Biography

Tearwave formed in the 2nd week of September 2006 in Lockport, NY (20 miles north of Buffalo,NY).

Doug White formed Tearwave with two long time friends Joe Villella and John Stephanski. Villella had been in several previous bands with White over the prior 15 years. His bass playing was always solid, melodic and as White stated: “Joe always has that knack for playing just the right notes and the right amount of notes - not overdoing anything, but getting the right feel and right lines for each song in there - and that’s not always the case with bass players. Joe was the perfect fit for the band.”

Stephanski and White met in junior high school and had always held a mutual respect for each other as musicians. Stephanski had recorded several times in White’s Watchmen Recording Studio over the years and White had always told Stephanski that his drumming was unique, interesting and like no other drummer that had come through the doors of his studio. White had always said to Stephanski “…someday, we’re going to do some recording together and it’s going to be something special.” White said of Stephanski: “He would stop by the studio and ask about my latest band and he’d always ask if my latest band was the band that was going to make it.” I always replied: “No.” White continues: “John is the most open-minded person I’ve ever met when it comes to music and spotting sounds in music. He is a unique talent, unlike any drummer, musician or person I’ve ever met.”
