Bio

The beginning wasn’t pretty – 19 years ago, bad blood and competition held two musicians apart. After giving it a try, guitarist Jim and bassist Jon began a musical pilgrimage that has laid the path to in-flux. Spending years playing throughout the Northwest in multiple cover bands including Disbanned, Eclipse, and Legacy, they began to form their own unique yet complimentary styles that allowed them to blend their musical influences into what has become a local sensation.
As time went on, “the thrill of performing other people’s songs was gone.” Playing cover songs just couldn’t provide the rush of writing and displaying their own creations and the obvious clue was when they added their originals in with their cover sets. “All of a sudden, we were playing songs that really meant something to us,” recalls Jim, “that was the turning point.”
Throughout this period, several members and associates were involved in the support and creation of in-flux. When drummer Mike joined the group, they were playing as Zickefoose with Doug Schumacher as lead guitarist and Jody moving from drums to vocals. Coming from a full career of playing with bands including 6, Well-Lit, Tri-Axis, Rage, The Detonators, and WormDrive, Mike brought with him new energy and driving, rock-steady beats that became another turning point for the band.
Following a similar path through the local music scene, Brian had formed and played with a number of original bands including Perkolator Stickshift, Afterglow, and Cloud Nine. Taking a break from originals, he was playing in the acoustic/metal cover band Haze with Kamiel Youseph (local original artist http://www.myspace.com/kamielyouseph ) and Bill Mathew (The Sand Dunes, Lake Tahoe, NV) when he met up with the guys from Zickefoose at a show in Northern Idaho. As Jody left and Brian entered, the name was changed and the direction of the band was refocused - in-flux was born and the rest is rock history.
After independently recording and producing a 7 song promo CD in late 2007 and early 2008, in-flux took the Spokane music scene by storm. Between local Spokane radio shows on KHTQ Rock 94 ½ FM and KCDA 103.1 FM, guest saxophonist Mark Newell played several shows and recorded with the group. Soon after, another line-up change saw Doug and Mark leave the group, while in-flux solidified into its current 4-piece configuration.
Adding energy-driven performances to a thematic video during their shows, in-flux is a band that you have to see live! Featuring dynamic songwriting and varied musical backgrounds, in-flux seems to shift between genres almost effortlessly. With great songs that include short and catchy powerpop hits like "All About Me" and its counterpart "Sux2BU", to more complex pieces like "Principia Mathematica", and "Oasis", in-flux is all about the music. From soulful melodies, to rockabilly, pop-punk, funk, progressive and classic rock sounds, in-flux has something for everyone. The band is currently focusing on recording the final tracks for their first full-length CD "In-Fluxuated", which will be released @ 8PM on September 19, 2009 @ The NEW BLVD in Spokane, WA.
