Biography

Remington is a New York City based power trio (guitar/vocals, bass/vocals, drums) named after the late, Chicago based pianist/trombonist, David Remington. Remington began in 2003 when Mike Thurber (bass/vocals) and Ross Mintzer (guitar/vocals) first met while attending the Interlochen Arts Academy where they were studying double bass and saxophone respectively. Immediately sensing a unique musical chemistry, the two began to perform at concerts halls across the country. In 2005, they moved to New York City to continue their music studies at The Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of music. It was there during their first year in the city that they met Greg Evans (drums) who was also a student at Manhattan School of Music. Once again, a phenomenal connection was made. With Greg, the group dynamic was completed, and Remington in its current day form was born.
Remington has released two recordings, "Songs For Our Friends EP"(2006), and "Thank You Mr. Remington..."(2007). Whether in group form, or individually, Remington has performed with artists such as Chick Corea, Bela Fleck, Russell Batiste, Eric Marienthal, Peter Erskine, Twilight Sad, Jennifer Sanon, and Jonathan Batiste at colleges and venues such as Carnegie Hall, Disney Recital Hall Los Angeles, The Blind Pig (MI), Castaways (NY), and The Bowery Poetry Club (NYC).
Musically, the group pulls from a large and eclectic span of sounds. Influenced by artists like Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, Daft Punk, Jimi Henrix, and Kings of Leon, Remington plays an original rock sound that acknowledges the rich history of western music that has come before it. The strongly individual sound and unique life perspective that each member brings to the table through their respective instrument creates a focused, yet spontaneous sound that is rich with energy and emotion. With its "Heart Hand" logo as its shield, the bittersweet emotions of daily life as inspiration, and music as its voice, Remington works hard day and night to make the best product it can, and ultimately, to become a powerful voice in both art and society.

Lyrics

We're Gonna Make It After All

Written By: Remington

Bombs in the air explode
from tiny planes that we pay to go
overseas into a land unknown
in an attempt to try and gain control

but I don't care
that's my brother over there
he's in his plane
flying in the air
and wha tcna you do
when you got to pay your rent
got a family to feed
a country to protect

(2x)we are, we, we, we are
gonna make it after all

Trust what you feel inside
War is a war its not always right
here we stand letting time decide
its up to us to make it right

but I don't care
that's my brother over there
he's in his plane
flying in the air
and wha tcna you do
when you got to pay your rent
got a family to feed
a country to protect

(2x)we are, we, we, we are
gonna make it after all
