About the ArtistIn a world overcrowded by identical and unoriginal pop bands, Boston's female-fronted rock outfit The Modern Elite are truly a breath of fresh air. Talented young songwriters Rebecca Frank (vocals) and Trevor Peckham (guitar & vocals) draw from completely contrasting influences, flawlessly creating their own unique sound. The bass lines of Tommy Turbo and jazz-infused drumming of Clark Davenport add flavor and power to every song, while lead guitarist Justin Tufariello shows off his chops with intricate solos. In the spring of 2009, the band unveiled a three-song digital EP, which received critical acclaim across local and national scenes.This November, The Modern Elite will release their full-length album, Blind, which includes enhanced versions of the EP songs, as well as live favorites "Obsession," "Hold On" and "Nowhere to Go." Get ready, because The Modern Elite are taking the best parts of all of your favorite bands to make female-fronted rock like you’ve never heard before.
