The Music Dept.

Again, a tv show introduced me to great new music. This time it was in the amazing last episode of One Tree Hill, that I first heard The Music Dept. The Music Dept. are Amy Wallace (singer/songwriter), Jonathan Korszyk (singer/songwriter), and Chris Franz (producer/songwriter) who crossed paths late 2009 while cutting their teeth in the Los Angeles music scene. Franz was playing lead guitar for Wallace at venues like Hotel CafĂ© and Room 5, while concurrently producing Korszyk’s band Vienne. Discovering a unique chemistry, the three decided to create a new project, centered on the idea of writing and releasing singles, instead of writing a load of songs to release an album, which they use to create awareness about social issues and the nonprofit organizations working to make a difference. They may be a new name to music fans, but is wasting no time in making its voice heard. Last monday The Music Dept. gained national attention when it’s third release, “Already Fell,” was featured on One Tree Hill. The band is currently recording its next batch of songs and I can't wait to hear what they sound like when they are releasing 'em this summer!
