Lead vocalist Kristin Kearns and lead guitarist Adam Hatfield were introduced to each other playing live music in the local Nashville scene. After launching the band as a just-for-fun recording project, Kearns and Hatfield welcomed Nate McCoy (bass) and Casey Conrad (drums) into the group in early 2010.
Their independently released first-effort garnered the band wide recognition throughout indie songwriting circles, with the lead track “Never Fall Down” winning the 2011 American Sound Song Contest. Songs such as “Far Away” and “Lose You” were prominently featured on TV shows including SyFy’s Stargate Universe, ABC’s The Lying Game, and The CW’s Fly Girls, proving the scope of the band’s wide-ranging appeal from geeks to glam.
Within several months of their first release, they released a three-song EP exclusively online, entitled What You Want – EP. “Take This City” from the second release has taken off virally, with thousands of impressions via fan-uploaded videos online. Recently, the band won big at the 2011 Nashville Independent Music Awards, taking “Artist Of The Year,” as well as “Song Of The Year” for their free-download B-Side track “Perfectly Worthless,” which has been downloaded over 10,000 times by fans on Facebook.
