Lyle Roberson, Michael Thomson and Justin Lee first met playing at open mics in the Asheville area. After performing at several open mics and listening to each others original material and takes on mutually liked covers, they began to collaborate and formed a band in February of 2007. Naming the band Effen A, they started playing cover tunes by groups such as, Radiohead, Ween, Nirvana, AC/DC and The Pixies to name a few. After playing some small shows and events as a cover band and cycling through a number of drummers they took time to start focusing more on writing their original material.

In January of 2008 Justin met Eric Anderson through some mutual friends. The four hit it off in the first practice session and Eric joined the group that same month. Now with the line-up complete, Effen A was writing, recoding and performing full force during the spring of 2008. They created a catalog of 20 complete original songs, recorded several demos with their friends at Hill Creek Studios and played numerous gigs through out the spring and summer months. Such venues included The Garage At Biltmore, Hannah Flanagan’s, The Westville Pub, Fred’s Speakeasy and The Orange Peel (which has hosted performances by Smashing Pumpkins, My Morning Jacket and Ben Harper.

The band began to polish down their sound and their image. Everyone invested in better equipment, songs that didn’t fit were given a different approach or cut from the list and the name changed from Effen A to Static Peak. There were many reasons for the name change but all the members agreed that Static Peak represented their sound better and was more appealing to a broader audience. The name change proved effective and the group is still bringing a strong live performance to date. Static Peak has shared the stage with international acts like Cross Canadian Ragweed and local talents such as Analog Moon, Darpa, Lamb Handler and Josh Roberts and The Hinges.
