Rock Music is Dead—Long Live Rock!
Disillusioned with the current state of corporate, prefabricated, cookie-cutter rock music, One False Move (OFM) chose the path less taken. Formed with an eclectic mix of musicians from various generations and styles, the resulting sparks ignited a fire of creation rather than duplication. And that is exactly what the doctor ordered.
The band formed in 2014 from the ashes of a regional cover band. Singer, guitarist, and principle song-writer Curtis Nightingale used his decades of music experience to develop a vision for the band. Bass player Norm Bennett, himself playing in bands since the 70s, and Keyboardist Brandon Wade, formerly a touring musician with a major motion picture soundtrack credit to his name, were the first to lend their talents. Drummer Daniel Graves, a fixture in the Wichita scene and most recently touring with the George Navarro Band, rounded out the lineup. With this group of talented musicians, each from what are considered to be the most influential decades of rock music, this band would not simply pay homage to those decades, but draw on musicians that were involved in each one to create something new.
“I have always believed in music you have both copiers and creators.” said Curtis. “Not that there is anything wrong with being a copier, that in itself is an amazing talent, but in my mind being a creator in music is the point.” With a writing style that bounces from their 80s Metal roots, to the new breed of Hard Rock, OFM’s style is hard to nail down; and they wouldn’t want it any other way.
