Applespacebar is a new band from Atlanta Ga. in the United States, featuring guitarist/composer Ben Trexel and vocalist/lyricist Johnny Nine. Both accomplished solo artists in their own right, Trexel and Nine are very excited to combine their talents for this unique project to reach even larger audiences with their accessible yet original sound. Lake Trechsel joined on as drummer and has made a great impact on the band’s sound.
Applespacebar’s music can best be described as alternative modern rock with both melodic and hard edges. We feel that the songs will connect with the listener on many levels and invite repeated listenings. We are hoping for the opportunity to make that connection. A full length debut album, WELCOME TO THE DREAM was released on January 6, 2009 on the Tangent Music Group label.

Why this name?
When recording on a Macintosh computer using Pro-Tools, the key command to start recording is pressing the Apple key followed by the Spacebar key. It dawned on me that this would be a cool name for the band.
Our influences are varied but definitely include Stone Temple Pilots, Coldplay, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Tool, Foo Fighters, Three Days Grace, Led Zeppelin, Collective Soul
