The BangTower project was formed to explore new musical landscapes by bringing together artists from different musical specialties, disciplines and physical locations to create something exciting and exceptional.  

Their debut release "Casting Shadows" (2010) features legendary bassist Percy Jones of “Brand X”,  Grammy winning guitarist/engineer/producer Neil Citron and LA "Drum Guru" Walter Garces and was produced by Jon Pomplin and Neil Citron. 

The single “This is My Town”, a nod to New York City, was released in 2013 and is the first BangTower song to feature vocals from Neil Citron. The "lyric video" was released shortly after, joining two other music videos from the first album.. 

Returning to the project for the December 2016 sophomore release "With N With Out" are Percy Jones, Neil Citron, Walter Garces, and Jon Pomplin (playing bass and keys). In addition, the second album also features several guest artists including drummers Frankie Banali, Rodger Carter, and Josh Greenbaum, bassists Robbie “Pag” Pagliari, Joan Fraley, and Chris Colovus, and Justin Stone on piano. 

The 3rd BangTower record "Hey, Where'd Everybody Go?" was released as a digital only EP in September of 2017 and features the return of Neil Citron, Robby "Pag" Pagliari and Frankie Banali. Several tracks also appear on the CD version of the 4th album "The Road We Travel". 

The 4th BangTower release “The Road We Travel” features Neil Citron and Robbie "Pag" Pagliari with "Rudd Weatherwax" and "Maynard G Krebs" was released to digital retailers in fall of 2019. Also, the limited edition CD also contains specially mastered tracks from “Hey, Where’d Everybody Go?” featuring the late Frankie Banali on drums. 

By combining digital technology and traditional studio recording techniques, musicians from New York, Illinois, Nevada, California and Hawaii were able to collaborate, write and record intricate, soulful music with a distinctive and fresh personality. Compositions that challenged each player’s imagination and style by pushing the edge of their musical “comfort zone”, while remaining familiar and accessible to both the musician and non-musician fan alike. Although each track is an exceptional stand-alone masterpiece, each one remains an integral part of the over-all context and feel of the music, and the BangTower project as a whole.
