Purple Melon @ Viper




British band Purple Melon is comprised of:

Tom Hill (age 22) on vocals and guitar,
Eric Joyce (21) on bass,
Owen Barry (25) on guitar and
Jason Ganberg (23) on drums.

Early in 2006, shortly after the band's formation, Hill and Joyce met a trio of young filmmakers and together they came up with the idea of filming the group's journey (teaser snippets of the footage can be viewed on YouTube, MySpace, Vuze and their web site).

In September 2006 they played their first gig, at the Barfly in Birmingham, and were immediately asked to play again--eventually becoming the first act to gain a four-month residency at the club. Afterward the group relocated to London, where Hill promptly found and fell in love with the Troubadour Club and its bohemian, laid-back and classily cool atmosphere. While in London the group attracted the attention of many leading producers, ultimately deciding to work with Paul Stacey (Oasis, Black Crowes).

The band relocated to Los Angeles to put the finishing touches on their debut album and win over North American fans through extensive gigging. Which is exactly what they have done, packing venues such as The Viper Room, and The Key Club on the historic Sunset Strip just to name a couple. The band has also started to garner strong support on US tastemaker radio stations such as KTCL, WXPN, KNRK, and many others prior to the release of their much anticipated debut album.
