Young Statues

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA (USA)


In the winter of 2010, a spontaneous trip to Athens, GA became the birth of New Jersey/Philadelphia indie–rock outfit Young Statues. The record first began to take shape at Chase Park Transduction Studios, where a series of songs were recorded between friends, songs that were initially never intended to be released. Intrigued by the results of these sessions, songwriter and vocalist Carmen Cirignano decided to continue working on them with longtime producer and engineer Steve Poponi at the Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, NJ. It was here, with the help of bassist Tom Ryan and drummer Daniel Bogan, that these songs were transformed into the impressive debut record for a band comprised of longtime friends in the Philadelphia area music scene.

Full of swelling guitars, intricate vocal melodies and introspective lyrics, â??Young Statuesâ? is evidence of a group of musicians who have honed their skills and made a record to be revered for its beauty, tact, and honesty.
