Armed with a clash of influences ranging throughout the decades - The Beatles to Queen, Journey to Nirvana, Radiohead to The Black Keys - they specialize in a sound that's familiar, but fresh. Thus, an evolution. Not only is the music a modern melting pot, the members are as well. Lead vocalist, writer and rhythm guitarist Clemente Bornacelli hails from south Florida along with his best friend and lead guitarist of 10 years, Jason Rosell.
After moving to L.A., they added bassist and back-up vocalist Zach Self from Honolulu, keyboardist Taylor O'Connor from Santa Fe, and L.A. native drummer, Jake DeSouza. Although the name Petty Crux is an oxymoron, there's nothing contradictory about the response they receive. If their fans' screams of "more!" drifting over the last loud ringing chord in their live set is any indication, Petty Crux is as Clemente likes to say, "the best fuckin' band you've never heard."
