About the Artist
Even before the band named itself “Aperture” it’s three founding members, John Thevenot (bass), Jared Mears (guitar), and Justin Frary (drums) worked tirelessly in the practice room for over 2 years writing the musical framework of what would become one of Texas most interesting yet unclassifiable unsigned hard rock acts. For Aperture, perseverance is the key, and it has paid off. ... Late in 2010 they added friend and guitarist Michael Proctor to the group, and almost immediately after found their frontman in San Antonio native Nathan Alvarado, thanks to a late-night Craigslist posting.
As Aperture’s debut EP “Now That You’re Awake” dropped in April 2011, they were already playing with big acts like Apocalyptica at the acclaimed White Rabbit in San Antonio, as well as earning radio play and press coverage in both of their hometowns...San Antonio and Austin.
