“We never planned on any of this,”
says front woman Emily about being in an upcoming band. But when a person is born for a purpose, whether you are looking for it or not, it finds you.
This is the case for new alternative rock band, Shine Bright Baby formed in late 2007. Hailing from the sleepy town of Orrville, Ohio, they have an impressive repertoire in a short time. Within the first three months of practicing together Emily Irene (lead vocals) and Nathan Fertig (guitar/vocals) crafted together a 6 song demo (Brace Yourself EP). Later, they were joined by their friends Hudson Taylor (bass/vocals), Josh Fink (guitar/vocals) and Karl Wendel (drums) and did not wasted any time to make music that explodes onstage with energy and passion.
Now, the curtain is rising and the stage is set for these five unlikely individuals to answer to their calling. Their newest release (May 2009), “The Heart and Its Hope” EP includes the energetic single “We Were Made To,” a song that Yes FM reviewers call “a fresh sound for this period of time.” Scoring a slot at the renowned Christian music
festival Alive in June of 2009, has given the band the publicity needed to take them to the next level. Touring the
tri-state region has built them dedicated fanbase both online and in concert. With sales and media attention rising, it will not be long until the depth and range of their talents are unveiled for eager ears worldwide.
“I really do see a ton of potential…and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Shine Bright Baby”
Jared, House of Heroes (Gotee Records)
“We discovered Shine Bright Baby at another venue in our area, and we were instantly drawn to them. They have such an energetic sound, great stage presence, and great talent. Shine Bright has become a crowd favorite and one of our "standard bands" at Wired!”
Scott, owner of “Wired” (regular venue in Mansfield, OH)
“I get sent demo CDs every day working on Music Row in Nashville, and like you, I end up tossing the CD into a growing pile of poorly-produced, lazily performed, and generically uneventful music; e.g. trash can. When I first met the young members of Shine Bright Baby, I smiled to myself and said, “now that’s what ‘IT’ is supposed to be.” These kids are a fresh group of incredibly talented, influential, and ridiculously cool musicians who can influence the direction of their own generation’s pop-culture; a sound investment for any serious music distributor.”
Jesse Nemitz, CEO of Singing Success Inc.
