Imagine Green Day, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Metallia and Evanescence all sat down in a room together. They all had a vision, to combine the greatest elements of hardcore, punk rock, metal, rap meldoich piano and female vocals to make a super style, what would they come up with? The answer is simple, and it can be found by listening to the band, All Due Respect.
All Due Respect (ADR) was formed by Sean Smith, a seventeen year old Senior in Holt Michigan. Though the band as it is now, didn't fully form until late 2005, Sean has been toying with music and these ideas since early 2000.
While they are not known to you maybe, ADR has already been recognized on a major scale. With praise from such artists as Trivium, Holly Brook, and Styles Of Beyond, ADR is quickly on it's way to become one of the hottest acts of this age. Their current Instrumental demo which has been on sale for a few months, features a wide variety of musical tastes and styles. With tracks ranging from "Gangsta-Style" hip hop, to the punk sounds of Green Day, it is already becoming a groundbreaking album.
Even though there are 4 members of ADR, the majority of the album is written and recorded/played by Sean Smith. He is the producer, lyricist, guitarist, and vocalist. However he is followed by a closely knit family of a band, with Arin Thelen on piano/vocals, Josh Zimmerman on keyboard, and Cody Bancroft on Bass.
They are currently looking for a drummer, but don't think that stops them. All drums are crafted and programmed by Sean Smith using hi-tech state of the art equipment.
