Biography

Before Nine has been a solid gulf coast music force pumping out its modern rock sound and sweeping through the southeastern states for some time now, but is soon to storm all fifty states. The band seamlessly merges an edgy sound and soulful songwriting in a way that touches audiences both live and on the radio. The transformation of the band in 2008 has been an extraordinary collaboration of musical talent. Founding members Chris Barker (Guitar) and Dwayne Barker (Bass) of Lucedale, MS added local Mobile musicians, David Merriam (Vocals), and Mark Merriam (Guitar) and Billy D (Drums) completing the fusion that seemed to set the band a blaze. The unique style of the band has a universal appeal to many different genres and is large market radio friendly. The songs are dynamic with great guitar riffs, strong hooks, powerful lyrics and amazing harmonies. The profound abilities of the band members and their devotion to the integrity of their music have proven to keep their fans wanting more. The members all love writing music, recording, but are real performers and have a passion for live performance. It would not be uncommon to see one of the band members in the audience during a show singing or giving it up on the guitar or bass while the drums are rocking out.

Before Nine has performed at Mobile’s Bayfest, the Mullet Fest and many other local and regional festivals. They have also played such venues as The Swamp in Ft.Walton Beach, FL and Club Le Vela in Panama City, FL. They have had the pleasure of sharing a stage with a variety of national touring bands. This year the band is gearing up to expand their tour schedule and look forward to getting their music to a worldwide audience.
