BandFolkBlues

We are a folk/blues/rock band from Oklahoma City that started as a solo acoustic act of frontman/rhythm guitarist Bryan English in early 2009. All of us came from different musical backgrounds, with our current genre not one of them for any of us. Its an experimental approach that we enjoy!

Biography

In late 2008, frontman Bryan English decided to breakout from being a rhythm guitarist in the Christian Rock band, The Mark Ryan Band, to pursue his own, more laid back brand of music. Almost all of 2009 was spent writing and trying to find the right fit of other bandmates. In October of 2009, lead guitarist, Michael Shaw and Bryan became roommates and shared the same passion for music. They began jamming and playing the songs Bryan had been working on live as an acoustic duo. This caught the attention of drummer Kyle Klingman when they opened for his band, Rite On. Kyle and Bryan had also previously played together in the Mark Ryan Band years before. After recording some demo material, a copy found its way to the hands of bassist Carey Freeman, who inquired about the band need a bass. The first time playing together warranted nothing but ear-to-ear grins on all four of them. Chemistry is a beautiful thing.

The music drew upon influences from different genres of artists like:
Nick Drake
Bon Iver
Radiohead
John Mayer
Pink Floyd (pre-"the wall")
Iron & Wine
Bright Eyes

We really believe in the music we play, and play it with everything we have!
