Background

Rob Suchecki and Patrick Raimondi started playing in bands together in rural Connecticut. Rob’s uncle had been giving him guitar lessons on a miniature acoustic since he was 8 years old and Patrick had discovered his dad’s 1950s Epiphone guitar. Patrick gravitated towards the bass and, with a mutual love of punk, blues and alternative rock borne from the likes Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day and Nirvana. Patrick and Rob spent the next ten years performing shows in bars even though they were underage.

In 2009, after writing and recording their first EP, (AM)bivalence, as AM Aesthetic, the duo used the internet to look for a drummer. RJ Dowhan, a fellow Connecticut native, was selected. RJ found his passion for drumming from his two older brothers, one of whom played the drums. Being that the drum kit was set up lefty, RJ learned to play it as such, despite being right-handed. AM Aesthetic moved to NYC in 2012 and started recording their second EP ‘Waiting In The Wings’.

Current Activity

Signed to a development record deal in 2013 by BHi Music Group (BHiMG), the band currently splits its time between recording and playing out in the NYC-area. Rob also occasionally plays on other people’s records, including having played guitars on Beyoncé’s ‘Best Thing I Never Had’.

"We Caught Fire"

On November 26, 2013, Guitar World had the exclusive premiere of "We Caught Fire". Dick Wingate, president of the band's label stated, "I'm pleased to launch BHi Music Group with two great New York-area artists and writers, Jon and the Jones and AM Aesthetic." The single from the indie band gained critical acclaim and was picked up by various influential portals.
