Begrudgingly Yours is…
Vocals & Guitars: Joshua Craig Podolsky
Drums: Johnny Kelly
Bass: Ralph Whittemore
Begrudgingly Yours began when Joshua Craig befriended Johnny Kelly in early 2010 and began talking about collaborating together.
Mid 2010, Kelly and Podolsky began jamming in Brooklyn, NY and Boston and wrote over 20 songs.
Of the songs that stuck out the most to both Kelly and Podolsky, they found the more heavy down tuned droning riff meets wide open chorus with ecentric edge music stuck the best. They pair have persued that specific writing style since early 2011. -More of a Riff dominated baritone approach with an Octave pedal and with many old school analog effects combined to create a sound not yet experimented with by Podolsky.
Kelly and Podolsky spent much time perfecting their sound. Taking close to five years to masterfully create their most elaborate work yet.
Once the music was written, arranged and demoed, Johnny and Joshua sought out for a bass player to round out the outfit.
Enter, Ralph Whittemore. -A childhood friend of Podolsky from the Boston area and a perfect fit to solidify the three piece.
Begrudgingly Yours is not a reflection of their prior works, rather a look into the approach that all three players have been interested in creating and finally have.
Enter early 2015
Joshua began demoing vocals for the new outfit with success.
The group have set full rehearsals and have written and recorded an EP’s worth of material.
The band will be rehearsing, shooting a video and performing on the East coast in June, 2015 to debut the act live with a recording to follow suit.
