                                            Gary Stanton
                                                Lead Vocals
                                                     Guitar




                                      S.O.'s frontman was a
                                      reluctant performer at
                                      first.

Gary first became interested in music when he was given a
guitar in high school. He began to experiment with writing,
and it took a cadre of his friends to get him to perform an
impromptu live show. Instantly impressed with not only
his musical prowress, but also with his songwriting ability,
they urged Gary to share his music with others.

Gary eventually found Joel and later Jay, two musicians
sharing in his ideology and desire, and a band anything but
ordinary was formed.

Gary's unique voice and songwriting have helped him lead
Someting Ordinary into the fray of Chicago's Best new music.

                              Jay has long had two
                              constants in his life - music
                              and faith. This classically
                              trained musician began at a
                              young age, first learning the
                              violin. Jay began writing his
                              own lyrics in grade school,
                              and had produced his first
                              album at age 16.

As he matured into adulthood, Jay was uncertain as to the
role music would play in his life. A soul-searching
sabbatical reflecting on music, faith and his commitment to
each gave him his answer: music was to be an integral
part of his life.

His dedication to music renewed, Jay brought the intensity
and introspection of a professional musician to Something
Ordinary, evidenced by his exemplary ability to create
music, and dexterity with musical instruments and styles.

                                                      Drums
                                              Backing Vocals




                                 Joel began taking an interest
                                 in music at age 6, becoming
                                 involved in his church choir.

Music was only a hobby for Joel, and he matriculated to
college purusing a master's of business from the nationally
recognized DePaul University Kellstadt School of Business.

However, this hobby turned into a passion when he met
Gary while at school. The two connected and realized that
their musical talents complimented each other.

Joel's lush tones provide a perfect backing to Gary's
resonating voice, creating a melody heard long after the song
ends. Joel is also responsible for driving rythyms heard,
as he lays the drum track for S.O. with such fervor and
intensity only coneptualized by viewing a live performance.
