Get ready to enjoy music by the southern rock band Five Ton Faces. Five Ton Faces released their first self-titled EP Five Ton Faces.in March 2018 out of Franklin, Tennessee. The band mixes in a diverse array of energy and approaches. Some songs have a hint of rockabilly, others mix in country and that's just the beginning.
Five Ton Faces was created in the summer of 2016 by George Hamilton VI (vocals) and Jonah Raymond (guitar) as a folk duo. Adam Story (keyboard) joined a few months later and that's when things truly begin to form.
Everything seemed to come together perfectly in the summer of 2016. With their future members in the crowd the current members were unaware they would be a full band by the end of the night. Alex Brassfield (bass) and Bailey McClendon (drums) asked to join after the show.
Hamilton has had his hand in writing most of the songs with each member bringing their own unique sound to the table. Five Ton Faces was recorded at The ‘Cuda with help of Johnny Hopson (producer). Five Ton Faces was mastered at BBD by Donnie Bott (mastering tech). Throwing in his artistic abilities Michael Webb (mixing engineer) brought it all together.
Recently having mild success in the Nashville scene across town. Also, playing at a charity event “Tiny Fest” which raised over $300 for Puerto Rico relief. Five Ton Faces is a 14-track album which is a mix of all types of genres. Heartache was apparent and some songs like “Don’t Feel Anything” and “Drinking of You” hit right to the heart and easily communicating the tatters of a lost love.
The album starts with the somewhat hilarious "Taking Me Home Tonight". The song is about booze and is sung in a half drunken way which works wonderfully with the song. "Flew The Coop" is fun, energetic song about being broke while "Stoned and Alone" is borderline perfect for sing-alongs.
"Adventurous Escapades" is worthy of hoe down with your sweetheart. The fast tempo and melodies are great. They are just getting started and continue impress. The flow of the album is seamless and was mix of more sing-alongs, songs to dance to and also celebrate to.
Five Ton Faces is a band with a unique essence and heart-felt vocals that are taking the Nashville scene head on. Both these aspects are easily recognizable and leaves the band in a very advantageous situation.
