Southgate, MI.

In June of 2015 the band will release their debut album titled "Gossip", produced by Bryan Beeler (Chiodos, Cinematic Sunrise, The Swellers). The 10-song full length will be available for only a dollar through all major online retailers and remaining donations will go to charitable organizations including child Autism and The American Heart Association. The mainstream pop album "explains every single aspect of life in a way that keeps things from ever getting too serious,” says lead singer Anthony Daraban. With some reviews comparing the music to today’s top pop hit makers such as One Direction, Katy Perry and 5SOS, The Scenery is continuing to progress in a way that puts them on track to be one of the most listened to bands this year. A full U.S. tour in support of Gossip is planned for the fall of 2015.
