If you know anything about Nashville, Tennessee, you know that the city draws musicians from near and far. Some are simply just dreamers, some desire to attain fame, and the very few that stand out are the ones that possess something more: raw, true talent. DNA, a group of brothers originally hailing from Imperial, Missouri, now calls Nashville their home. They are said “without a double...[to be] headed for success in the music industry. Strong vocal harmonies, instrumentals, original lyrics and stage presence…the perfect package” (Hard Rock St. Louis, MO).
Chuck (lead guitarist/ fiddler/ vocalist), Champ (lead vocalist/ pianist/ guitarist), and Chase (bassist/ cellist/ vocalist) are all influenced by major music legends such as Queen, The Beatles, Muse, and The Eagles. The fluidity to their pop-rock sound strikes the listener as something new, fresh and different. The band says that they want their music to have positive and creative lyrics, great harmonies, and musical excellence.
The band has played all over the nation, at both small venues and shows up to sixty thousand people. They have opened up for country songwriter, Jeffery Steele, in St. Louis and have played at multiple large-scale venues such as 12th and Porter in Nashville, Hard Rock Café, the Rutledge Nashville, the Old Rock House, and multiple music festivals in VA, Nashville, and NC. DNA played a promotional tour last summer (2013) that hit hot spots all over the country. The band is currently touring throughout the U.S. promoting their current new single.
In April 2013, DNA released their six-track EP, “Personality.” The album can be found online at www.thebandDNA.com. The band’s new single, “Saying Things,” will release in August, and are currently working on the release of a new album next spring.
DNA is just as they’ve named themselves: a band with a composition so unique, there is no other band that replicates their inimitable form.
