If you took Jeff Buckley, Tears for fears, Pink Floyd, And Coldplay, put them in a sack and
shook really hard, out would come the fourth album from ULTRATONE. It’s a concept album
set in the future, that tells a story about a world with no pain. This new album is their most
ambitious album yet, taking you on a ride with songs that weave together a tale of a futuristic
world, where space exploration has led to a what would be a society changing discovery.
Musically, this is a story as well, with exciting ups and poignant downs, and with a sweeping
rich production that keeps the listener engaged throughout the story.
In the 90’s, Joe Scheirich and high school orchestra buddies, Luca Bianconcini and John
Hulcher, formed the prog rock band, JOE’S REPORT. Locally and regionally gaining popularity,
they released a couple of EPs and one full-length CD.
In 2001, Joe went on to form ULTRATONE with a more modern, melodic sound. Having gone
through serveral lineups over the last decade, today Ultratone includes Luca and John, with
Jeff Cohen and Carl Stuck, all the while with Joe at the helm and recording in Joe’s Studio at
his home in Louisville, KY. This is a group of musicians who can pull from different styles while
maintaining an unmistakable sound of their own.
ULTRATONE is: atmospheric layers of sound, a powerful yet tasteful rhythm section, a vocal
style with a lot of dimension, and intelligent, hook-laden songwriting. Live, ULTRATONE shines
with tight, emotional performances. You don’t want to miss this band.
