Decibully: Penny, Look Down
Featuring numerous multi-instrumentalists and having earned a strong reputation for their live performances, Milwaukee’s DECIBULLY brandishes a wide variety of influences, mixing a rich blend of finely interspersed layers tinged with country-esque flourishes, subtle electronic twinges, and rock undertones.
Formed as a trio in Fall 2001 by William J. Seidel (vocals, guitar, percussion, Rhodes), W. Kenneth Siebert (guitar) and Nick Westfahl (keyboards), the group soon added Ryan Weber (lap steel, synths, guitar, percussion), Justin Klug (bass), and Jason Gnewikow (drums) to further round out their sound. Decibully spent the rest of 2001-02 practicing, touring and self-releasing their debut album You Might Be A Winner, You May Be A Loser, But You’ll Always Be A Gambler.
Sing Out America!, released on March 8, 2005, was Decibully’s third album, and the first to be written entirely by the band as a cohesive septet from start to finish. Although more stylistically varied than previous albums, the continuity of Sing Out America! reflects the consistency that can only be found by a band spending so much time on the road together. Sing Out America! is the most representative work the band has turned in to date, bringing their recorded output in step with their live show. [bio]
