Amity's contagious groove is built upon the chemistry they've had since they formed in 1998. Each member's individual personality forms a sound unlike anything heard today. The thundering percussion provided by Ryan Sheets culminates into an original sound that will make you move to the music with an explosive rock beat that will leave you begging for more. The rhythm section is completed by bass player Kenny West who provides the underlying heartbeat to the music with an articulate style. Guitarists Ezra Hall and Chet Tobrey drive the group with heavy riffs and masterful leads. The vocals supplied by Chet and Kenny offer an ear catching contrast to the rumbling rhythm section. The thought provoking lyrics, distinctive melodies, and huge harmonies catch your ear as their sounds rise above the mix.
These Fairmont WV natives intend to put their state on the map. After having played numerous shows in the area, they have formed a local following that keeps growing with every show. They have played with many notable bands since their formation, including The New Relics, The Argument, Cheap Truckers' Speed, Fake Eddie, Euclid, and many others. Adapting to the crowd is one of Amity's specialties, whether playing a toned down acoustic set or a full on hard rock show Amity can appease the needs of any fan.
Amity recorded their first seven song EP in 1999 and are currently in the studio creating their upcoming full album. The members of the band are very pleased with their new songs and are looking forward to releasing the album soon. With exciting instrumental breaks, blistering solos, and inspiring vocal sounds, Amity takes you on a wild ride though their great covers and even better originals. The future is looking bright for this group of musicians. Any fan will attest to the fact that seeing Amity is like witnessing the revival of rock.
