Bio

Innocent Persona is a pop rock band from New York City which formed in 2015. The group, founded by lead vocalist and multi instrumentalist Ittai Stern, also includes guitarist/saxophonist Jose Alonso from Brooklyn, guitarist/bassist Charlie Freeman who hails from Marietta, Georgia. Joining them are  bassist Shalom Bondar and drummer Mike Landolfi. The band takes pride in its eclectic style. With songs ranging from Alt-Rock to EDM, Innocent Persona meshes multiple genres and feature Dylanesque lyrics to create a unique experience. In early 2015, Stern met award winning producer Erez ‘Diwon’ Safar who began coproducing Innocent Persona tracks with producer Nathan Ben David at Bancs Media, an LA based production company. Later that year, the band connected with Doug Staiman another LA producer, who was formally the front man for The Groggers, a Jewish punk rock band from Queens NY. Together, Stern and Staiman composed “Destiny” a 60’s style love song which was released in December of 2015. Staiman also produced  “Celestial” a track from the Innocent Persona debut EP released on June 7, 2016 entitled Innocent Persona. Attesting to the band’s diversity, the song is a brooding commentary on the ravages of war. Currently, Innocent Persona is rehearsing, as it plans to perform in the fall of 2016 and tour in 2017 featuring tracks from the debut album as well as a broad litany of songs which have not yet been recorded.
