Open Window was formed in Los Angeles in 2004 by Daniel Bautista and Jimmy Rutherford. Daniel is an AMC recording artist, and producer for Aza Cruz, Dina Torok and Open Window. The band is: Daniel Bautista on vocals & guitar, Jimmy Rutherford on lead guitars, Wayne Rothstein on bass & vocals, and John Aponte on drums. Wayne has a Bachelor of Arts in Music from San Diego State, and has recorded for CBS, and Firehouse Studios. John has played with the L.A. Lakers band, and Aza Cruz, and is a graduate of L.A.M.A. Jimmy has played for years in the L.A. club circuit, is a graduate of M.I. in Hollywood, Ca. and is a prolific song-writer. By combining their talents, Daniel and the boys have created the hook-driven tunes that define their sound. Brought together by the rush of playing live, and the joy of a good singable song, Open Window started out by playing shows at the Universal City Hard Rock, The Gig, and other L.A. based clubs. They quickly refined their material offstage to get ready for their first album together in 2005. Being longtime musicians, the boys all knew how to lay down tracks and have a blast in the studio. The way it should be. In 2006 they were invited to include two tracks from their album on the Monster energy drink compilation CD. They have also been in heavy rotation on Indie 104.7 and have been nominated for an LA Music Award, and are scheduled to perform live at the awards broadcast in November.
