background ...
Transom was formed at the end 2002 when three members of the band Delinquent Seven (Sherry, Randolph, & DeLuna) found themselves without a name and without a bass player following the departure of founding member Scott Andrews. The trio quickly decided that the original music and new sound that they had begun to develop together while in D7 showed too much promise to not come to fruition. Upon enlisting Victor Castaneda, a seasoned and versatile bass player, to round out the lineup, the quartet set about the task of composing and recording their first batch of original tunes. After three years of having played together, the dilemma of having to start over from scratch with a new band name and with new songs has proven to be somewhat of a blessing in disguise, as the mostly recently completed original songs have heralded a strikingly different songwriting approach which seems to warrant a new identity and a fresh start.

style & sound ...
Trying to communicate any band's musical style & sound in easily understood terms is always a difficult and highly subjective task, but one that everyone who is serious about the business of music should recognize as vital to successful marketing. Transom has done an excellent job of showcasing their various strengths both as songwriters and performers by incorporating a wide variety of rock styles into their music, while placing an emphasis on those elements that most easily connect with the widest possible audience. In creating and honing their 'new alternative/pop rock' sound, Transom has focused on music that is easily accessible to even the first time listener. By bringing their strong, clear vocal delivery, tight drum & bass grooves, and a variety of stylistic textures, all smartly framed within a catchy, guitar-based songwriting style, Transom hope to make an immediate impact on its audiences and bring them a level of high energy musical performance not usually experienced on the small stage.

direction & goals ...
Transom is an up and coming new band seriously committed to developing their original music and to reaching an ever-widening audience. By partnering with some of the finest live music venues and clubs in the Chicago and Northern Illinois area, Transom hopes to quickly establish itself as a prominent name on the local & regional music scene, while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the type of musical, marketing, & fan base development that will leave the group well poised for a move to the national scene.
