Since forming in Atlanta fifteen years ago, instrumental electronic rock band STS9 has experienced a meteoric rise to the forefront of the international music scene. From headlining stages at the country’s biggest festivals, to selling out shows around the country as an acoustic set-up in opera houses or as an electronic act in amphitheaters, this band does it all.
STS9 is comprised of Hunter Brown (guitar/sequences), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Phipps (keyboards/synths) and Zach Velmer (drums) and Alana Rocklin (bass). STS9’s goal is clear: bring the music to the people in the most conscious, unique innovative and savvy ways possible. By doing so, the distance lessens between artists and fans, putting the power back in the hands of those that make music and those that live for it.
STS9 relocated to Northern California in late 2000. In addition to spending much of their time on the road, they also formed their own label, 1320 Records, releasing Artifact in 2005. The album -- which was subsequently reimagined on extras like Remixes, Vol. 1 and Perspectives -- peaked on Billboard's electronic chart at #12. They followed with the albums Peaceblaster (2008), Ad Explorata (2009), and Axe the Cables (2010), along with an EP, When the Dust Settles (2011), on the imprint. Before their next release, Murphy left the band in early 2014 and was replaced by Alana Rocklin.
In 2016, STS9 released the funky The Universe Inside, inspired by Carl Sagan's "Golden Records," which were sent into space in the hopes of communicating with alien life. Universe's opening track "Supercluster" included samples from the original NASA STS-9 transmission, a fitting full-circle journey for the band. The LP debuted in the Top 5 of both the Billboard Dance/Electronic and Heatseekers charts, as well as the Top 40 on the Independent chart.
