Splender

Biography

Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Waymon Boone and bassist Adam Cruz formed the choice pop/rock and roll quartet Splender in 1990. THE BRAND NEW York-based group experienced various incarnations, ultimately selecting drummer Marc Slutsky and business lead guitarist Jonathan Svec to around out the music group. The fledgling group embarked on a thorough European celebration tour starting for such nu-metal titans as Korn, in addition to playing several gigs around NEW YORK. Bandleader Waymon Boone was the kid of a specialist R&B/disco singer and frequently accompanied his mom on the highway. Whilst travelling with her, he observed first-hand the hardships that go with being truly a musician. This didn’t deter him or the music group as they had been finally rewarded using a documenting agreement from Columbia Information after they had been awarded best music group at a competition. Their many years of hard work paid back if they teamed with reputed musician/manufacturer Todd Rundgren on the 1999 debut record Halfway Down the Sky. The record spawned two minimal crossover strikes in “Yeah, Whatever” and “I BELIEVE God Can Explain.” Regardless of the achievement, the album didn’t surpass goals. In 2001, the music group signed with renowned music mogul Clive Davis’ J Information. A year afterwards, To Whom IT COULD Concern premiered.
