Stephen Petree’s new band, PETREE, premiered its first full length album, Weakness Makes You Beautiful, on May 18. Its unique Indie/Rock sound incorporates many aspects of modern music which sets them apart from any other Indie/Rock bands.
Stephen Petree acts as lead vocals/telekeyster, David Eropkin as bass, and Aaron Joseph as guitar. Shiny Toy Guns’ artists Chad Petree and Sisely Treasure feature in the album. Ronkat Spearman of P-Funk also features.
Petree’s has also co-founded and song writes for the band Shiny Toy Guns. He has written hit singles such as “Le Disko,” “You Are the One” and “Rainy Monday.” His songs have featured on television shows such as “Dancing with the Stars,” “America’s Next Top Model,” and “One Tree Hill.” Also, the songs featured more recently in “Rock Band 3” and “Iron Man 2.”
“I’ve waited my whole life to be in the position I’m in now,” says Petree. “I feel that the songs on Weakness Makes You Beautiful are better than ever, the band is tight, the vision is clear, and our mission is focused.”
The amazing thing about this album is that the proceeds will go toward a noble outreach. Bassist Dave Eropkin expresses his enthusiasm in PETREE’s involvement toward this noble cause.
“One of the cool things about the label that we’re on (Dream Records) is that it’s attached to a huge outreach in LA called The Dream Center, that helps get people off the street,” Eropkin enthuses. “We’re ecstatic to be a part of that. A portion of the proceeds from ever PETREE CD sold will go back to the Dream Center, to help in their cause.”
