(Extended Bio)

“First Waking Breath” formed in Temecula, CA. They started as a grunge/punk band in 2000, after Greyson Duncan (vocals/guitar) presented Jimmy Wilson (drums) and Dino Wilson (Bass) with a few songs he had written in hopes of one day forming a band. They all shared similar musical influences such as Nirvana, Dead Kennedys, Tool, and Glassjaw to name a few. The group first formed under the name of “Lack of Authority” playing small shows through out southern California. Soon to follow was a 13 track demo complied of short, yet meaningful songs ranging in topics such as government, suicide, love, and society in general. From the start, First Waking Breath had something to say and they were going to say it.
By the end of 2003, their style progressed to heavier melodic rock, yet still showing signs of punk. After their second name change to “Empty”, the band went into the studio to record a three song EP featuring their epic song, “A Dreamt Reality“. Just as things were looking bright for the trio, bad news struck when Greyson had no choice but to move to Florida. The band made a vow to reunite.
In the winter of 2003 Jimmy and Dino had moved to Indiana. Meanwhile, Greyson had been writing songs in Florida. In 2004, the group reunited and rented a small house in Indiana and started again under their third and final name “First Waking Breath”. They started to play shows in the Indianapolis area and began to build a local following. In 2005, they said goodbye to the Mid-West, packed up, and headed back to California.
