Transatlantic, The

years active: 2010 – 2013

The Transatlantic is an American rock band based out of Springfield, Illinois, which formed in the spring of 2010.  It is comprised of Kirk Donley (vocals/guitar), Dustin Sendejas (guitar/vocals), Phil Sgambelluri (bass), and Brandon Carnes (drums/vocals).  Their first EP “Small Towns Burn a Little Slower,” was recorded and produced by Dustin Burnett in the summer of 2011.  With smooth vocals, steady beats, and a pinch of flourishing on the guitars, The Transatlantic’s brand of windows-down American rock music is both hooky and impressive.  They meld Jimmy Eat World-style pop/rock with roots-rock a la Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen in a way that makes their music appealing to listeners of all ages.  Atop this canvas is painted lyrics that speak to middle-American/Midwestern life, with recurring themes of big dreams, small towns, and teenage heartbreak.  The Transatlantic is road-worn, but not weary, and is ready to deliver their rock n’ roll to listeners the world over.
