Small Town Titans is a heavy rock n' roll band that finds its roots in a place born of the blood, sweat, and tears of Blue Collar Pennsylvania. The name was created by lead vocalist Phillip Nathaniel Freeman at the age of 15 when he discovered the beauty, danger, and fun of Rock & Roll. All members of the band, Phil Freeman - vocals, Jonny Ross- drums, Ben Guiles - guitar, and Eddie Roberts - bass, are a product of the same mentality: small town beginnings with big city dreams. With the band name sitting in Phil's pocket for 8 years, it now represents a unified group of brothers who see the sky as the limit.
Their first show took place on May 30th, 2011 and since then, the band has accomplished more than any one member could have imagined. Despite hefty college schedules, work hours, and miles of driving, STT has continued to push forward with relentless persistence. In the course of 1 year and 6 months, the band has opened for national touring artists including Secondhand Serenade, Taproot, Nonpoint, Otherwise, Pop Evil, Charm City Devils, Foxy Shazam, Saving Abel, and many more! STT has released a five song self-titled record, gaining overwhelming regional response a dedicated and growing fanbase. It has gained partnership with 105.7 The X and a sponsorship with the national energy drink Vegas Fuel. It has performed over 80+ shows, worked with Susquehanna Entertainment, and has participated in charitable events that benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy and Children's Miracle Network!
The band plans to return to the studio with Jason Rubal of Seventh Wave Studio to finish the band's first full length album. “The name may have “small” in it, but their sound is the exact opposite. We had a blast making [The 5 Track] and I am thrilled to see what these kids have in store for the industry. They are more than ready!” says Rubal. The band's full length album is due to be released in summer of 2013.
If this strong group continues with the drive, passion, and success they have achieved in the time they have been together,their potential is unlimited: a very fitting description for a band with the word “titan” proudly displayed in its name.
