"2011 Ultimate Local Music Guide"

"...plays a largely instrumental mix of new-agey indie pop and atmospheric rock, with influences running from Explosions In The Sky to The Postal Service. "Leaving Things Alone" is a gorgeous instrumental ballad in the vein of Sigur Ros or The Album Leaf.” - Tampa Bay Times


Still working on that hot first release.



Despite Distance began in 2008, when the four Easterling brothers (Jeff, Luke, Trevor, Matt) teamed up with long-time friend Ty Green. Our influences were all over the place, from indie rock to jazz and blues, metal to instrumental/ambient. Because of this, it took nearly three years for us to really blend those influences into a signature sound that truly represents us.

We have played shows all over Florida, from Daytona Beach to Orlando, and plenty right here in our hometown of Tampa. We have never left a crowd disappointed, and take great pride in the energy of our shows.
