ROCK: Modern Rock, ROCK: Classic Rock
Finding Stella has entered the San Francisco music scene at a time when female-fronted rockers are hard to find. Their music integrates the classic rock and pop spirit of the 70''s and 80''s with a newer, warmer rock quality that has been drawing new audiences from along the West coast and beyond.
Singer/songwriter Chris Snyder along with drummer Tim Christmon and recent arrivals Rik Avalos, Joe Cieplinski and Shoshannah Beck attribute many different influences and styles to their music - smoothly jumping from classic rock to a little R & B to pop and funk - to create a rich rock sound.
"I was heavily influenced by the music of the 80''s. That''s what I grew up on...the Stones, Heart, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Blondie...they all rocked!", Snyder notes.
The emergence of vocalist Snyder quickly fills the senses of the discerning music lover. The band''s first album "Twitch" sold out quickly during 2004 and represents an expression of the bands'' musical potency, command of their craft and serves up a huge plate of passionate rock.
Finding Stella was voted the "Best San Francisco Rock Band" in the SOBE''/Hard Rock Cafe'' Ultimate Altitude Buzz Battle of the Bands, December 6, 2003.
The band has been on hiatus since June 2004, and has spent the downtime developing new songs and changing up the line-up. The original band''s last performance in 2004 drew over 3,000 fans to the Pleasanton Concert in the Park series exclusively featuring Finding Stella.
In September 2003, Finding Stella was chosen to debut four of their original compositions for the new Treo 600 SmartPhone from Handspring. MP3s of "Street Fair", "The Day & Night", "Listen" and "Would You Know" are available for download.
Earlier in 2003, Finding Stella was selected to support Monte Cristo Films in their presentation of "Beaver Run Cafe''". This independent feature was produced by Rose Hawayek and features the music of Finding Stella. The band was also featured on The Music Channel''s "Locals Only TV", and filmed live in San Francisco in December 2002.
