The Of Truth and Stories saga began in 2006, when chance encounters and good luck came together to begin a series of events that led to the formation of this dynamic new group. Chris Alexander (lead vocals, keys), Matt "Buzz" Buzanowski (bass), Craig Guidry (drums) and John Miles (guitars) came together with the desire of creating a musical style different from the rest...and Of Truth And Stories was born. Based in the burgeoning music scene of Orlando, Of Truth and Stories set out to differentiate themselves among the rest of the areas up-and-comings acts; with a high-energy live show and a focus on creative song writing, they quickly began to establish themselves in one of the country's most competitive music scenes. With each member bringing their own musical experiences and passions together to create a new, exciting sound, they produce a blend of drama, energy, and creativity that is unique among their peers.
Their HIGH-IMPACT new album was produced by rock icon Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, Creed, Framing Hanley, Faktion) and mixed by veteran music maker Pete Thornton (Paramore, Sullivan, National Product). The band drew the attention of mega-producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Breaking Benjamin, The Almost, Dropping Daylight) for their first single That Guy. Recorded and mixed in the summer of 2007, their debut E.P., PROLOGUE features the groups blend of synth-infused grooves, hard rock, and honest lyrics, resulting in an album that is a mix of high-energy rock and thoughtful ballads. It also marks the bands first official release since signing with ReAmp Entertainment Group.
Since forming, the group has toured and captivated audiences all over the southeast. The band has taken stage at festivals and events such as the Glitz n Glamor Tour with Rookie of the Year and Roses are Red, The Florida Music Festival (FMF) with Seven Mary Three and JR from Dishwalla, Rock the Vote, Rock for Hunger 2, and Orlando's annual Ole' Festival.
