Push Play was an American pop/rock band formed on Long Island, NY in 2006. The band consisted of CJ Baran (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards), Steve Scarola (lead guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Nick Deturris (bass) and Derek Ries (drums). The band originally found independent success by utilizing social networks, new media, touring, and distributing their own music on various digital vendors including iTunes. Their charitable efforts were nationally recognized through the Push Play for Purpose campaign, a commitment to donate free performances in effort to raise funds for a multitude of charities. Push Play eventually signed to record label Wind-up Records in June 2009, where they released the album Found. In April 2010, the band announced they were parting ways to pursue personal goals, ending their 4 years as a band.
