FAMOUS UNDERGROUND's sound and music is edgy, melodic and hooky, bringing a paradigm shift to the arena of rock. It's been said that they have created something fresh and exciting in an otherwise stagnated genre.
FAMOUS UNDERGROUND's self-titled studio release was produced by Nick Walsh, and mixed by Darius Szczepaniak (SUM 41, BLACK CROWES, BIG SUGAR, SACRIFICE) at Rouge Valley Studio in Toronto. The new recording takes Walsh's writing to a more defined state where the lyrics delve more into the complexities of the real world.
