Formed in the conservative world of southern Ohio, Brass Owl has never been a typical band. With a bona fide shred master on guitar, a powerhouse drummer and a bassist with a distinctive retro style this power trio is poised to take over the scene. Their jam-oriented sound is not just a testament to the bands past accomplishments, but also reflects how tightly they have gelled as a unit. Their music is reflective of a lifetime of playing music a deep understanding of rock and roll. With a new record coming out soon, one cannot help but to get excited for what these Ohio boys are going to be pulling out of their hats next. The mastermind behind this project, Brian Tarter is thrilled to finally have a band where he has embraced being both lyricist and vocalist. This music gives him a platform to not only show off his Steve Vai approved licks (Tarter performed with Vai after winning a shred contest in the 90s) but also bring his songwriting to a new level. The band act as a tight unit combining all manner of musical ideas through a unique blend of jaw dropping hooks and thrilling, largely improvised solos. Avoiding both tired stoned rock and roll clichés and maintaining a concise approach to songwriting, Brass Owl aspire to be a new kind of jam band. Brass Owl is a band who have not only paid their dues, they have nearly a century’s worth of experience between the three of them. They are ready now to go out once more and claim the hearts of a legion of fans. With a sound that appeals to everyone from modern rockers to stoners, classic rock maniacs to acid jazz heads, Brass Owl are unafraid to push the boundaries. This is not just another jam band, this is a group with a distinct artistic vision, a motivated team, and the passion, combined with the know how to go far beyond the dives they cut their teeth in.
