How it Started ? Where We’re Going
Several years ago, drummer and lead singer Joe Stiles met Guitarist Sean Tibbetts. Sean and Joe immediately found a song-writing partnership. They have been on a mission to develop a distinct sound which they believe they have finally found after years of collaboration. Approximately . two and a half ago while looking for a bass player,Sean and Joe met Assim Kolakovic.
Assim was fresh to the Americas and after ten minutes of jamming with Sean and Joe the two had realized they found what they were looking for. Joe says, “I knew I had found my bass player.” “He was unreal, funky, and driving, always in the pocket.” We just clicked.” With influences from Led Zeppelin to Ozzy- from Godsmack to Aerosmith and The Who- The song writing encompasses a variety of sounds.We want to touch every person in the audience during at least one point throughout the show. We don’t want to write in a little box, we want to touch multiple genres in every set.
As for the writing, in the band’s view song and melody are everything.If it doesn’t sound good on acoustic and singing, it is no good.
We like to use the studio as an instrument to get down the songs as best we can, without going too far.
As a live three piece band, you have to put everything in the right place, not depending on gimmicks.We want to write music that people can relate to, not writing in what is necessarily pop radio context, but writing music that speaks to the listener about their life experiences
as well as ours.
