Drop Dead Famous Drops Their New Album

By: Daytona Hawkins

Windsor based band, Drop Dead Famous, made up of Rob Higgins (lead vocals), Chris Blais (keyboard), Dave Sinewitz (guitar),  and Scott Holmes (bass) has released their self-titled album.

Their new album – now available for purchase on iTunes includes tracks: Find Myself, Back on You, Dream with Me, Survive Tonight, Blue Rose, Ten-09, Again, For You, Surrounded and Lost My Way.

All songs on the album are a collaboration of the five members; Higgins and Sinewitz writing lyrics and sheet music, and Blais and Holmes brothers doing instrumentals. “We didn’t dedicate the first album to anyone specific because we are so lucky to have such a huge great support group around with family, friends and fans who became great friends that it would be impossible to single anyone out….one song in particular called Blue Rose was written about the passion of my special little sister Jenny; so in that case I would like to dedicate that to her…” say Higgins.

“Success comes in many forms and we all agree that to have found something we love to do and are able to do it is very rewarding…”

The band formed in 2010 when Rob Higgins and Chris Blais – formerly part of Vibe-a-Tribe and No Ordinary Machine – teamed up with Dave Sinewitz and bothers Scott and Chris Holmes of Heat Mizer and they have been creating music and stealing the spotlight of local music ever since.

The 2010 formed band has been a favourite at festivals such as: LaSalle Strawberry Festival, BeaverFest, and RockFest and recently opened for the band Theory of a Deadman at a sold out show in Barrie and have received fantastic response from their music playing on radio stations all over Ontario and the US along with great support at every one of their performances.

Their music sticks mostly to the rock/pop genre but many fans have said that they definitely ‘have their own sound’ and they are always looking to incorporate different sounds, vocal and instrumental techniques, and solid lyrics.

The band loves to write, record, and perform, but there is always a battle for time with all members having full time careers and families outside of the band. They are currently planning new, and upcoming events and shows.

“Success comes in many forms and we all agree that to have found something we love to do and are able to do it is very rewarding…”
