Supergenius was formed when seasoned players
from two well-known Central PA rock and power pop
bands united to work on singer, Tony Ryder's rough
studio demos. The resulting sound was unexpectedly
rootsy and organic, thus it was decided that this
rather tentative affiliation should become a band.
The name was taken from the late, great Nickelodeon
show "The Adventures of Pete & Pete."
With the addition of pedal steel, the band's smooth,
spacious pop meets twang sound was solidified. Taking
it's cue from the Bloodshot Records artists it admires,
WSG places the art of songcraft over image and favors
a militantly independent approach.
