Biography Of 16 Second Stare

The heavy hitting riffs of 16 Second Stare are unpredictable and daring in their full-length debut album, Red Carpet Material. This album grabs a hold of you and leads you through a twisted maze of modern rock sprinkled with good old fashion rock and roll. The strong team of "Angry" Tim Shanks and Todd Pettus, with producer and bassist Miguel Gonzales, deliver pure rock and roll substance. Red Carpet Material melodically covers a vast range of the bands experiences, including the fierce ups and downs during the past few years while the guys have been together performing and recording. But as intense as their music is, the guys from 16 Second Stare are anything but self-serious studio geeks.

Angry Tim grew up in Detroit MI. musically influenced by Keith Richards, Malcom Young, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix. As a singer and guitar player, his love of writing music and partying with the crowd go hand and hand. Todd Pettus, lead guitar and vocals, hails from Muscle Shoals AL. "Growing up learning Zeppelin, AC/DC and Metallica,” Todd explains, “my style’s a little different than Tim’s; he’s a little more old-school." "We’ve got a lot of cross-breeding going on over here,” Tim drawls with a chuckle, correctly citing the introspective “Stuck in the Moment” as a song that appeals to both the new and old rock schools. Add powerhouse producer Miguel Gonzales on bass and you have the basis of 16 Second Stare. A seasoned professional, Gonzales, brought years of experience from working with big names in the industry, such as Brian Howe of Bad Company and Matt Kramer of the band Saigon Kick. Add the ever-charming Chris Davis of Lakeland FL. on drums, and this band is ready for their up and coming tour. The addition of Trinton Falls, NJ. vixen Amber Nicol on bass in the fall of 2008 allowed Miguel Gonzales to get back into the production booth as this band continues to record new songs.

With Red Carpet Material receiving nationwide attention, this band embarks on their biggest tour ever. Look for 16 Second Stare to RAWK a town near you during their 2009 multi-city national tour.
