Album: Motionless - The Windmill EP

Motionless is: Chris McTarnaghan, Jay Penman, Matt Reed, and Adam Tedeschi

Motionless is also occasionally accompanied by violinist Katie Fortier.

Motionless was formed in the summer of 2001 in Mansfield, MA. Although the name has stuck, Motionless is very much a different band today then it was then. Several members have come and gone since that summer, Matt Reed (guitar) and Chris McTarnaghan (drums) being the only original members of the band today. Since its birth Motionless has seen many different faces, and has gone through many different forms. Slowly morphing from one sound to the next the band has never made it a point to restrict themselves to one certain sound.

Motionless encourage you to download all of their music and show it to friends, friends of friends, close relatives, distant relatives, and strangers. They strongly support filesharing, and gladly make their music available for free, but if you really do enjoy the recordings and there's a bit of small change in your pocket maybe you can throw it in their collective guitar case!

Band: I Am Jack

'I am Jack' formed in York in early 2002. The band - Alistair Hay (drums), Ewan Fisher (guitar), Matthew James (bass) and Matt Langham (vocals / guitar) - came together through a series of mutual friends and adverts, putting together a collection of original songs to make their live debut in the summer of that year. Subsequent reaction to this show brought about a change in attitude and priorities - the consensus being that this was a band greater than the sum of its parts; a band that had a chance of becoming something special.
The period that followed saw the band taking time to hone their material, expanding their sound by pushing more abstract leanings onto their current song templates. To accommodate their perfectionist approach - the band's maxim being never to repeat themselves - existing songs were painstakingly scrutinised, pulled apart and pieced back together. This culminated with the release of a self-titled EP in the Spring of 2004.
Recorded and mixed in a bedroom over the preceding five month period, the sessions for these four tracks saw the band embracing any technology available to them to refine and expand their sound whilst being careful to retain a simple warmth and realism in the songs.

In August 2004, Alistair Hay amicably left the group to follow other pursuits, prompting the arrival of Jan Minx on drums in September of that year.

The band's second CD, "Stockholm/Subside" was released in February 2005.

The band is currently back in the studio working on further recordings - no release date is confirmed.
