Biography

Nathaniel(singer/Guitar) had been in out of bands since 2003, progressing as a musician and a person. With a 4 year age gap with Nick(Bass) and Kaleb(drums) there was a certain role model effect with Nathaniel, having been patrons of a lot of his performances. And also performing in out of bands themselves since 2007. But in 2007 Nathaniel's music career had taken a halt. He had found out his girlfriend was pregnant with their son Parker. So in a rush of fatherly duty Nathaniel had gotten married and joined the United States Army. After 2 years Nathaniel came home, and sadly divorce was in the air.

Nathaniel continued writing fueled with this raw emotion. And in the meanwhile, Nick and Kaleb just so happened to be looking for a new music project. After contacting Nathaniel in 2010 a new project had formed. In two days and a few bottles of Whiskey Eric Blair had formed and 3 songs had been written.

As they continued on playing more and more, they began getting booked in major cities around their tri-state area.

Then one day in 2011 they were playing a "battle of the bands" and they met Piano player Jacob Leddy. Who soon joined their family and began writing more melodic and depth music with the addition of the piano/organ sound.

As they began writing more and more they decided it was time to get some tracks recorded. In the summer of 2011 they met Producer Scot Gallop and they began working hard on their first E.P.

Now the E.P. is out, and they're playing more shows and getting more recognition as the band they are.

"We can only thank anyone and everyone that has helped us out in anyway. They are our fuel, their love and support is what keeps us going. Thank you." - Eric Blair and the Absolute Nothings
