Initially formed by guitarist Jeremey Poparad as a way to jam out with a handful of friends who were moving out of state, Axon-Neuron became something else entirely. Within a matter of a few months, the band banged out a full-length and even booked a few gigs in the Akron area. The result was Bring Songs, the band’s first full-length album in which they recorded in May of this year. The members of Axon-Neuron call themselves a rock band with jazz and classical influences but this writer sees things a tad bit differently. At first listen, the jazz and classical inspirations stick out like a sore thumb. Even the female vocalist seems straight out of something more unique entirely. Refreshing for the local music scene around these parts as most bands shoot for the whole ‘rock’n’roll’ sound and get off easy. Axon-Neuron should have no problem booking gigs at more jazz clubs while at the same time hitting up the typical rock venues as well. If the band keeps up what they are doing and continue to let their sound mature and grow, Axon-Neuron could potentially have something special here. Thankfully for listener’s sake, the band has continued on with new members and is not planning on departing anytime soon. “Brain Songs” is available on CDBaby (www.cdbaby.com/cd/axonneuron), iTunes and other digital online outlets. Fans can also pick up the record at any live show.
