Driven by their love for music and passion for self-expression, Matt Ross and Billy Jungifer started Sudzert early in 1997. Shortly after, the guitarists found themselves settling in with drummer Ryan Celestino. Then, at only 12 years old, Matt penned their first single 'Wait,' which was recorded that year at Jerk Records Studio in Middletown NJ. Within a month of release, that single had risen to 'Top Ten' status on MP3.com's NJ Rock charts. The first couple years were filled with appearances at NJ favorites like The Saint and Hooligans. The three-piece advanced to the semi-finals in the Jersey Shows Battle of the Bands, gaining them the respect of many local bar owners. In 1999, Sudzert recorded their first EP, entitled The Know How. Filled with four tracks of guitar driven rock, The Know How sold extremely well and supported the band's growing fan-base. As their popularity grew, the band picked up local guitarist Mike Williams. With the addition of Mike, the band hit the studio once again and tracked 2 songs: Last Time and Absence. This demo put Sudzert on the map as a local rock powerhouse. This demo brought them to the next level and placed them in huge concerts opening for bands like SR-71, Soulfly, Blessed Union of Souls, Bad Fish and many others. In the summer of 2003, Kevin Conroy joined the group as the new drummer. Kevin, formerly of the NJ based band, Knocked Conscious, came on board just in time to start the group's first full-length release. In October of that year, the band began a 7-month process under the management of Darren and Justin LeBlanc. The production of Where Do I Turn culminated with it's release on June 9, 2004. Initial response to the record is startling. Radio play has increased dramatically and demand for the group is quickly rising. With passionate vocals and driving rock riffs, Sudzert has defined their niche and is actively pursuing a full-time career. Their intense performance and melodic rock songs are capturing more and more fans each day. After the release of Where Do I Turn? Sudzert went through a couple of changes loosing Mike Williams and gaining Tommy Garcia and Jonathan Reyes. With Tommy's driven lead guitar riffs and Jonathan's ambient sounds Sudzert is now finally complete with sound they have been looking for.
