Biography

From Tinley Park, Illinois, Six Ways From Sunday began when Frank and Tim met during their sophomore year of high school in 2001, they hated each other. Once they discovered their mutual love of music, however, everything changed, and the two formed a friendship bordering on brotherhood. They became even closer once Tim started dating Frank’s sister. Back in those days they called their band Absent Minded, and though they wouldn’t play a gig for 4 more years, they had fun jamming in Frank’s garage and dreaming of becoming famous.

Their dreams almost died, though, once they graduated from high school in 2004. The best friends had a tough falling out, and didn’t speak to each other for several months. Luckily their friendship was too strong to fade, and eventually they reconciled their differences.

In 2005 they changed the band name to Six Ways From Sunday, which they trademarked soon after, and began recording their album in earnest, writing over 20 songs in less than 3 years. With Frank writing the music and Tim writing the lyrics, their songs amazed their friends and family, who soon began demanding a Six Ways From Sunday CD. In 2006, they played their first gig at Ashbury’s Coffee House.

That gig was to be the first of many they played in the Tinley Park area. It was difficult for them, however, to find skilled musicians to perform with them who meshed with the band both musically and on a personal level. After discarding a drummer, a lead singer, and several guitarists, they took a break from playing gigs and focused on recording their debut album, Long Road Ahead, which will come out in mid 2008.

In the beginning of that same year, Frank and Tim finally found the rest of their band. Frank met with drummer Brian Herman through a friend,and they immediately hit off the relationship. Though they have been through a handful of guitarist, they are the fundamentals of the current Six Ways and are in search for those perfect musicians to fill the void.

Over the years they developed a style of rock that is uniquely theirs, though they take inspiration from bands like Shinedown, Metallica, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback, and the Foo Fighters. They started out with a much lighter sound, with songs like “What If,” which is actually more of a love ballad, though their fans still request it at every gig. As the lyrics have become more insightful, the music has become progressively more complex, resulting in songs like “Blind”, which is an angrier, more in depth look at life.
