By LYCIA SHRUM THE BATTALION The unique sound of Bryan-College Station band Exist is best described as music with a message. Exist members Jesse Thomason (vocals/gui tar); his wife Ami Thomason (vocals); Crit Russell (bass); Mark Henderson (auxiliary hand percussion) and Justin Rusch (drums); see themselves as artists, who together, create a musical masterpiece. From classical and Spanish guitar move ments gone rock, to incorporating a cell phone (yes ... a cell phone) into its music. Exist has enough flavor that the band said can linger with the listener long after the last song has ended. The band said its sounds are different from that people might be used to hearing in today’s rock music. They describe their songs as being morphed into a completely different feel from the beginning of the song up until the end. With such influences as Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Keith Green, U2, Delirious, the Police and Bob Marley, and a sound that is often compared to those of Incubus (minus the DJ), it is no wonder that Exist is well on its way to establishing a solid fan base in College Station. “This one guy came up to me to tell me he'll jump in his car just to drive around and listen to our CD,” Jesse said. When someone approaches the band like that, Russell said, “that is when you know people love us for doing what we love to do.” Ami said Exist is about speaking to people. She said their music shows what has happened in their own lives. Although Russell, Henderson and Rusch have been playing together since 1997, Ami thrilleo and Jesse are the most recent editions, o on board in 2000. Playing together in ( Station for the past six months has helpedij become a tightly knit group. “Through playing together, I each learned something from the othem bers,” Henderson said. “The whole an evolution of music from then to now With a self-titled EP already undeij belt. Exist is still in the process oftq thi ngs ready before beginning to reccj first full-length LP. Crit said the band to make sure it has devoted listenersl releasing a full-length CD. “Before we release a CD. we n make sure we have people to acii release it to,” Russell said. Exist members said they are able to play for a receptive College! crowd. However, the band also looks fa to expanding its fan base to towns Austin, Dallas and Houston. Jesse s band is in the process of speaking withd ent people in order to make connedifflj play at venues in these towns. Jesse has also started a small record named Infiltrate Records. While Jessei founder, he said each band member conit to the business. With the other memh dling promotions, merchandise, advei public relations and other aspects tot the entire band is busy with the music. “The band does realize that before t able to promote other bands, we want to: centrate on successfully promoting otra music,” Jesse said.
