About Band

Amidst is an up and coming band from Los Angeles with a fresh sound that is intended for a diverse crowd. They're first album, "Never Better Than Nothing", is scheduled to release in the Spring of 2010. The band will be promoting the album with an international tour subsequently planned for the US and Mexico. The band members are Jon Marquez (piano and vocals), Michel Denegri (bass), Fernando Torreblanca (drums), and Alex Bajos (guitar).

Amidst explodes with energetic bass lines, powerful drums, driving guitar riffs and inspirational piano, synths and vocals. The band members have a great mutual understanding of their musical creativity. Each member has contributed to the writing and or producing of the album. The early days that began the Amidst sound naturally flowed since the members would hang out in the studio and would write for fun. After three months, the drums, bass, piano and vocals were written for the entire album. The guitars that are recorded on the album were written and performed by Luis Torreblanca. He would communicate with the band in the process of the writing via phone and internet since he resides in the city of Mexico. The band found a permanent guitarist this year, Alex Bajos. The album features special guests, Carlos Chairez (guitarist for Kinky) and Pablo Hopenhayn (violinist for Julieta Venegas) and was mixed by Grammy Award nominee, Mark Needham.

The band is currently spending time in the studio preparing for their tour and writing new music for their next album. They are also in the process of recording their first music video for a track called "I Need It", which will be their first released single. Tour dates and band updates will be posted on the band's website,
