Single currently available on iTunes:
Meet vocalist Will Crafton, guitarists Brad Wagner & Troy Harmon, bassist James Nalley, & drummer Kevin Nordeste. It just so happens that the group of young twenty and nineteen year olds all bear their father’s name, hence the title “Namesake“. Mixing together an exciting blend of rock and pop, they deliver a uniquely fresh, edgy and musically well-defined sound.
Drummer Kevin Nordeste describes their new record as one with “Powerful emotional lyrics, in your face guitar solos, and killer drums”. Without a doubt, Borders & Fences is bound to captivate the hearts and ears of music lovers everywhere. “We tried to find the best things about all the musical genres we loved, which ranged from pop, 80’s rock, and even death metal and somehow mash them into one big musical monster, which we feel we accomplished with this record” says singer Will Crafton.
Along with the support of Imagen Records, Namesake plans to take their music and message to the masses until they have everybody singing along. This is only the beginning for the hungry and hard-working bunch.
Tour plans to be announced soon.
