Maybe I'll fall into a trance and wake up in an ambulance


Mistakes Were Made is a groove metal band fronted by an intelligent hip-hop emcee. Different, yes; but Mistakes Were Made has proven to be a favorite in all circles opening up for such acts as iwrestledabearonce and Lil Wyte.

The journey began in 2009 when bassist Jen Hodges moved to Nashville upon graduating from Berklee. Jen wanted to write organic live instrument rap beats with metal influence, and thusly began a search for a rapper. She scoured craigslist her first week in town, and came upon vocalist Mike Parker's ad as a self described "acoustic hate rapper." Jen thought the ad comical, and decided to meet with Parker. The pair had a similar vision for their music and began writing/ searching for musicians. They finally found their drummer, Rashaun Davis, in 2010. The trio gigs and records with guitarist Matt Holden.

Rashaun lends his gospel background to the mix, providing in the pocket beats to Jen's funk influenced bass lines. Matt offers his knowledge of the fretboard to give the band it's edge. Parker tops off the group with highly syncopated verses, catchy hooks, and brutally honest lyrics about life, the man, and all the mistakes made in between.

The group just finished their first LP, and is in the process of pressing. The finished product will be available through www.facebook.com/mistakesweremade soon!

People are calling Mistakes Were Made a "refreshing change." Check out the EPK and read more about the band and what people are saying at www.sonicbids.com/mistakesweremade
