Porcelain Clocks brings all inspirations to the table. A listen to their debut, "Mirror is Calling", makes one realize that writing what they like to listen to and play is more important than being defined by clichés, formulas, and templates. How could such diverse modern acts like Radiohead, Muse, Deftones, and Kings of Leon continue to satisfy themselves as artists, if they continued to release the same album time and again? Each artist makes the music they love, for the audience that loves them.
Begun as a side project by singer/guitarist Dan Cahill, it quickly blossomed into so much more. Auditions were held, and it was quickly determined that local artists Josh Broccollii (guitar/singer) and Dan Long (bass/singer) would be the right men for the task, both accomplished in their own right. Drummers came and went, until the band found themselves with an incredible show opportunity to perform at one of the hottest night clubs in CT. A risk was taken with Seth Craig, who proved to have both tremendous talent and drive.
Each member has been playing music since they could pick up an instrument, with influence taken from both other artists and past bands. Major acts such as Failure, Deftones, Braid, Cave In, Tool, Cage the Elephant have played a role in shaping the sound. In the New England scene, each member brings influence from minor acts such as The Next Extension (Cahill), Sacforel (Broccollii), Intolerance (Long), and The Prozacs (Craig), among others.
The band has some great credits to its name, including a "best band in ct" nomination from the New England music awards, playing Foxwoods on several occasions, and many important venues in and around the New England rock scene. 2014 will bring with it a music video, some international shows, and as always, the next step in forward thinking music.
