Now an eclectic solo project for singer/songwriter Brandon Ginzel, New Age Cinema started out in Peoria, AZ when former members Chris Wakeley, Presley Haytasingh and Brandon Leske started a band called Fish Outta Wata and posted an ad looking for a singer. Who they found was Brandon Ginzel (originally an acoustic folk artist playing under the name Fakes Smile) through a post saying he needed a band. Brandon became lead guitar and vocals and changed the name to New Age Cinema and a year later they picked up Jonathan Mata for back-up guitar. Starting as an Alternative/Folk/Indie/Post Hardcore band, New Age Cinema played countless shows around Phoenix and Tempe for over a year and a half and then dismantled, parting their separate ways. However, Brandon, being the core of the band's lyrics & music and founder of the name decided to just keep at it, move back to Detroit, MI where he originally moved from and seek out new members. He went back to playing acoustic music again and still refuses to pick one genre to officially stay in, but most would say the base of it might be folk... for the most part, or whatever the fuck you call it.
