Biography

John Kosco - vocals
Lee Richards - guitar
Joe Wilkinson - guitar
Jim Preziosa - bass
Bob Jenkins - drums

You know you’ve got a good band when the lead singer of a four-time-Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum group makes you the first signing to his new label. But you know you’ve got a great band when that same artist also wants to play on your debut album. Such is life for Dropbox, who were signed by Godsmack vocalist Sully Erna to his new imprint Realign Records.

The magnitude of Dropbox’s monster talent reveals itself in their thrilling self-titled debut, an unrestrained outpouring of iron-fisted backbeats, sprawling melodies, and monolithic, Led Zep-like bombast. Produced by Dave Jerden (Alice In Chains, Jane’s Addiction, The Offspring) and Dropbox guitarist Lee Richards, the record captures the timeless feel of vintage rock, complete with the whiskey-soaked croon of a vocalist who can actually sing.

Free from creative constraints, the quintet lets loose with dynamic arrangements and electrifying performances. The result is an album with a big, meaty sound, propelled by a tightly drilled rhythm section (bassist James Preziosa and drummers Erna and Bob Jenkins) and a guitar tandem (Richards and Joe Wilkinson) that blends blast-furnace riffage (“Run”) with streams of ambient texture (“Take Away The Sun”).

    Sounds like 2 parts Alice in Chains, maybe 1 part Black Label Society... not all that original but definitely listenable hard rock... I'd probably agree that Kosco would be a better fit for AIC than William Duvall currently is

    I agree with thoughtcloud, which is why I changed my tags from 'Dropbox' to 'iTates'. Its catchier anyway.

    I like how these guys are getting the plays for Tates work. Why did he pick the same name as this band? xD he probably doesnt know Anyway, basically an amateur DJ is making tracks and last.fm counts them as this bands songs, due to both musicians/bands being called 'Dropbox'. OOPS XD

    Always thought this was a really underrated band. The only reason I ever checked this band was because they beared similarities to Alice In Chains. Forgotten Song <3
