Biography

Eats like a meal. Hale and hearty, THE READY STANCE is earnest, urgent American music. Interweaving, tube-fueled guitars careen through melodic yarns with energy to spare. Poignant vocals and textured harmonies. First tracks of upcoming CD currently being mixed/mastered. Live dates beginning Summer 2010.

“When I was a kid growing up in Kentucky, on lucky summer nights, my cousin would pick me up in his Chevy Super Sport and drive me down along the Ohio River to Cincinnati to hear some rock ’n’ roll. Those were exciting times, and the bands would play late into the night, rocking soaked in sweat. When I hear the Ready Stance, these memories come back to me and I remember that Cincinnati has produced so many wonderful musicians. The Ready Stance is among that number. You will be hearing a lot about them in the future.”

“It’s hard to evoke a certain classic style without being overly derivative, But the Ready Stance really pulls it off—plus they write great songs. To me, that’s triumph.”

-Chuck Cleaver, Wussy/Ass Ponys

__________________________________________

“In these days of gimmicky indie art projects, the Ready Stance’s time-honored sound is rare. Yarns, all set to sweeping, melody-rich hooks, raw, ringing guitars, and driving rhythms—are rooted in fact and stranger than fiction; literate, image-laden observations with a penchant for classic, bent Midwestern arcana.”

-Peter Aaron, Music Editor,Chronogram
