If you enjoy inspiring melodies, great harmonies, and music reflective of great arena rock bands, then Forewarned is for you! Forewarned is proud to create their own sound, and not copy the typical pop trends of today with Autotune and other false pitch-shifting effects covering up vocals. We prefer the old style of actually singing. While this may not sound like the synthesized effect of voices on the radio today, we can do something that they can't - we can play live shows without lip-syncing (see Resurrection :))!; and believe me, our fans appreciate the amazing live concerts that we put on!
Heading up the band is it's founder and lead singer, Steve Supparits. Most musicians know Steve through his early years of entertaining shows with rock bands Relenting Faith and RockStar. With a great vocal range that he’s not afraid to use, Steve has developed a stage presence and energy in front of an audience that many musicians lack. When Steve’s band opened for national recording artist Rick Derringer, “Mr. Derringer pulled me aside and said that we were the best opener he had ever seen.” quoted Steve. “He even asked us to go back on and close the show after he finished his set! The promoter told me that Rick had never done that before.” Steve also owns the recording studio Resurrection Studios, where he engineers both local CD's and national recordings. Steve is the producer and songwriter of Forewarned's new 2 disc set “ The Resurrection of Rock and Roll”.
Keyboards: Lynn Carol Schriver. Lynn is from Western New York's first family of country music, the Ramblin' Lou Family Band. Lynn has performed all over the country, including being a member and regular entertainer at the WWVA Jamboree in Wheeling, West Virginia, and at Jamboree In The Hills. "Lynn is just as much of a natural on the synthesizer as she is with the piano", said Steve. "It's like Dennis DeYoung's hands are playing, while there's a beautiful woman singing at the same time! Lynn is one of the rare musicians who knows how to crawl inside a song, and bring it to life on stage."
On Bass guitar is Andrew Noto, a melodic bass player who is inspired by Greg Lake and Chris Squire. Andrew is the son of legendary trumpet player Sam Noto. “Luckily for us, talent runs in the family!” said Steve. “Andrew is the progressive center of our music.”
Lead Guitarist Joe Rico has played with several WNY bands, including Park Edge, Lace, and Synergy, to name a few. Joe brings in a fantastic playing style that is unrivaled as a performer. “Joe’s calm demeanor and great lead style fit right in with Forewarned”, quoted Steve.
Background vocalist Marilyn Hudson adds a perfect vocal harmony, and she brings a great rock attitude and performance for our fans. “An audience can tell when musicians are just going through the motions on stage,” said Steve. “Marilyn is the real deal. She puts her heart into every performance, and it adds to the energy that Forewarned brings to our live shows”. Marilyn also has a band with her brother and sister called ‘The Hudsons”. Forewarned has a fantastic array of new music, with everything from blood pumping rock songs and melodic journeys, to 4 part harmony ballads and more. By creating their own identity, rather than joining the multitude of other rock bands that sound exactly alike, Forewarned’s new double CD "The Resurrection of Rock and Roll" stands true to this theme.
