Secrets in a Jar
Scream Sophie has become synonomous with melodic hard rock music. Never a band to follow a trend, the band combines various elements of old school hard rock with new, alternative-influenced sounds of today. Infectiously heavy melodic rock music is a fairly accurate statement! Is this CD for you? Are you kidding? This CD is so for you that it secretly freaks you out! Tired of cast-and-die cut bands, the latest teen diva, and sterile technorock? Good! You've found the right band! Scream Sophie originated as a recording project late in 1999 when guitarist and songwriter Curt Granger began writing and recording new material. Shortly after beginning the project he enlisted the help of drummer, and recently turned-vocalist/guitarist Timmi 'G' Ward. The two forged a strong songwriting alliance and the Scream Sophie machine was born. With melodically rich, heavy tracks like 'Everyday,' 'Alive,' and 'Black Cloud,' the band delivers their trademark riff-heavy sound once again on 'Secrets in a Jar.' There's also a few introspective tracks such as the bittersweet, laid back acoustic stylings on 'Half the Way' and the super-radio friendly heayy pop track 'Breathe.' Paying tribute to some of their influences, the band closes the disk with the fun yet sophisticated tune 'Love's Too Hard,' evoking early images of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Throughout the Beatlesque chorus, the love song is dreamy and comfortably familiar, but with a tangle of individual rock and roll affliction. Scream Sophie continues to unleash their live show on more-than-willing audiences, and are steadily gaining recognition both regionally and internationally, via radio play, heavy internet marketing, and touring. A growing fan base, pure determination, and a love of the music is what drives this band to perfection and the quest to expose their musical vision to the world.
