The Buzzhorn

Formed in Milwaukee in 1996 as "The Buzz", this quartet began rehearsing and writing material for an extended period of time. Lead singer Ryan Mueller, who held down a job as a construction worker, continued to amass songs to build up a live set. In 1997, after changing its name to Buzzhorn, the group began performing around the Milwaukee club circuit. In 1998, the group recorded its debut album, self-producing it on a very tight budget. The end result was "A Complete Package Of Action-Packed Tragedies". The record drew instant praise among local music critics and the band's live show was excellent. In 2000, Buzzhorn self-released an EP and expanded its touring horizons to include Chicago and Kansas City. A label representative from Atlantic Records heard the band and signed them to a contract in January, 2001. Mueller quit his job as a construction worker and the band headed to Los Angeles to record. In 2002, Buzzhorn released its debut single Ordinary which was followed by Disconnected in July, 2002. The group has been praised for striking a balance between "melodic moodiness and stadium-sized power". Buzzhorn has been compared to Creed, Alice In Chains and Stone Temple Pilots. It has also toured with Monster Magnet. ~ Jason MacNeil
