Founding members Brian Stewart (lead vocals/guitar) and Greg Guthrie (drums)
started the band somewhere around 2001- originally with Brians brother-in-law (CP
Pennington) as the lead singer. After many personnel and style changes, Brian took over
the vocals and main songwriting duties in 2004 subsequently adding Tobey Ashcroft on
guitar and Chris Epperson on bass. Sometime after the release of their 1st EP, Amplifier
Habit, Tobey departed and Jeff Valenta joined the band on lead guitar. Then after their
2nd release (Charged) tour was over, the band went on an 8 year hiatus. Fast-forward to
2015 and PosterWall is back but with Brian on bass! Then in early 2016, Marcus Couto
joined to make PosterWall a two guitar band once again. Stay tuned.
PosterWall is independent and likes it that way. Charged was recorded
right at home in Brians studio, 510 Audio, and released on their own label SuperWow
Records. Influences include Matthew Sweet, Foo Fighters, and classic rock from Led
Zeppelin to Rick Springfield. (Really!) PosterWalls sound is a back to basics
approach with simple hook filled melodies and riffs. They may not be the most technically
flashy band around, but they deliver where it counts: The Song.
