Throughout the past decade, St. Louis, Missouri has seen its share of great local rock bands go all the way with their music. Bands like The Urge, Gravity Kills and Mesh StL are all names that appear on the list. And very soon another name will be added…Essence Of Logic. Combining styles of hard rock and funk with elements of reggae, jazz, hip-hop and blues, Essence Of Logic is a powerhouse of energy when it comes to doing what they love and that‘s making music. The group, formed in 2001, is powered by the capturing riffs and rhythms of guitarist Dave Seithel; the intricate walking and slap bass lines of bassist Dan Hunzeker; Jeff Nations’ melodic vocal stylings and guitar work; the solid and seasoned drum beats by Brian Schaeffer and masterful turntable scratching by the one and only DJ Mahf. E.O.L. has rocked some of the Midwest’s finest venues including The Pageant, Mississippi Nights, The Blue Note and Pop’s where they shared the stage with Josh Todd of the rock band Buckcherry. Their explosive live show is one of a kind and one can see, after attending an Essence Of Logic concert, the pure, raw energy and emotion that goes into their music and performances. The band got a good buzz going in 2003 when demo versions of their songs “Two O’clock Stumble” and “Life As We Know It” began circulating on multiple college and major national radio stations. On October 1, 2004 the band independently released their debut full-length album entitled What's The Story? which features some of the best material that E. Of L. have created in their 2 1/2+ years together as a band. The album literally features something for everyone. From the two brand new singles "Barely There" (which landed them slots on the Capescene Vol. 1 and COMO Bands Together compilations due out late 2004) and "What's The Story?" to the infectious funk groove of “Beautiful” to the mellowed out, laid back, kickin’ back in the sand beach song “In The Summer”, everyone is guaranteed to find at least one song on this album that they will truly love. If you’re looking for head-nodding, body- movin’ music that stands high above the primitive, simplistic, mainstream “bands” that over saturate the media and radio these days then look no further…you’ve found Essence Of Logic.
