Bio

So often we are perplexed by the real life experiences and insights that we perceive an artist to have endured in order to write the lyrics that comprise our new favorite song. But, no more so than when that artist has only been experiencing life for just a few short decades. That’s exactly where the music from the fresh, new band called Ladder El takes us.

Fronted by the extraordinary vocals of singer and acoustic guitar player, Joel Bowlsby, the band grabs us and causes us to land – right there! Backed by an equally artistic and insightful group of young men (most not due to graduate from college until 2005) is Bobby Mulrennan on lead guitar, Tony Tompkins on bass, Tony Erickson on keys and the rock solid drummer (from which the band derives it’s name) Alex Latterell.

Ladder El’s music and awe-inspiring live shows are the rare combination of the breath of fresh air coupled with the winds of wisdom. Having had their sound compared to John Mayer, Cold Play, Dashboard Cofessional, Maroon 5 and Howie Day they jokingly have nicknamed themselves “ColdConfessionalMayerDayFive” which lends credence to their uniqueness.

If the preceding is only a brief description of the launching pad that Ladder El is taking off from, it goes with out saying that they are a band worth listening to and worthy of keeping a close eye on. With a fresh and modern sound combined with the collective poise of legendary rocker’s this band will one day be used as a musical success story from which future bands will base their nicknames from.
