Hello Stelladeora Fans!!
We know it has been an extremely long time since we last posted anything. Unfortunately our band has been going through kind of a slump. We decided to part ways with our last bassist, DJ. It wasn’t anything personal; DJ is a really cool dude and great bassist, and we wish him the best of luck with his future musical endeavors. Ultimately our styles just clashed, and it was in our mutual interests to go our separate ways.
We took about a couple weeks to a month off, to regroup and really figure out what we wanted in a bassist, and an additional band mate. We were given the contact information of a bassist through a fan/friend/FB follower of ours, so we got in touch and set up a jam session. We decided after a couple auditions, that he is our guy. We are very confident that he will take our music to the next level, and we would love for you all to give him a nice warm welcome!
Everyone please welcome Neil to the band!
Get to Know Neil Brown
“I started playing bass when I was 15 and was very much into alternative rock and industrial rock at the time. As I got older my influences and appreciation for various type of music broadened. From eclectic rock groups like Radiohead and Mars Volta, to hip hop influences like The Roots, dance electronic trance rock groups like Brazilian Girls, Crystal Castles, Mindless self indulgence. I even studied jazz at Rutgers University New Brunswick. Christian McBride, Marcus Miller, Joe Henderson, Miles,Coltrane, and Corea, are among the many influences I love and appreciate.”
"I play electric and upright bass. I have a Marcus Miller American fender 5 string, Kay 1957 upright bass, Aguilar cabinets, Euphonic audio doubler bass head, Korg M3 synth/workstation.
“Aside from playing bass I enjoy producing whatever I feel sounds good and looking forward to a fun and busy summer with the band.”
We hope to get some shows starting in mid summer, maybe late July! Be on the lookout, Stelladeora will be coming back with a bang! We are super excited to have Neil on board!
Justina, Avi, & Mike

Hey Stelladeora Fans!
We know it’s been a couple weeks since we last posted about anything, or even mentioned the new music that we have coming out. We have been going through some changes as a band, and we wanted to be sure of things before we made any sort of announcements. But at this point, it is pretty official to say that Ryan Wilson (Bass) will no longer be a part of Stelladeora. He brought a lot of great ideas and unique arrangements to our music, and we will forever be appreciative of what he brought to the table. He has decided to leave on his own terms, and would like to leave our fans this closing statement:
“It’s a radical change but I’m giving up music. It’s been a wonderful 10 year distraction that’s taken me to quite a number of interesting relationships and creations. But it’s most definitely time to prioritize and focus on other less quixotic endeavors.”
We wish Ryan the best of luck with his future endeavors. However, this does not mean the end for us! We have been searching far and wide for a new bass player, and we will not stop until we find one! We will get back into the game, rockin before you know it! And don’t worry, this hasn’t held up things with our EP at all…
We can assure you that we are coming down to the wire, and are in the process of wrapping things up!
We were in the studio this past weekend, with Mike Lisa, retracking “Magnetic Poetry”, & “Clockwork” with new bass parts, & live drums!! We’d like to give a huge thanks to our friend PJ Angeloni for helpin us out with the bass. Also special thanks to Mary Sanchez for comin up to the studio on Sunday, and documenting us in the action, as a band in the studio.
We do have plans to create a documentary about the process with behind the scenes footage, and interviews, and all that awesome goodness! There is no scheduled release for anything right now, but it is safe to say the the beginning of the new year is going to be a great time for us! We are in transition as a band, and we have even started to write some brand new material. We cannot wait to play new songs for you LIVE!!
Be on the lookout for a release date of the new EP, come the new year!!
Everyone have a great and safe Thanksgiving!
on behalf of Stelladeora
