Boston-based rock group Private Fortunes shot the latest edition of “Release the Sounds” in April. The band’s members include Jordan Weaver on guitar/vocals, Chris Erickson on bass and Dave Erickson on drums.
Wow. Feel that heat? Memorial Day, the unofficial beginning of summer, has come and gone but that’s not what I’m talking about. June’s featured artist, Never Got Caught scorched Studio A when they dropped into Release the Sounds. Brothers Bryan Hinkley and Bill Hinkley have roots in the notable Boston hardcore band Tree (all puns definitely intended) but eventually wanted to explore a darker sound. They added Dave Ward on guitar and Jesse Sherman (former Malden resident!) on bass to round out their current lineup and set off playing shows and writing more songs.

It’s a new month, which means Release the Sounds is featuring a new local band. For May, we have SEBIO in our studio.

The chemistry of the band is undeniable on stage and off. We find out more about them in a fun curbside interview in the May edition of Release the Sounds. Up next for SEBIO is some quality time writing and recording. […]
