Emerging from the Wine Country of Southwest California, the four-man rock band, 24E, was born in 2001 with founding members Chad cblime Fergerstrom on lead vocals/ guitar and Bryan The Professor Auer on drums.
24E (which means the constant state of music), recorded 13 tracks for their self-titled first release. The song Broken received national radio airplay and the project sold several thousand copies.
In 2003, 24E added Travis Tingley on guitar and Steve Adler on bass and recorded DIRT LOVE SONGS on Jupiter Records, which attracted some major industry buzz and got the attention of one of the most highly respected attorneys in entertainment law, Owen Sloane.
With the crowds growing in the Southern California region, 24E set out live in 2005 and recorded a 15 track c.d. entitled LIVE FROM JUPIETER. While most of the tracks had not been previously released on a studio album, Jupiter Records wanted to make the energy of a 24E live show available for people to experience all over the country and they did. LIVE FROM JUPITER saw success both nationally and internationally with fans becoming aware of 24E all over the world.
With the growing popularity of 24E live, the boys went in to the studio to capture the songs with noted producer Rob Hoffman - www.elicitmusic.com (Cristina Aguilera, Michael Jackson, Hole, Buckcherry). The song LOVE IS was pre-released to radio as part of an Electronic Press Kit and DVD compilation and went to 10 on the FMQB charts. The new full length c.d. entitled FROM STAGGER TO WIND, released in the Fall of 2007, is filled with melodic rock tracks that are sure to connect with the soul.
From Stagger to Wind spurred four videos, LOVE IS, I CAN'T READ MY MIND, I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME and FALLING DOWN. The most recent FALLING DOWN, released in November of 2008, has been featured on media networks such as The Vault, Video Jam, Eye Music Network, Midwest Nights, MusicDish TV, CMC.
In February, 2009, 24E and songwriter and lead singer Chad Fergerstrom, were selected in the Top 5 at Songwriter's Universe for their song CAN'T LET GO.
The band is back in the studio writing and recording for their follow up to 2007's FROM STAGGER TO WIND and their 3rd studio release in a decade. The new CD will be called MONKS, MONSTERS and THE SUFFERING.
The album calls on the talents of guitarist, Travis Tingley and a host of a new and old collaborators, including ambient artist Bill Olein from Resonant Drift and singer songwriter, Rumulo Costa, formerly of Brilliant Absence.
