Alloy is a band comprised of five self taught musicians that create music with hopes of inspiring you. Our goals are simple, play with our heart, mind, and soul and let the chips fall where they may.
We all come from lower, middle, and upper class backgrounds in three different parts of the state and two different parts of the country; Terrell, Garland, and Greenville Tx. And now our newest members from California and Massachusetts. As people we are as different as night and day such as our choices in music and in life, yet we share some common core beliefs.
Alloy was formed in early 2008 when Thomas Mcdonald (Bass Player), brought an old friend of his from Terrell, Texas, Chas Eacret(Lead Guitar/ Lead Vocals) to a new jam spot in Thomas es home town of Greenville, Texas. Thomas had been jamming with Tony Welch(Autistic Drums), from Garland, Texas, for 2 years at Tony s house with a host of other good players. The next time Thomas ran into Chas he made sure to give'em an invite to check it out. Chas arrived one morning with a grin on his face and a bottle of whisky in his hand. After the three of them played for hours on end that day, they knew they had something that wasn't bad at all. Chas strongly suggested that they form a band and play shows around town, so Thomas gave 'em a name and that was the beginning of Alloy. In 2011, a fan of the band from California named, Jeff Newton(Electronic Drums), had a party after a Alloy show in Dallas one night and he and Tony had their drum kits set up alongside Chas to burn the midnight oil. When Chas heard the unique sound that was created from the two different styles of percussionist holding the same time, he felt it had great possibilities. Jeff was brought in. In 2012 the idea of adding a guitar player was raised, so enter another fan Dave Meyer(Rhythm Guitar) from Massachusetts. He was the lead guitar player of a metal band for four years and was Alloy's number one choice for the job.
Alloy has evolved over the years into a heavy blues sounding rock that has a refreshing honest attitude. The best way to describe the music which is created by Alloy is the sound of rebellion. In the mind of Alloy, the purity of its message and the real energy of its music comes first. The time of fluff music and tracking shows is over. Alloy has used principles of integrity, honor, and respect in their song content from day one. So they don't per scribe to self deprecating ideals and actions that don't make sense to the average Joe. That's why they strive to follow the analogy that in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.
