Bio

Distraught, disheveled, inventive and exploding on the scene. This process details the evolution of the alt-rock experienced aptly tagged Fair to Midland. Exceeding any interpretation of ‘average’ and rather carrying their title as a shield, their sound is an extraordinary surprise for the unarmed listener. Beyond the buzz, and anticipation lies five unique individuals that together have created an intense and wildly exciting brand of rock, citing artistic influences, in both musical and literary outlets.

Drummer Brett Stowers and bassist Jon Dicken offer a rhythmic passion that leads the humble gentlemen in their avant-garde sound. The unearthed discord and unconventional cries of front man Andrew Sudderth infused with guitarist Cliff Campbell’s melodic fury tumble into a captivating creation of sounds, cultures and confusion. Combined with the subtle offering of Matt Langley on keys FTM glides past the expected boundaries and gracefully throws their intense rock harmonies to the flame.

Originally pairing together slightly off the chart of the DFW Metroplex in 1998, FTM worked around school schedules, day jobs and college towns to secure their lineup. The members of FTM proudly call Dallas home as they continually play packed show at the city’s premier venues. Each live FTM show is a breathless experience incorporating each individual’s talents with the sweat and excitement of the crowd. The hyperactive stage antics have quickly led to busted lips, bloody noses and onstage collisions, these methodical interpretations only add to the cries of the crowd for an almost spiritual experience.

Working with producer Mitch Lerner at Reel Time Studios in Denton, TX, Fair To Midland released inter.funda.stifle in June 2004. The album has garnered much praise from press, media, venues and labels around the world. FTM has spent the past year following the release supporting the album through national touring and music festivals in the southwest. Recently joining forces with the booking firm The Agency Group, the band is currently planning a few major tours in ’06. FTM have also been named Top 100 Unsigned Bands in Music Connection magazine and graced the pages of Filter Magazine as one of producer Christopher Fudurich’s Top 10 albums of ’05. As of June 2006, the band has sold 3,000+ copies of inter.funda.stifle, played 400+ shows, has 10,200+ myspace friends and are currently signed to Universal/Republic/Serjical Strike Records.
