"Let's face it," explains Capehart's bassist, Mike Torres, "when some people hear that you're a pop-rock band they assume you are less authentic version of rock. Our goal is to prove them wrong."
Capehart is a punch guitar powered vehicle driven by harmonic vocals and respect for melody. "We are what we eat," confesses lead vocalist/guitarist Jason, "We love to turn up the volume and sing along to fist pumping, hard rock vocals like Foo Fighters or mellow rock like Jimmy Eat World." With Capehart's new album, "So The Story Goes," the guys intend to bridge the gap between teenie-boppers and mature rock enthusiasts. Capehart's MySpace friendly track "My Medicine" provides a vocal anthem for the Twitter kids with a chunky, hard-hitting breakdown for 80's Pop Metal fans. While "The Breeze" will please piano rock junkies, "In My Sights" is a louder treat for the moshing connoisseur.
Two years ago Capehart left the laid back suburbs of Omaha, Nebraska to make a new home in Chicago. Comprised of key members from other area bands that dominated the local music scene they set their sights on a larger goal. Their mission: allow the popular and competitive Chicago music scene to challenge them to write the best music of their lives. Capehart relocated to the Windy City in early 2008, obtained crappy day-jobs and began attending shows and writing new music. "We knew immersing ourselves into a major music market was the next step in Capehart's growth," says drummer, Kip Marshall, "and the growing pains are paying off. We've learned more in Chicago than we ever could have learned back home."
Capehart's approach for their upcoming release of "So The Story Goes" considers current trends in the music industry in relation to the average listener's priorities in our current economic state. Capehart formed FluxCap Records in 2009 and built a relationship with Apple, Inc to become an independent digital music distributor for iTunes. Through the use of free promotional downloads and additional financing through their side-project cover band, MotherCover, Capehart has become a marketing machine, handing out free music at concerts or music stores at the fraction of the cost of a sampler CD. "Our goal is to build a very close, very personal fan base at any cost," says Matt Mikula, the keyboardist, "We believe our fans want to be heard as much as they want to hear us and we love connecting with them." Singer Jason Struebing adds, "Local music is a community and we take pride in contributing to Chicago's world famous scene and we are truly excited to show the world our craft."
