New York, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2006
American Music Award winning funk-rock act Bomb Squad have announced their new front person as Brenna Gethers. The 25 year-old enjoyed national success as a finalist on this past season's American Idol.
"My stint on American Idol allowed me to do what I love to do—sing for millions of people," says Gethers. "I'm looking forward to bringing great music to the masses with Bomb Squad."
Gethers recently returned from a tour in Texas, where she opened for American Idol's Ruben Studdard. The Bomb Squad will write and rehearse during the fall and are planning a tour introducing the new lineup prior to the holidays.
About Bomb Squad:
Bomb Squad was embraced by a large group of dedicated supporters in 2002 after a series of live shows and the release of their debut independent CD, Sophistafunk, which sold a stunning 1,000 copies in its first 2 weeks.
The band enjoyed their first taste of commercial success when hand selected by music industry icon Dick Clark to perform at the 31st Annual American Music Awards. Bomb Squad performed alongside pop stars such as Britney Spears, Outkast and Metallica. "It is bands like this that bring life to new music and the music industry," said Dick Clark. " Winning this award is hopefully just the first step in a long and successful career in music for the Bomb Squad."
Shortly after their world premiere on the American Music Awards, the Squad released their second studio album, Bomb Squad II, produced by legendary pop producer Jimmy Bralower.
The band's latest release, a DVD entitled, Rip it Up, highlights 90 minutes of live Bomb Squad filmed at Boston's Paradise Rock Club. Bonus features include a short movie about the band documenting its rise from sold out bar shows to the American Music Awards to headlining the 2005 Montreal Jazz Festival.
