The Powerchords

Punk / Pop / Powerpop

■■■Artist Bio/Description■■■

The Powerchords were born out of Chula Vista,
a small suburban city within San Diego County, California.
The songwriter, Jon Hammer, was tired of seeing
the same radio-formatted pop-punk and hardcore
bands attempt the music scene with boring,
monotonous, redundant riffs and gimmicks.
He wondered what had happened to good 'punk.'

So, he started a band, having never sung before,
with Austin Ballow, who had never drummed before.
Being punks themselves, they were musically influenced
by the punk rock beat.
They worked hard to develop a seeminglynew sound
in San Diego.

The band is influenced by British bands like
the Buzzcocks, the Clash, and the Boys,
as well as American groups like the Ramones or the Dickies.
However, the band is dynamic, and bases their
songwriting on classic 1960's pop, similar to
the styles of the Beatles or the Rolling Stones,
just 'up a few notches.'
The band creates music with continuity, catchiness,
and most of all, conciseness.

Current members also include Eliseo Parra, a classically
trained guitarist, and Craig Barclift, a diligent bassist.
Both sing back up harmonies, creating a traditional pop
voicing while striving for originality in terms of
harmonic preference and chord progression.
Powerchords are the simplest of guitar chords,
and the band name represents their appreciation for
minimalist pop music, and the powerful energy exerted
by the use of power chords in the punk revolution
of the late 1970's.

The Powerchords are four early-twenty-year-olds playing
high-energy punk rock.
