Shreeps and Luner started OWTB after having met at the Atlanta Institute of Music. "We were both in the guitar program and we just clicked", says singer/guitarist Shreeps, "Then the songwriting bug caught us and the band took priority over just being guitar players. So somehow in the end we ended up having a need for a lead guitar player!" It was during that time that Luner had switched to bass guitar while Shreeps' was spending more time focusing on his natural passions: singing and songwriting. "We spent hours, man, just writing and playing. Eventually the songs settled into something where we knew we needed other good musicians around to fill out our sound," describes Luner. The two found a perfect musical match in Rod Breland, whose fusion rock drumming adds creative flair to OWTB’s sound. After extensive auditioning, the puzzle was complete with the addition of fellow AIM-alum guitarist Lyle Kilgore. “It was difficult to find a guitar player with the right combination of chops and creativity for our style,” according to Shreeps, “but Lyle fits the bill perfectly…his style is somewhere between Jimmy Page and Jimmy Herring.”
The OWTB sound is a perfect recipe of rock and singer/songwriting with a dash of jam band. Their music reminds me of a cookie that’s been pulled out of the oven at just the right time. You know, the best of both worlds---not too hard, not too soft. That’s not to say that OWTB straddles the line between hard and soft rock (it’s more, say, dynamic art rock), but that even within each song, there’s marked emphasis on song construction, transitions, and dynamics. The song themselves (Queen of Make Believe, Sunlight Setting) are exciting miniature rollercoasters as the band dynamically dips and weaves between verses, choruses, bridges, and outros effortlessly. The fact that they’re all strong musicians is like a glass of cold milk to wash it all down. The obvious risk therein is for them to show musical restraint. The band is at its very best when their strengths as musicians shows off their real strengths----memorable songs, thought-evoking lyrics, well-crafted compositions (and then springboard into the improvisational jams to electrify their live performance). If OWTB perfects that recipe, you should expect to see a long and promising future.
