Biography

SOMEBODY & THE SOMETHINGS are not just anybody. A trio from Birmingham, Alabama, Steven Lane, Harry Miree, and Jim "Jambone" Cunningham are each simultaneously and interchangeably Somebody & The Somethings. The idea of a band was first entertained by the three in a nineth grade English class. The band assumed a number of identitites throughout high school while performing at parties and a few charitable events. In March of 2007, their senior year of high school, the band performed as The Ape Invaders while opening for Sister Hazel at a sold out show at Birmingham's Sloss Furnaces. With college came new responsibilities and interests. With Jim away at school, Harry and Steve both agreed to continue playing, but merely for fun. As time progressed, and Steve and Harry began to write and record new material, they felt compelled to once again seriously pursue the band. Steve, Harry, and Jim reunited as Somebody and the Somethings with Steven Lane on guitar and vocals, Harry Miree on drums, and Jim "Jambone" Cunningham on bass guitar. Having come a long way since 9th grade English class, Somebody & The Somethings have been crafting and perfecting new material in studio for their latest album White Lies. Their recent work could be described as pop folk rock inspired by greats such as The Beatles and Bob Dylan, but with a modern sound reflective of their times, and reminiscient of acts like Blue Mountain, The Jayhawks, and The Boy Least Likely To. With their debut album, Somebody & The Somethings hope to leave listeners with a renewed sense of hope for an uncertain future. Such a lofty goal is probably unattainable by one band, but still worth shooting for. One thing is for certain, Somebody & The Somethings are a band worth checking out.
