Fontana’s debut album consists of six original songs written, composed, and performed by the band. The album, “Old Wounds”, was recorded in Knoxville TN with engineer Mike Nelson, previously of Dark Horse Studios in Nashville TN. 


Feeling a bit camera shy


Founded in the spring of 2018, Fontana is an original music working band. After some early success and a finale appearance in the 107.7 WIVK/Cotton Eyed Joe Battle of the Bands, some of the band mates from a now defunct project, The Steal Hearts, decided to form a new group that would focus on writing and performing music for regular people. This new band consisted of Patrick Estep handling the guitar and vocal work, Jeramiah “The Doc” Peck keeping the band together on drums, and Alex Dalgleish giving the music fullness and life on bass. 

The name Fontana comes from the street where the group first met and rehearsed in a previous project. Fontana not only sounds memorable, but has genuine meaning to the band as it signifies the moment they all first met. The name Fontana was an immediate hit within the band and with their friend and family supporters. 

After only a few few weeks of developing a brand identity with social media presence, a logo, and direction for the band, the guys starting writing. Over the course of only weeks the band had created a unique musical statement with a style all their own. Pulling influence from 90’s alternative rock, classic rock, and modern country, Fontana was ready to book a studio to cut their debut album. The album was designed to be listened to from start to finish to take the fan on a musical journey that tells a story of new love, the ups and downs of relationships, and the unfortunate possibility of heartbreak. The writing and creating process brought back past memories for the band, thus they appropriately named the album “Old Wounds”. 

With an early October release date kicked off by a large album release party, Fontana is set to start touring in winter 2018.
