Just as day changes to night, so do the moods that follow the tint of the sky. Champagne Blvd explores each dimension of sound and atmosphere on their newly released album, "The Catharsis," a diverse collection of songs designed to mirror a timeline of a life's events. As soon as you find yourself caught by the punchy, bright rock of "No One Else But Me, pt. II" you will find yourself drifting into a much darker realm of sound on the track, "Autumn." With a concept based on that of an emotionally chaotic rollercoaster, there are no boundaries, as showcased in "The Catharsis." Champagne Blvd was created in late 2004 by lead singer/guitarist, Jay O'Brien. After countless bands and side projects, Jay decided to launch an acoustic experiment that would enable him to share his thoughts and ideas with potential listeners in a positive way. In 2007, Champagne Blvd acquired David Keller and Matthew Fabre, the final pieces of the puzzle. Now, with a core of three independent songwriters, Champagne Blvd has allowed themselves to walk in a direction that very few have gone. With no member confined to one instrument, David, Jay and Matthew are able to implement their own unique trademark on a variety of levels, as each member writes and performs rhythm, lead and vocal melodies.
