Biography

Rochester, New York indie electro band Joywave began in 2010, formed by vocalist Daniel Armbruster, guitarist Joseph Morinelli, bassist Sean Donnelly, keyboardist Travis Johansen (later replaced by Benjamin Bailey), and drummer Paul Brenner. Joywave first offered up a sample of their '80s-inspired electro tunes in early 2011 with the single "Golden State." They earned a fair amount of attention through a series of online mixtapes that meshed original tunes with other artists' material, all remixed to include Joywave's signature playing and vocals. In addition to these mixtapes and early single releases, the band released the Koda Vista EP in 2012 and the How Do You Feel? EP in 2014. Apart from their own releases, Joywave made frequent guest appearances on their friends' singles, showing up in the role of both remixers and guest performers on standout recordings by Big Data and Betty Who. The Big Data collaboration, titled "Dangerous," reached the top of U.S. alternative charts in 2014, was licensed for multiple screen appearances including the feature film Veronica Mars, and led to Armbruster performing live vocals for the song on U.S. TV's Late Night with Seth Myers. Recorded in Rochester, New York, Joywave's full-length debut (which added seven tracks to the four on How Do You Feel?), How Do You Feel Now?, was released in the spring of 2015 on their own Cultco Music label, an imprint of Hollywood Records. ~ Fred Thomas & Marcy Donelson
