Biography

The beginning of Second Self occured in Fallston, MD, where Stampone and Hunter brothers were raised. After only a few jam sessions in spring of 2003, the trio began to write material and develop a sound.

The band's first big show came along at the same time a new member was added. Walsh joined the band on stage for a serendipitious show at the Recher Theatre in Towson, MD to open for local sensation The Low Life. Ever since, the band has played many venues in the Maryland/ Pennsylvania area, including 9:30 Club, Fletcher's, Rams Head Live!, Full Moon Saloon, Brew River, The Monkey Barrell, Murph's Other Bar, Chameleon Club, to name a few.

The most recent addition to the band is with Dave Thomas. Adding more vocals and another guitar into the mix, the band has expanded their sound with more elements and musical influences. The entire band except for Stampone has graduated from or is currently enrolled at York College of Pennsylvania. The temporary shift in geography has made the York venue Murph's Other Bar the 'home away from home,' where they continue to hone their live craft.
