Based in Athens, Georgia, A.D. Blanco is a full-sounding rock band that represents a unique blend of genres: organic indie rock paired with hi-fi modern alternative. This young group reflects their age with the energy they bring to live performances, while their creative sophistication reflects that of a group far their senior.
“…the band fits in alongside palatable radio mainstays like The Strokes, Hot Hot Heat or Modest Mouse… “Time Never Wasted” centers around an impassioned melodic vocal delivery and is dense with interesting flourishes… the band’s core sound… weaves together elements of pop and garage to build emotive, danceable earworms.” – Flagpole Magazine
Frontman Bennett Evans leads the group on guitar and vocals, while bassist Owen Lange and drummer Aaron White comprise an energetic and tight rhythm section. Their debut album Time Never Wasted, released in summer of 2021, was recorded and mastered with the help of notable Athens musicians Ben Hackett and David Barbe.
At the 2019 Battle of the Bands at the 40 Watt Club, “The rock band… upped the whole audience’s energy and closed out the competition.” – The Red and Black
