Based in Colorado Springs Colorado, Polaradio released their self-titled debut CD in September, 2006. The first single, Like You hit radio in July. This Time (Both Feet On The Ground) was on the radio in New York literally within an hour after mastering was complete. By December it was named Track of the Day and again named Track Of The Week in March 2007 at garageband.com.
Polaradio may be a new band, but the band members are anything but new to the music world. Dusty Hughes, founder of Polaradio, picked up his first guitar at age 10 and never looked back. He played lead guitar for Second Stone for 10 years before starting his own solo career, producing two of his own CD projects prior to Polaradio. These two solo releases resulted in five successful singles. Dusty is also a talented producer, mixing and engineering projects involving many household names. Polaradio is about hope. "I've felt nearly every pain life can throw at you, but faith has sustained me. The lyrics reflect real hurt, real trials, but most of all, a very real hope," explains Dusty who is on lead vocals, guitar and keyboards.
David Ashley plays electric and acoustic guitar for Polaradio and is the background vocalist. David "Buzz" Busby is the lead guitarist, Frank Romero is the base player, and Dwayne Seibert rocks the drums. All four of these musicians have spent the past couple decades playing in a variety of genres before joining Polaradio.
That these five people have come together to form this band is viewed by all band members as quite distinctly supernatural. Although they all love what they do together musically, it isn't about the stage and the lights. They've all come from scarred pasts, having personally experienced the hope they express in their music. Ask any of them and they'll tell you, after all they've been through, it's about better days ahead.
One recent review finds this music is very emotionally charged. IndieLaunchPad.com reports that Polaradio is "Really great stuff." Kayla Lawton reports that Polaradio is in "an entirely different league" among all the other independent bands she had reviewed in the past year.
