Nemes is an unquestionably unique 4 piece rock/folk band from Worcester, Massachusetts. Led by duel frontmen Dave Anthony (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Knowles (Violin/Vocals), with Alex Glover (bass/guitar/vox) and Chris Anthony (Drums/Vox) creating a walloping rhythm section, the band brings what Worcester Magazine calls “a nuclear power plant's worth of energy” to any venue they enter. Energy isn't the only thing Nemes is focused on though. The band's songwriting, involving memorable lyrics and catchy hooks, will always be at the forefront, followed by a wide array of top-notch musicianship.

Since being named one of Alternative Press' top 5 unsigned bands in 2010, Nemes has embarked on multiple tours of the Eastern US, self-produced and released an album entitled "Don't Flush Me" in 2012, achieved viral success with their interpretation of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box", and most recently released a live acoustic EP entitled "Five Minutes" which showcases uniquely intimate arrangements of songs which will be featured on their first studio full-length album, "I Carry Your Heart", due out in early 2014.

The bottom line is that Nemes is motivated, capable, and ready to take on any audience put in front of them.
It all started with an email. Stephan Nordgren sent James Forbes a message in the early, frozen months of 2015:

“Hey, do you still have that guitar pedal for sale?”

They met, made the exchange, and - as most musicians do - shared their respective projects. It only took a single listen of Stephan’s self-recorded 2012 EP, “In Hardwood Groves” for James to commit himself fully to SEBIO’s rebirth. After a handful of bedroom jams, some emails to friends, and a hastily-procured practice space, SEBIO (SEE-be-oh) was now a full band, hard at work polishing the live versions of the songs from the EP. With Stephan maintaining lead vocals and guitar and James adding guitar and vocals, Erica Belden was recruited on bass and vocals. They rounded out the quartet with ex-Hostage Calm and ex-At All Costs drummer, Brett Pieper.

“In Hardwood Groves” has been described by listeners as “Deep, dynamic, and melodic, [the record] combines lush and cascading guitar lines with passionate vocals and spacious drums to provide the perfect soundtrack for a long drive.”

June 2015 saw SEBIO’s debut show, playing the legendary TT the Bear’s Place in Cambridge before it closed its doors permanently a week later. A few months later, they played The Middle East Upstairs, putting on a sweaty, energetic, loud and electrifying show for a packed house. SEBIO has shared bills with the likes of Kitner, Annabel Lee, Deaf Rhino, Analog Heart, Titans of Industry, Band Without Hands, Lee Preston and more. Furthermore, SEBIO has also been featured on WEMF radio and local television show, Release the Sounds.

Thus far, the group has been committed to immersing themselves in the local music scene, promoting local venue growth, and partnering with like-minded individuals that encourage the diverse talents that Boston has to offer. SEBIO is now working towards a full-length album, as well as expanding their reach outside of the Boston area.

"Deaf Rhino are a loud and raucous live act. The band's recorded output -- beginning with 2015's Dirt, Rust, Chaos -- captures that energy and grit while exhibiting a polish that makes it sound like Deaf Rhino will soon be reaching beyond the basements and bars of the Tri-state Area. That also comes through on their latest track, "Can't Say It Ain't True." -

"From the get go you know this LP means serious business, each song is different and explores every depth of their musical ability. The LP is a smash success for their first full-length and a promising look into the their bright future." -

"Much in the same way Billy Joel and Elton John own Madison Square Garden or Bruce Springsteen's unquestioned Kingdom in the Meadowlands, it looks like NJ hard rockers Deaf Rhino are gunning for a similar mantle with the newly re-varnished Maxwell's." - Speak Into My Good Eye

"this Jersey quartet brings the groovy, the melodic, and the aggressive all into one, with just the perfect hint of lipstick-and-leather-jacket smolder to carve it out from a blaring wall of sound into a rock & roll experience. Even the surreal imagery of a deaf rhino sprinting at you in slow motion is a perfect match to the monstrous riffs and heart-racing drums." - Property of Zak

" Artist of the day: Deaf Rhino give new meaning to the term DIY. The balls-to-the-wall rock & roll band from New Jersey -

"Their unrelenting commitment to rock and roll has been captured through their own vigorous self-promotion and unforgettable live shows, and it's all culminating in the release of their debut LP, Dirt, Rust, Chaos, on May 5" - Diffuser.FM

"Deaf Rhino brought up the energy of the crowd with their set, full of hard-rocking songs and plenty of guitar solos. In fact, towards the end of their set, lead singer / guitarist Adam Schlett jumped off stage and joined the crowd for one last solo. It was a perfect end to their quite energetic performance." -

Featured on premiere indie rock shows, like "Out of the Box" on Q104.3 NYC and "Rodney with the Roq" on KROQ LA. Dirt, Rust, Chaos saw success on the FMQB specialty charts and boasted simultaneous top 10 chart placements in both the singles and albums category in late April 2015. The LP landed #6 in FMQBSubmodern Alternative Album category. Dust,​ Rust, Chaos ​also earned a #8 spot on FMQB Submodern Alternative for their single, "Hey You."
