Biography

Breaking Pangaea is a movement based on energy, dynamics and the transfer of emotion and ideas through music. Formed in January of 2000, the Philadelphia trio, lead by singer/guitarist Fred Mascherino and drummer Will Noon, immediately composed and recorded an ep entitled, Take Apart The Words. The ep’s unique sound and texture was met with wide acceptance and after constant touring, was later picked up by Florida based Undecided Records. Breaking Pangaea took to the road with a passion and work ethic rarely seen in today’s fledgling bands and by spring of the following year, had completed three self-booked tours and established an enthusiastic regional following.

Fall 2001 brought the release of the band’s debut album, Cannon To A Whisper. Engineered and produced by Mike Fanuele (production manager for Dashboard Confessional), Cannon To A Whisper showcases a band coming into their own with influences ranging from Jeff Buckley and Sunny Day Real Estate to Van Halen and Led Zeppelin. Among the band’s most striking characteristics is the songwriting of singer/guitarist Fred Mascherino. Mascherino, who earned a degree in jazz guitar from Temple University, effortlessly constructs an elaborate interplay of passionate vocals and layers of unique, jazz-infused rock-based guitar. The debut album was heralded for its display of intense dynamics, dramatic crescendos and skilled harmonies.
