Before The Origin
Before The Origin
he NYC-based alternative rock act, Before the Origin (‘BtO’), is the unlikely synthesis of 4 young professionals originating from different corners of the world: Dom Biezonski (lead vocals/guitar/electronics), a Polish-born 'neurogenetics of singing' researcher at Rockefeller University; Andrew Krivtsov (lead vocals/guitar/electronics), a Russian app developer/designer; Michele Bazzano (drums), an Italian banker on Wall St.; and Joey D'Alessio (bass), the all-American, classically trained musician/teacher. What could these four seemingly disparate individuals have in common? Parallel lives as musicians with an unwavering passion for songwriting and explosive live performances. Before the Origin was established in early 2014 when Dom and Andrew were engaged in another musical project, only to realize that their similar musical interests, aspirations, and natural songwriting chemistry signaled the call for something new, special, and unique. Adding Mike and a former bassist to the mix, what followed was an obsessive devotion to writing and rehearsing, an effort that within a few short months generated the majority of tracks for what would ultimately become their debut album, “Who We Are”, released in January of 2016. Merging elements of alternative and punk/pop rock, this album was particularly distinguished by Dom and Andrew’s exchange of lead vocals and guitars across tracks, multidimensional lyrics, Mike’s explosive drumming, and deep bass underpinnings that held this melodic universe together. Quickly after, Before the Origin released an official music video for album’s title track, “Infinite Jest”, a song about the pain of cycling through various failing relationships; this track has been viewed over 10k times across social media platforms, and continues to draw attention from new fans. Between the end of 2014 and present, Before the Origin have played an endless stream (50+) of shows locally around Manhattan & Brooklyn, and outside NYC including NJ, FL, and MA. Notable venues have included the famous Gramercy Theatre, the Cutting Room, the Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery, Mercury Lounge, DROM, the Delancey, 89 North, Santo’s Party House, and the now defunct Black Bear Bar, Grand Victory, and Trash Bar. With Joey joining the band in late 2016, Before the Origin have been relentlessly writing songs for their sophomore album, slated to be released by the end of May, 2018. With time, the themes and songwriting approaches of Before the Origin have continued to evolve, touching on the nature of relationships, existentialism, universalism/cosmism, and politics. In short, their music aims to inspire new perspectives on old ideas. Join the BtO family and support their great passion as these hardworking musicians continue to push their band to new heights!
