Singer/songwriter Jason Legacy formed Slow Buildings in Northern NJ in 2005, writing and recording their first cd, Good Things Happen, while in grad school. Written, played, engineered, produced and released by himself, the cd was a combination of melodic pop and ‘indie' rock. He recorded another cd, Everything Like This, in 2008, displaying a more confident and aggressive sound. With school finally over, Jason began performing live in 2009 with various line-ups, while finding mainstay lead guitarist Oce Dytioco, who helped shape the band's increasingly electric and dynamic sound. 2010 featured the arrival of newcomer Chris Basile on bass, as well as further gigging around the NY/NJ area. The band was officially completed with the addition of drummer Zee in early 2011. The band's excellent new cd This Is Dead Aesthetic Junk is completed and being shopped around for a future release.
Slow Buildings have played at numerous venues in the NY/NJ area since Sept. 2009 to ever-growing audiences, including Arlene's Grocery, Fontana's, The Delancey, Loop Lounge and the Clash Bar.
