Transitshop
Transitshop is a fast rising alternative/indie-rock band whose debut EP was released in 2011 to critical acclaim and charted highly on the CMJ college radio charts. Based out of Philadelphia and New York City, the band’s live shows have become a spectacle in the northeast US while receiving radio play on over 50 FM stations nationwide! Their anxiously awaited full-length album was recorded in Detroit and will be released in 2012.
This energetic trio is the latest project from multi-instrumentalist and producer Chris O’Brien. Chris was born in Maryland and raised in the Boston area where he first became interested in music at the early age of twelve when he began playing the guitar. He moved to the Baltimore area in his teens and finally landed in Philadelphia where he attended college, and now calls home.
Prior to forming Transitshop Chris served as a guitar player in other original bands and also honed his skills playing in night club cover bands. He first gained some music production experience by working with others on short music projects for film, TV and advertising.
While drawing influence from a very diverse range of artists, Transitshop has created an attention grabbing sound that is uniquely its own. Flavorful vocal melodies flow across shimmering clean and liquid sounding guitar tones, with driving drums and fast running bass. Transitshop has gained quite a bit of national attention by giving away their music for FREE and offering free Mp3 downloads on the band’s social media sites. Word of mouth along with a lot of positive press, and tour support for national acts have helped Transitshop to earn an intense following.
