Manning Burns, Andy Lester, and Adam Sikes found musical common ground as members of The Holler. That band’s fusion of Americana and psychedelia became known as “space country” among fans and friends. As we all know, change is inevitable, and after a year of performing, our three heroes found themselves in a new band. New songs emerged from the ether, a collaborative effort previously hinted at, but never fully exploited. The band has taken a more stripped-down approach, a rootsy blend of influences that cannot be fully defined. The familiar twang of country music rides alongside roughneck garage rock; sensitive singer-songwriter folk music crashes through walls, jacked up on a heady brew of punk and R & B. This is a band that is not content, not satisfied, not comfortable. Experience and influence combine to push the music forward, wherever it leads.
