Biography

Open Chapter are an American rock band from San Antonio, Texas. Open Chapter was Emanuel Garcia (vocals and lyrics), Paul Michael Riojas (guitar & live background vocals), David Michael “DMyke” Damian (drums) and Abelardo Arellano III (bass). Open Chapter consists of four creative individuals, persistent to bring their story, original lyrics and music into the heart of mankind. Manny, Abel, Paul and Dmyke_____ are the elements that make up the band—a new chapter in rock music.

Manny and Paul originally formed a band, Last Chance, at Harlandale High School in San Antonio to enter a talent show. They developed some songs and won their first talent show. The guys were instantly hooked on performing live shows. Since then, these guys drew the attention of everyone they cross paths with including: colleges; churches; the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender (GLBT) scene; animal rights activists; and tattoo conventions. Open Chapter is a word of mouth phenomenon. Open Chapter is often asked how they came up with their name. Manny and Paul are Shinedown fans and really like the song “Fly from the Inside”. In the song the lyrics say, “I am focused on what I am after, the key to the next open chapter.” Paul says, “It made sense to name the band Open Chapter to signify the end of the Last Chance and the beginning of something new.”

    These guyz need to head to an underground bunker to cut another round of trackz. Open Chapter's sound hit me the very first time I heard frick'n "NUMB", theze guyz definitely are talented, it's a shame, hope they can work things out and get crank'n some tunez again.. Open Chapter needs to come back with the "Next Chapter" hopefully soon, hope theze guyz read up on there shoutz and realize they got some fanz out there...
