Biography

Formed in 2005, MoDenA began as a 3-part idea: a jam between Derek Daigle on the drums, James Carlson on guitar, and former lead singer Jordan Ait. These three produced a type of music filled with raw emotion directly focused from the player’s minds. They quickly realized their combined potential for musical success and set out to find a bassist who could match their abilities. Unfortunately, Jordan left the band in fall 2005 to attend school at UNC-Wilmington. Unsure of the band’s future, James stepped in and performed the role of lead singer as he and Derek practiced and wrote new material. Finally, after almost a year without a bass player they found an immediate connection upon trying out bassist Justin ‘Stewy’ Stewart of Durham, NC in January 2006. After only one session, they had found the right mix for a project they began to call MoDenA.

Though the three band members had found solace in each other’s work, they needed a charismatic front man to round out their sound. In March 2006, Justin Womble was added to the lineup as guitarist/lead singer and vocal duties were split essentially in half between James and Justin. James felt hesitant about adding another guitar player to the band’s simple, yet hard-edged, grunge sound but he soon realized that Justin brought a new sense of enthusiasm to MoDenA. He blended in with the existing group to form a unique sound that resonated strongly with the entire band. Their reputation quickly spread through word-of-mouth, cultivating a dedicated and growing fan base throughout North Carolina and other states as well.
