Whatever Sinks Your Ship
Raw and in-your-face, Precious has a sound similar to The Who with a little Sonic Youth thrown in for good measure. Drummer Matt Bloodwell drives the Precious rhythm with incredible skill and agility - and he's a master when it comes to stick twirls. Joe Panton holds down the bass line while delivering driving rock licks. Lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Steve Garron performs with the vitality of every major frontman in history, from Roger Daltry to Bono. An icon on the Orlando, FL scene, Precious released their first album in 1999 and sold over 1000 copies simply by playing local venues. The first single off of the LP, 'Bi-Curious George' received 17 weeks of airplay on Orlando's WTKS and spent 4 weeks in the top 5 requested songs. Precious signed an exclusive recording contract with Cell Records in early 2003 and recently released their second LP, 'Whatever Sinks Your Ship'. They are preparing to spread the Precious word with a Fall 2003 tour.
