a 4 piece band from New York who typifies the everlasting love affair
we all have with the raw power, energy and emotion of rock and roll..."

The problem with the music industry is that there are not enough
bands like Finespun. They are persistent, hardworking and aggressive.
These gentlemen exploit every possible opportunity that comes their
way. When there isn’t a visible opportunity they have a knack
of creating their own. On the bands latest CD, entitled “Fracture”,
Finespun welcomed producers A.J. Resta and Karyadi Sutdjeta who
were interested enough in the group to lend their professional skills
to the product.
They're regulars at clubs in the northeast and open for the likes
of Gilby Clarke (formerly of Guns 'N Roses), Wheatus, The London
Quireboys, Hookah Brown (Black Crowe's), Kings X and For The Taking
(Ex-Fuel & Apocalyptica lead singer Toryn Greene) and most recently
Tantric. They tour the US from New York, Philadelphia, Maryland,
Austin and everywhere in between. In addition they have played showcases
at SXSW( 2003, 2007, 2009, invited 2010, 2011) , Millennium Music
Conference 12, 13, 14 & 15, Miami Music Festival,2010. As a
result of this exposure and their continued popularity, they were
also chosen as one of the top fifty bands in the country by Coca-Cola's
New Music Awards.
The New York based band is Oren Barak (vocals, guitars), Steve Licata
(guitars), Doug Tammany (bass, vocals), and Ed Grazi (drums) and
is without a doubt a band to watch not only on the New York circuit
but also throughout the nation. Finespun generates much of its stage
presence and studio creativity through a sense of respect for musical
long-term goal for Finespun is to gain more fans and further extend
the reach of their music. Offering tracks like “Hourglass”,
one of the heavy hitters off their new release entitled “Fracture”,
“Against The Fallout”, a ballad that speaks from the
heart and “4 Walls, 1 Window” which takes a introspective
look at ones frustration, success is simply eminent. They also maintain
a very active website, www.finespunmusic.com, where you are always
able to find new audio and video fresh from the studio. Finespun
is a band that should be recognized as a band for the people with
an ultimate goal of touching you with their music.
creativity has always been fused from each member. There is no turning
back for Finespun. This bands mission is to play their music for
a living. Singer and guitar player Oren Barak sums it up, “we’ve
all dumped our life’s blood into this band. This is all we
want and there is no alternative.” When asked about the opportunities
that are present for musicians drummer Ed Grazi mentions, “independent
artists get so much more assistance these days because of online
services. There are so many more resources to embrace and exploit.
You just have to get out there and do it.”
this time, Finespun is currently gigging around the east coast in
support of their release “Fracture” and enjoying working
with their label Rat Pak Records.
