Getaway Car


Multiple Groups with this name: At first listen Getaway Car’s All Your Little Pieces is radio-ready rock that sticks in the middle of your brain for days. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find the ire of Elvis Costello and the sugar-sweet retro melody of Cheap Trick, Squeeze, and the Fab Four worn proudly on their collective sleeve. The future hit 'thanks-for-screwing-up my-holiday' anthem, All Time Low, began turning heads at radio and record labels in 2004 and anchored itself as the springboard for this classic and complete rock record.

Multiple Groups with this name: At first listen Getaway Car’s All Your Little Pieces is radio-ready rock that sticks in the middle of your brain for days. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find the ire of Elvis Costello and the sugar-sweet retro melody of Cheap Trick, Squeeze, and the Fab Four worn proudly on their collective sleeve. The future hit 'thanks-for-screwing-up my-holiday' anthem, All Time Low, began turning heads at radio and record labels in 2004 and anchored itself as the springboard for this classic and complete rock record. Other standouts include the Pretenders-esque Kingdom Crumbled the tender-yet-twisted Long Night, the fist-pumping 'sing-a-long' Insomnia and the tortured waltz How Will I Sleep.

Co-produced and mixed by Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Lifehouse) All Your Little Pieces is a dynamic album fueled by heartbreak, possession, obsession, and an overall lack of sleep…it's the perfect post-breakup companion. Also recorded in 2004, Getaway Car’s one hundred eighty degree NYC EP conjures up images of the Strokes, Jet, and Death Cab for Cutie. This lo-fi stripped down version of Getaway Car was produced by mad scientist Jamie Lamm- written and recorded over just two days in his New York City recording facility. Superstar (from the NYC EP) was used nationally in a Pontiac Vibe commercial in early 2004 and Daylight (also from the EP) won the band the opening slot at WHFS’ prestigious HFStival at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC.

The band also loves its side work. Members of Getaway Car have been hired as touring musicians with such major label acts as Pat McGee Band, Lucy Woodward, the New York Dolls, and Tonic. But the real goal for Getaway Car's All Your Little Pieces and the NYC EP is to belong in any true pop-rock fan’s iPod. Singer Todd Wright, bassist Chris Reardon, and guitarist Matt Miceli have crafted an EP and an LP that seem destined to carve (at the very least) their own ‘little piece’ in rock history. Todd Wright-vocals, guitar Chris Reardon- bass, vocals Matt Miceli- guitar, vocals ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This Boise, ID based band knows, there is more to a live show than performing your songs in front of a crowd, it’s about being able to engage them into an experience.

The Getaway Car is an indie-rock/pop band that is able to provide a sound worth an experience just as so, making their recordings an introduction to their music. Using a megaphone, crowd participation or unexpectedly breaking down in the middle of a song with a multi-member drum solo are just some of the ways they capture the attention of new fans at a show. The songs are written with just as much thought and energy as their live set. Based from either their own personal experiences or witnessed by others, their songs are meant to share a story. The Getaway Car is more than just another 5-member band – it’s an experience.After their 4th show together, TGC took 2nd place at the Knitting Factory Boise’s 2011 Battle of the bands. The release of the first recording project is just around the corner.

Beginning in July, be looking out for The Getaway Car’s first single, “Echo”, with a cover art contest for fans! This new project will ultimately consist of 3, 3-song EPs, "Ready", "Set", and "Go".
