Great New Music From A Local Band "On Point" Will Have You Lovin' Their Sound.
It began with Last Call, originally an acoustic duo founded by Adam Esson (Guitar/Vocals), who played the local bars. Shortly after, impressed by a live performance, Scott Mandato (Drums) and Matt Davis (Vocals) joined and their sound was born. They often win audiences with their unique blend of hip-hop, reggae and acoustic rock.
In 2013, after joining forces with Eian McCoy (Guitar) and Doug Becht (Bass), they hit the studio and reinvented their music to create their debut EP, DEMO. On Point’s debut sound is derived from influences like The Dirty Heads, Nas, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus and Third Eye Blind, combined with inspiring lyrics about life, love and humanity. During recording, the band met Grammy-nominated producer/musician Sean Beavan, who had this to say after hearing the tracks
"On Point has that seemingly impossible combination of great melodies, magnetic vocals and tight, cohesive, musicianship that enhances their catchy songs. On Point is a new millennial hybrid with punchy tracks and solid songwriting skills. The singer and rapper strike that perfect balance of hip hop swagger and soaring emotional melody."
The main single, “Castles,” is a feel-good reggae/rap tune that peeks into the struggle of a one-sided relationship and the persistence of love. When released for streaming online in January, the track quickly gained hundreds of plays and new fans for the band, pushing them to #1 on ReverbNation’s Cleveland Alternative chart. Other tracks include “My Baby,” an acoustic solo by singer/guitarist Adam Esson with backing synth strings by Steve Basil from Machine Gun Kelly, and “Problems,” a fan-favorite about the day-to-day grind that is far from radio friendly.
This band is damn good, their music is solid and has a great vibe, you can't help but singing along with the tunes, they keep the music fresh and offer some very cool rythems. If you have a chance to see this band proform, take it from me, go see them, you will have a great time. Grab thier new ep and have a great time listening to the many styles they create, the twist is blending some hip hop rap into a few of their tunes all the while touching your soul with some amazing tender songs.
