Blending Americana with electronics, Brooklyn, NY-based Phonograph had their genesis when Matthew Welsh (vocals, keyboard, guitar) began working with Tony Maimone of Pere Ubu. Studio engineer John Davis (bass, synthesizer) joined Welsh, soon introducing him to Dave Burnett (drums) and Abe Seiferth (guitar). Phil Sterk (pedal steel, keyboard, guitars) completed the lineup in 2005. As a result of a chance meeting with Wilco bassist John Stirratt, Phonograph found themselves opening for the popular country-rock band. Arclight Records released Phonograph's self-titled debut in February 2007.
