Philadelphia’s PLAY magazine describes Not Alone: "It’s been said that Not Alone is best when it’s live... Not Alone has got everything, guitar to rhythm with an excellent stage presence and catchy lyrics that pull you right in... They are the evolution of classic guitar for the modern era. Their harmony, pure 'instrumental athleticism' and song writing talent bond to generate a distinct musical force.”
Brothers Tyler Schock (vocals) and Eric Schock (lead guitar/vocals) comprise the foundation upon which this band ROCKS. And ROCK they do, with a distinctive guitar-driven modern sound that is decisively anchored on the rock of the greatest classic gods to ever swing an axe and peppered by the inspiration of the most notable contemporary influences.
Innate harmonies, instrumental dexterity and formidable song writing talents bond wholly and enthusiastically to generate a force that is truly distinctive to Not Alone. The kinetic energy and tenacious work ethic that they impart fuel poignant and hooky guitar-driven songs which display a wide range of dynamics, emotions, proficiency and attention to melodious detail.
In January of 2004, Not Alone entered a recording & production deal with renowned Grammy nominated producer/engineer David Ivory who is known for his work with Silvertide (J-Records), Halestorm (Atlantic), The Roots, Kindred, Erykah Badu, Patti Labelle, etc. Under Ivory’s tutelage, Not Alone has focused on writing, producing and recording killer rock tracks with great hooks, crunching guitars and screaming leads that have fans addicted from the first listen.
This hard working band routinely tours from Ocean City, MD to upstate New York and has shared the stage with national acts Silvertide, Saves the Day, Quiet Drive and The X’s (featuring former Fuel front man, Brett Scallions). In early 2006, Not Alone advanced to the Semifinals of the national Zippo Hot Tour contest (top 80 unsigned rock bands in nation) was chosen as featured artist of the week on PulseRated.com (U.K.); and was selected as one of the top five bands in the Lehigh Valley by 95.1 WZZO and chosen to showcase in the station's Backyard Bands competition at the Allentown Fair.
Additionally in 2006, Not Alone had tracks featured on four compilation CDs including Jaxon’s Local Shots Vol. II produced by 93.3 WMMR in Philadelphia and sold at all Tower Records locations. Not Alone was also chosen to headline on The X 105.7/Jack Daniels main stage at the 10th annual Millennium Music Conference and showcased at the 2006 Dewey Beach Music Conference.
