Based out of South Carolina, Crossfade consists of Ed Sloan (lead vocals, lead guitar), Mitch James (bass, vocals), Brain Geiger (drums), and Tony Byroads (dj, vocals). With only the barest elements Crossfade started off in the late nineties when Sloan, Geiger, and James formed a group aptly named The Nothing. As a heavy metal rock band reminiscent of Metallica, The Nothing relocated to Atlanta then Georgia before settling back home to South Carolina. Out of Ed Sloans brick garage Sugarstar studio was soon built which laid a path for the band to experiment and grow.


A later addition to the band, Tony Byroads Djayed his way into the mix. Having a wide vocal range and song writing abilities Tony was a perfect fit for the band. Along with Tony, The Nothing expanded their range as a new sound evolved. Sugardaddy Superstar was born.


With the luxury of being able to record anytime they pleased, Sugardaddy Superstar came out with their first album within nine months. Local radio stations started playing their self produced tracks. Soon an alliance with Taxi, an A&R company out of Los Angeles, was forged and new material was developed. With a wink of fate the band, while playing at Taxi's annual "Road Rally," caught the eye of longtime LA promoter Chris "Hotrod" Long. Long had previously worked with megastars such as Rage Against the Machine and Stone Temple Pilots. Within two weeks of seeing the stage show Chris signed on as manager.


Sugardaddy Superstar was gaining momentum and the industry began to take notice. Earshot Records A&R frontman Doug Ford had been tracking band, and set them up for a showcase in New York. Columbia signed the band immediately after hearing their performance and the band changed their name to Crossfade.


Crossfade released their self titled album in 2004, a smooth mix of heavy metal tinged with grunge. Singles, Cold, Starless, and Dead Skin show the versatility within the album. From polished waves to echoing percussion the musical journey is one that Crossfade will not ever have to be sorry for.
