Bio

Brandon Higgins

Brandon grew up in Broomfield, Colorado. He received his first guitar right before he turned 14 years old. While he had been interested in music, and even practiced violin for a short time in his youth, the guitar struck a chord in his soul. He practiced daily throughout his teens, wrote his first songs, and, remarkably, was accepted into the top choir at his high-school his senior year. With no formal music education, he started his first band as high school ended and performed in Denver at the Gothic Theater for a 500 person crowd. Unfortunately, though he believed he had found his true calling, his decision to attend CU Boulder for a Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Degree resulted in the loss of his musical companions. After almost three years of no musical consistency and with the support from his family, he decided to pursue music full-time based on a promise he had made to himself after deciding to attend University. That year was one of the most difficult he had ever experienced, and almost resulted in his surrender, but, he found Matthias and Andrew. 

Andrew Wolfe

Andrew grew up in Lafayette, Colorado. He was introduced to music at a very early age, starting piano lessons before kindergarten. He went on to learn saxophone, playing in the concert and jazz bands in middle and high school, and then received his first bass at the start of college. Andrew was always a devoted musician, but dealt with depression that would interfere with his ability to access his creative energy. When that depression deepened as he worked towards his bachelor's in Math and Computer Science, the bass guitar is what eased the dread—he could sink into the music and just play for hours on end. Andrew always believed that music was a relevant part of his life, but after settling into the nine-to-five grind of his work as a mobile applications developer, he felt that flicker starting to dim. His joy and hopefulness for music was rekindled in the improvisation that initiated the organization of Darling Overdrive.

Matthias Mandl

Matthias is a drummer, and he’s known it since the beginning. He’s never missed an opportunity to tap out the rhythms that stream from his soul, and that becomes so apparent when you listen to him play. Growing up right outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Matthias was exposed to music through the churches he attended with his family and was influenced by the gospel genre that surrounded him. His formal education came with high school band and he stretched into using video based social media as a way to hone his skills in both drumming and recording. Matthias was torn from his home because his father found a better job in Colorado, but embraced the change, taking on the challenge of building relationships quickly in order to find other musicians to work with. Being the youngest in the group, Matthias has not attended a University, but balances the over-analytical thinking of Brandon and Andrew with pure, fearless action.

We are Darling Overdrive.
