We are a 6-piece band from Tulsa, Oklahoma. The band originally formed as an experiment. Six kids from an art school that teaches band performance wanted to see what they could do on their own. When a high school battle of the bands came about, Tim, a senior at the time, really only wanted to get a group together, and play a few songs for the sake of the experience. We never intended to go any further than that.
The project started with two guitars, electronic drums, bass and piano. Tim called me when another guitarist never showed up, and asked if I had the time to play in another band. Being in a hardcore band that was slowing down, I couldn't say no to playing a show with some friends. We all got together and played a few things Tim had written, and all we knew is we needed a drummer. I called Tollie, the drummer of my old band, and told him to come down and play with us. Since then, the band format hasn't changed.
We played our first two songs for months in Tim’s bedroom. When Battle of the Bands came along, we really had nothing to worry about. We opened the show, played our two songs (and a brand new cover to fill in our extra time). We raised $400 for the food bank, and won people’s choice.
With our influences ranging everywhere from emo to pop, writing came really naturally to us. As different as we were from each other in the beginning, we all new what we wanted. We have never scrapped an idea, and have written more than 15 songs since we started.
After that show, we just kept practicing together. Since then we've just been playing everywhere we can, from clubs to homeless shelters, and writing and recording whenever we get the chance.

Members: Tim Clark, Drew Richardson, Tollie Pugh, Shaan Seera, Bailey Helterbrand, and Grace Clark
