Halo Stereo was formed in 2002 and have been steadily making their mark on the music scene, obtaining radio play, song placements on network television, and FUSE TV’s “Unsigned Artist of the Month” honors for April 2009. FUSE TV featured the video for the track “Blindfold” from the band’s sophomore album “The Invisible War”. Other tracks from “The Invisible War” receiving television placement include the song “Proud”, which was featured on A&E’s “The Cleaner”, and the song “Doorman”, featured on the CBS show “Three Rivers”.
Halo Stereo blends American rock with UK-influenced melodies tapping into a vein of pop rock music that is topped off with psychedelic lyrics and well honed musicianship. The show proved to be a success and Halo Stereo members Andrew Fry (vocals, keys, guitar), Jody Hicks (bass, vocals), Brian Meeks (drums) and Nathan McDonald (guitar) have previously showcased at the Dewey Beach Music Festival as well as at the Red Gorilla Music Festival (RGMF) in 2009, and will be showcasing again at RGMF in 2010. Halo Stereo has also been selected for a 2010 USO Tour as well as the European Music Days festival being held in Paris, France.
