Psycho Spoon / Bio

PSYCHO SPOON began in 2010 with friends and band mates- Rick Ballenger, Lead Vocals and Pete Hammoura on Drums. With an Incredible sound of "High Energy Balls To The Wall Rock and Roll," this band produces powerful songs that give fans A Great Rock Experience To The Core!

Their debut album "INCOGNITO " is a strong collaboration between Rick, Pete and their former guitar player. "By locking ourselves in the studio" they created this AWESOME project "INCOGNITO ", which was produced by Guitarist Karl Sanders, mixed by Grammy Award winning Producer Neil Kernon and mastered by Alan Douches. Karl Sanders also contributed by playing all Rhythm Guitar tracks on the cd. All lead guitar solos were handled by native Thailand guitarist Decha Tangitkietikul, and bass tracks were laid down by session master Brent Boone.

A multitude of influences have contributed to PSYCHO SPOON'S approach in creating their brand of ROCK'N ROLL. Some of their greatest influences range from The British Invasion bands to Motown to hard rock and metal. Artist like Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains, Velvet Revolver and The Cult have helped shape PSYCHO SPOON'S tremendous sound while every effort is made to be organic, honest and as individual as possible.

With some personnel changes over the past couple of years, 2015 has seen some major changes for the band: Joining the ranks are Dallas Toler-Wade on Guitars and Brad Parris on Bass, both of whom are in the famed Death Metal band Nile. While maintaining their priorities with Nile, Dallas and Brad have an outlet with Psycho Spoon to play some balls to the wall Dirty Rock and Roll. Rounding out the lineup on Guitar is long time friend Brian Ellis.

New music is in the works with Rick, Dallas, and Pete collaborating in the writing process with the plan of recording a new album in 2016. But at the moment, promoting the Success of "INCOGNITO " is top priority by touring with their highly energizing show!! PSYCHO SPOON'S sound and flavor set them apart from the rest of the pack. YOU'LL KNOW YOU'VE BEEN ROCKED BY THE REAL DEAL!!!
