noize from the basement
Kent-based teen rockers Noize from the Basement have been nominated for eight awards from this year’s Indie Music Channel ceremony, which will be held April 29 at House of Blues in Hollywood, Calif. The nominations include awards in both teen and adult categories, like Best Alternative Band, Best Alternative Song, and Best Teen Band, among others. The coed quartet, hailing from Kent, Tallmadge and Silver Lakes, includes Emily Gambone on vocals and guitar, Jazz Hannah on lead guitar, Holly Camp on bass and Logan McNeal on drums. Playing together since 2008, the precocious group worked with producer Mike Brown in Cleveland’s Lava Room recording studio to produce last year’s full-length album “Bird’s Eye View.” (The album is nominated for alternative album of the year as well as best teen album.)
Boasting a knack for catchy pop, Noize from the Basement submitted songs to the Indie Music Channel last year, when their single “Gotta Get Away” hit number one on the channel’s weekly countdown show. This year, their song “How” has been nominated for best teen song as well as best alternative song, and has hit number two on the countdown.
The group’s music videos are also garnering attention. This year, the video for the song “Hold on Tight,” shot and produced by Mike Pella of FuzzyLogic Productions in Cleveland, was nominated for video of the year in both adult and teen categories. The band will be traveling to LA to attend the awards ceremony as well as performing a three-song set at the after party.
