We are four friends that love to make music. New song GLORY out Dec. 1, 2017.

The Chicago based foursome came together through a series of Craigslist ads posted by Ohio transplant and singer/songwriter Aaron Lechlak while searching for band members to help with studio work in early 2014. Teaming up with opera trained singer Kristine Sorum-Williams, jazz bassist Tommy Good, and folk drummer Andy Kearns, what began as a solo project evolved into a three-part harmonic melting pot of folk-rock.

The group pulls largely from modern indie/folk influences, with big harmony hooks and anthemic finishes, though at the heart of it is music rooted in a blend of the American music they grew up on.

The band's early 2017 release, From Far Below, conveys heartache, loss and the everyday challenges of growing up and finding a place in the world. Enlisting the help of engineer Chris Harden (Hard Working Americans, Rachael Yamagata, Plain White T’s) the four began work on the 8 song LP in the summer of 2016. The result was the group’s first studio effort as a full band. A natural evolution from their more casual 2014 debut EP, the record maintains an organic, acoustic driven backbone, but introduces electric textures, better developed vocal harmonies, and more seasoned songwriting and storytelling.
