Fayetteville, NC based-band Rookie of the Year began as a solo project by frontman and vocalist Ryan Dunson and over the past three years, has evolved into a collaborative effort and full band, thanks to the addition of guitarist Mike Kamerman and bassist, Pat Murphy. A band known for an extremely heavy touring schedule and electric must-see shows, Rookie of The Year has made an indelible impression on the scene they came up in, playing numerous dates on the Vans Warped Tour, rocking out energetic sets at Bamboozle year after year, and building a loyal fan base one person and one city at a time. With the release of the debut LP The Goodnight Moon, in 2006, Rookie garnered incredible amounts of accolades from both fans and media, and solidified themselves among the masses as the “Hardest Working Band” in music.
With the band’s sophomore effort, Sweet Attention, Rookie has refined their songwriting and sonic skills, offering an ear pleasing pallet of sounds that will greatly expand the ranks of their already loyal and rabid fan base. And today with over 7 million plays at MySpace.com and major national tours with artists like Secondhand Serenade, Cute Is What We Aim For, MEST, Quietdrive, and The Spill Canvas under their belts, it’s pretty clear that Rookie of The Year is set to break out! We expect you and the rest of the world will be paying attention!
