There are moments that make or break a band, and ones that ultimately define them. These moments are a test of determination, drive, and strength. It should come as no surprise that this band embodies what the city of Philadelphia stands for: hard work and dedication. The sound of Overise is led by their unique, alternative rock music and profound, emotional vocals that when blended together, form a sound that is one of a kind. With a live show that is full of intense energy and passion, Overise shows you how special they really are.
Singer/Songwriter, and guitarist Joey De Noble, fuels the music of the band. Growing up in a musical family, along side of his father Tommy De Noble (American Bandstand), De Noble is a natural born talent. His vocals are a perfect combination of sweetness and power. In his senior year of highschool, De Noble started Overise with some of his good friends. As only an acoustic act in the beginning, they were able to make a strong impression on their local music scene. After high school De Noble decided to continue Overise and brought his music with him to college at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. Once settled in, De Noble was lucky enough to have found new members to form a full band.
Overise has shown how much devotion they have for their music with what they have accomplished in such a short amount of time. For only existing as a full band for 5 years, Overise has managed to play more then 500 shows and opened for some impressive bands such as: Better than Ezra, Something Corporate, The Starting Line, Pete Francis (Dispatch), Familiar 48 (Bonehead), Valencia, QuietDrive, Gatsby's American Dream, Peppers Ghost, Omnisoul, Days Away, Army of Freshmen, Socratic, This Day & Age, The Underwater, IKE, City Sleeps, and played such events with Panic At The Disco, The Roots and Lionel Richie just to name a few!.
Overise recorded a five-song debut demo EP entitled, A Long Story in early 2006, which they independently released on their own. A Long Story was engineered and recorded by Walt Mecleary of Ground Hog Studios (Holland, PA). The band was lucky enough to have caught the interest of 2-Time Grammy Award Winner, Michael Tarsia who served as chief engineer in the mixing and mastering process for the disc. Tarsia has worked with various award-winning platinum artists such as David Bowie, Vanessa Williams, Patty Labelle, and Dru Hill.
In the fall of 2009, Joey De Noble and Steve Rutt recorded a 2 song sampler of the tracks "Song For You" & "True". This new recording will be available soon to purchase on Itunes. In addition to their EP and their new recording, Overise has appeared on the 2004 Skate and Surf Compilation: Under the Boardwalk with "The Plain White T's" , and Danimal Record's Warped Tour Sampler CD with Drive Thru Record's own "Halifax" in the summer of 2006. Overise also is featured on the Drive Thru Records/PureVolume.com compilation, Bands You Love, Have Heard Of, And Should Know with the song "Outside". This compilation also features bands: Fall Out Boy, Jack's Mannequin, The Format, and lots more! This CD can be purchased at the band's shows and at Drive-Thru Records website.
