Identical twins Justin (Bass/Vocals) and Johnny Santoro (Guitar/Vocals), along with Alex Zarzycki (Drums), are Still Standing. After getting their start in Philly in 1998 they’ve recently moved to L.A. and developed a commercial modern rock sound that still stays true to their punk roots.
Their early work attracted the ears of acclaimed songwriter/producer Marti Frederiksen (who has worked with the likes of Aerosmith, Motley Crue, and Buckcherry) and he soon got on board to help the band record their latest album, “Black and White”.
Q: There’s really something for every fan of modern rock on this album – hard rock, punk, plenty of catchy hooks – how has your sound evolved over the years?
A: Well, growing and evolving as a band has a lot to do with maturing as well as new inspiration and everyday life. New problems and new beginnings come and go. It’s been the three of us since we were teenagers and we each have our own lives and opinions on music, style and pretty much everything. All of these things play a huge part in our sound evolving through the years.
