If patience and persistence are prerequisites for success, then Vertebreaker are destined for great things. Formed in the summer of 2013, Vertebreaker has been slowly, but steadily establishing themselves as one of the premier original rock bands in Central Florida. Hailed as one of “Florida’s Best Bands” by Unrated Magazine, Vertebreaker's sound is heavily influenced by both classic and modern mainstream hard rock. The band consists of singer Jack Connor, guitarists Felipe Gardina and Derek Allen, bassist Robert Secrest, and drummer Herman Ogletree III.Their original, self-titled EP was produced by famed musician and producer Brett Hestla (former Creed bassist, and former singer of Dark New Day and Virgos Merlot). Their latest upcoming release is currently being co-produced with noted engineer Mark Brasel of The Zone Productions. Vertebreaker has receieved airplay on Orlando's WJRR (101.1 FM) as well as Rhapsody, Spotify, and iTunes. The band has already shared the stage with the likes of Steel Panther, Saliva, Blackfoot, Saving Abel, Blacklite District, and Jasin Todd (original guitarist of Shinedown), and is just getting started.Vertebreaker's self-titled EP is currently available on iTunes, CDbaby, Amazon MP3, Spotify, and digital retailers everywhere!
