Max Decker (guitar, vocals and songwriter), along with Francis Cardinale (drums), Nick Shopa, (keyboard) and Justin Michael Miller (bass), inspire dense yet bright, and robust melodic mixes, as evidenced in their self-produced debut album, Porcelain.
Decker, a schooled painter and artist whose work can be seen on the cover of the Porcelain EP, rekindled his musical passions after attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He continued to paint vivid images and heartfelt emotions, but this time through the compilation and personification of modest words joined with strong beats and energetic melodies that hit a chord and trigger a can't-help-but-dance response.
Shortly after Decker began to revisit his musical side, he was quickly joined by high school friend Cardinale in 2009, who also brought Shopa, a classically trained guitarist with a skill for repairing and tuning pianos, with him to command the keyboard. Bassist Justin Miller, a Berklee College of Music alum, music producer and recording engineer, then completed the quartet in 2010.
Project took a turn for the better when we moved down the street and inherited the Chris Denune Memorial Studio.
Noises became songs, jams became rehearsals, band meetings became mandatory (thnx Murray..)
And finally on October 21, 2012, Camp Ground becomes self-aware.
