LOS ANGELES, Calif., July 1, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- When the John Dellroy Band cranks it up on stage, audiences are treated to a melodic onslaught. "We rock, but with folk and electronic influences, and the melodies are designed to let you hum along immediately and even sing with us after you hear the hook just a couple of times," states lead vocalist John Dellroy.

Calling their sound "alternative folk-rock without limits," the John Dellroy Band is unafraid to go from hard-charging rock to a reflective ballad while zooming through a set-list that contains numbers featuring a full range of modern pop styles.

"It is so exciting to be able to play in this band," Dellroy states, "especially the way the guys can blend hard rock with electronica, intricate vocal harmonies, and even a touch of country now and then." Their sound has been described as a combination of "intimate and gritty." On their recent European tour, the band performed rock and acoustic sets, depending on the venue.

Their first full-length CD, "A New Life Has Begun," was released in 2013 on Poolman Records. The 11-track album was produced by Thomas Mora and has seen a radio edit of "Time" achieve very strong download action, including reaching #1 at Musicload and #55 on the iTunes Pop chart.

Theirs is a total commitment to music. As Dellroy states, "Life without music is an empty, soulless place." In addition to touring in support of the album and single releases, the band is working with producer Peter Roberts to launch new singles into the North American market.


Formed five years ago in Europe, the Austrian/American/Australian group consists of John Dellroy on vocals, acoustic guitar, and harp; Franz Konigshofer on electric guitar and backing vocals; Daniel Salecich on violin, keyboards, and backing vocals; Peter Volker on bass; and Mike 'Drummer' Pawlowitsch on percussion.


Peter Roberts is a multiple award winning songwriter and producer who has received Grammy® nominations for "Song of the Year," "Album Of The Year," "Record Of The Year," "Best Song written for a Motion Picture Soundtrack," and "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance."
