The Depictions are a garage rock/surf pop quartet hell-bent on captivating audiences with their catchy melodies, creative guitar licks, pulse-pounding rhythms and quirky on-stage antics. The Depictions formed when lead vocalist/bassist Joey Shields (former drummer of Southern Pariah and The Glass Daggers) wanted to take his solo project Strawberry Blonde Werewolf to the live stage. He came into contact with guitarist/backing vocalist Ryan Ehresman (former multi-instrumentalist of Glen Abbey and Synthetic World 859), who reworked Joey’s songs to make them more complex and appealing to a wide array of listeners. Soon after, Joey and Ryan met Alex Mendoza (former drummer of Collusion), who provided a rhythmic background and a punk-rock attitude and energy that was imperative to the sound that Joey and Ryan were looking to achieve. The final piece to the Depictions is guitarist/backing vocalist Ian Steinberg, an up and coming singer/songwriter who added another layer of complexity to the music – applying his numerous skills by crafting new harmonies and guitar parts to complement the music.
