A local band is in need of a lead guitarist who has interest in the pop/punk/ska genre.
Just 4 The Record is a band based out of Provo that started about two years ago when four guys got together to make some music. Blake Nuttall the lead singer and bass guitarist said that he is passionate about his band and the music they are putting out there.
The band has recently finished touring which included performing in several venues in Utah and Arizona. Nuttal classified the band’s sound as pop/punk but he didn’t want to limit it to one specific genre. Alternative rock, metal, and emo are also categories the band falls into.
While developing their own sound, Just4 The Record covers bands like Green Day, Blink 182, Bowling for Soup, and Backstreet Boys. He said that covers are a great way to get gigs, but producing a sound that fans can relate to is what every band wants. He said the overall goal is to develop a unique sound as the group becomes more solid.
In addition to the band, Nuttal along with current band members are working on developing a music school. The music school, they hope, will include lessons in voice, piano, drums, guitar, and other instruments, as well as a recording studio. Nuttal said that the recording studio and music school will be in the same building, with the goal of having it complete by this coming December.
Just 4 The Record will be playing at South County Lanes in Payson on Friday, October 14 at 8 PM, $8 at the door.
