Biography

Fort Wayne IN, United States (2002 – 2013)

Young, powerful, and entertaining, Downstait is a band that holds nothing back, either in the studio or on the stage. Their songwriting reflects talent and ability beyond their years and is a unique blend of the best of modern hard rock… the thunder of Godsmack and Sevendust… the melodies of Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin… all tied together by Daren Call and Sean Arata on vocals. With an average age of barely 20 yrs old, Downstait has been rumbling under the surface of Fort Wayne, Indiana’s music scene since 2002. Always ahead of their age, it wasn’t until 2006 when WBYR program director, Stiller, heard something special in lead singer, Daren Call’s voice and reached out to producer/singer/composer, Sahaj Ticotin from the Universal/Republic band Ra, to see if the band had potential.

Sahaj agreed and took the band under his wing to help develop the sound that we know as Downstait today. He was surprised to find that lead guitarist and songwriter, Justin Call, shared a love for the progressive 80’s band Queensrÿche and was quick to include a dramatic element to Downstait’s signature sound. As writing continued, Downstait had more surprises up their sleeves. Bass player, Sean Arata, proved himself to be quite the vocalist, adding rich harmonies or deep screams to an already rich vocal landscape. Rhythm guitarist, Isaiah Zwick is the soul of the band onstage, raining energy from beginning to end. Smiles and ferocious intensity flow throughout the set. Their live show is explosive.
