Calendar for Preston, and their unique alternative rock sound, came on the Columbus Ohio music scene in late 2007. After only a few short months together they won their first battle of the bands which awarded them recording time at a local studio. In the span of a month they wrote and recorded 5 songs for their initial EP. This self-titled EP gained them interest from MLB.com along with Grammy-winning Producer David Ivory (the Roots, Erykah Badu, Halestorm). After a year of traveling to and from Philadelphia, working with David Ivory and Ivory Productions, they wrote, recorded and released their debut full length album, Paint by Numbers, in July of 2009. Already, Calendar for Preston has received national attention for the album landing them an opening slot on Creed's kick-off show in Pittsburgh PA for the Full Circle tour. MLB.com has slotted them as a Major League Artist beginning September 1st, 2009 alongside such artists as Hoobastank, OAR, Wilco, Daughtry, Elton John, Billy Joel, etc.. Everything has moved fast but they continue to keep up with the pace!
Calendar for Preston consists of Stephen Jordan on lead vocals, Joey Sexton on guitars, Tom Gutman on bass and keys and Ryan Harris on drums. Over the last few years they have played over 250 shows in more than 40 venues in major cities around Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York and Indiana.
