Judyth Piazza Gets AWESTRUCK

Judyth Piazza Gets AWESTRUCK

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)


The shaping of a band is rarely ever an easy task, and the formation of Awestruck was no exception. Mike El-Ayazra (drums) had been trying to find the right mix of people for years before first running across Charles Honeycutt (vocals). The two of them played together in another band prior to the formation of Awestruck, and when the bass player quit, the search was on to fill that hole.

After a lot of tryouts and disappointments, they finally found Brandon Jennings (bass). Things seemed to be ready to move forward at this point, but before long, the guitarist decided he was unable to fully commit. This was understandable, and the band began looking for that final piece of the puzzle.

Countless hours of auditioning guitarists lead to the discovery of the missing piece, Ray Keller (Guitar). Having played together for less than an hour, the band knew this was the sound and vibe they wanted. Following a circuit blowing performance at their first venue and laying down two tracks at Squirrel Sound Studios with Robert Bowers, Awestruck is now relentlessly heading towards the ears of the masses, bringing groove and power back to a scene lacking both.
