Emerging pop/rock act A Million Pieces officially rolls out their self-titled Scallywag Records EP today, featuring the single “Laserbeams”.
Jerrod “Skins” Bettis (the original drummer for OneRepublic) who produced the record commented,
“After producing pop record after rock record after hip hop record, it was a natural progression to be involved with a young, up-and-coming rock band. These guys are awesome and talented…It became a personal project for me and it was really awesome to be a part of it.”
A Million Pieces share a genuine bond of brotherhood and write fearlessly autobiographical songs, like lead single “Laserbeams.” Guitarist/vocalist Peter Vanderloos elaborated on the band’s sound: “I’m a big fan of pop music, and we’re from different pop genre backgrounds, always looking to blend new and unique influences. As a band, we’re open to the bigger audience and our goal is to crossover without selling out.”
Along with Vanderloos, A Million Pieces is Morgan Freed (lead vocals), Ryan Brown (bass) and Stephen Soss (keyboards and assorted instruments). Their Scallywag debut EP, which features six solid, catchy and extremely well-crafted tracks, is their first outing as a band, but they’re all highly accomplished and serious musicians. Soss, who is viewed as the band’s consummate musician plays drums, trumpet, banjo and accordian (in addition to keyboards).
