CONTACTS & CONFIDENCE originally formed in October 2012 as side project for Stephanie Mullins (vocalist) and Joshua Austin (guitarist/vocalist). This band quickly grew from experimental project to full time band after the release of their Craig Owens (Chiodos/D.R.U.G.S./Isles & Glaciers) produced debut single "Amor Vincit Omnia" which dealt with the harsh reality of standing by a loved one with cancer.
In late winter/early spring 2013 CONTACTS & CONFIDENCE solidified
their line-up, adding Mike Robinson (guitarist) and later Steve Menditto (bassist) and Alexis Shook (drummer), and began taking on their music scene full force, compiling an impressive history of bands they've shared the stage with, including earning a main stage slot for a SOLD OUT local show at House Of Blues Cleveland.
CONTACTS & CONFIDENCE have also played two STADIUM/ARENA shows:
A STADIUM show as local opener for OWL CITY at 35,000 seat InfoCision Stadium in Akron, Ohio on the campus of The University of Akron.
And most recently and ARENA show being one of only two unsigned Cleveland market bands asked to play OHIO METALFEST at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio on the campus of Cleveland State University.
CONTACTS & CONFIDENCE recently finished recording at Vibe Studios with co-producers Fred Mascherino (Terrible Things, ex-Taking Back Sunday) and John Burke (Modern Day Escape, Envoi, Drive Side Impact) to record their debut EP "This Is Not An Exit!" which features a song guest produced by Craig Owens of Chiodos.
"This Is Not An Exit!" is due to be self-released February 11th, 2014.
