The 54 grew from what was once an experimental acoustic project between classmates.
In 2007, they set their sites on further developing an edgier sound that displayed what was becoming increasingly absent from the Rock scene: honesty, rawness, and showmanship. At this point, only one thing was missing: a name. They experimented with several ideas: Chucks and Forces, StereoTip, Better than Sects… Nothing was striking a chord, until it came: The 54!
With the new name came a new attitude, confidence, and a deeply rooted desire to transform their project into something that would one day be larger than life.
One of their undeniable strengths is their ability to merge different sounds with an explosiveness that inspires listeners to respond with the same uncontrollable, unapologetic impulsiveness. With lyrical content to expose the pre-historic definitions of fun, music, celebration, and honest human expression, The 54 shows signs of becoming the relatable rock band by which every other band claiming to be “of the people” must measure themselves.
Having developed a cult-like following in Atlanta, the band has their eyes set on national and international ambitions. The 54 is soon to let the world know what they’ve been missing.
