"Sycamore at LAMA"

A local band had made a distinct impression on the recording industry. Local band Sycamore has been honored for their latest recording effort with a nomination for a Los Angeles Music Award (LAMA). LAMA is an awards show for independent bands and musical acts from across the country. Thousands of artists submitted their material for consideration, but only a few have received the highly coveted nominations. Sycamore was nominated for best song in the Rock category.

Sycamore will be playing a showcase for LAMA judges and industry insiders on May 30th at The Gig Hollywood in Hollywood, CA. The showcase will give the band an opportunity to show that their recording talents are matched by an equally impressive live show. If the band does well in the showcase, they will have the opportunity to play live on national television when the LAMA show airs in October.

"Sycamore Rocks Hoover's Live"

Sycamore, a band from San Luis Obispo, rocked the house last night at Hoover’s Live. The band, including members Ryan Murray, Evan Fox, Nick Bachmeier, and Evan Bayless took the stage after local openers DC Hotel, and played to a packed house. The music was almost entirely original and brought back memories of early ‘90s Grunge Rock. Those in attendance were treated to an exciting show that kept consistent quality and intensity. - Atascadero News

We make music that we love, and just want to share it with as many people as possible. Music is our lives, and our passion - that is what connects us with the world.

Many people ask how Sycamore got their name. “It was fate,” recalls Ryan, the band’s front man. Ryan, along with lead guitarist Evan Fox, had been playing music together for years, but their former band had fallen apart, and they were trying to put the pieces back together. The first addition to the new band was bassist Nick Bachmeier. Nick was classically trained in several string instruments, but he had never played bass before getting together with Evan and Ryan to make music. Fortunately, Nick was a quick learner, and he was able to play all of their songs after just a few practices. With the band almost complete, Evan, Ryan, and Nick set out to find a drummer. After relentless searching and numerous auditions, Evan Bayless came into the picture. Evan Bayless, or Ebay (as he is known in the band) brought a new level of musicianship to the group and solidified the line up. Eager to have their music heard, the foursome entered the studio to record a demo - that is where fate stepped in. The band had been recording on a farm in the middle of nowhere. They had several songs done, but still didn’t have a name. “One day we were walking outside the studio when we saw this sycamore tree. The tree was huge, it must have been 100 years old.” The guys knew something about this tree was special. In a storm, the trunk had broken in half and the tree had fallen. The collapsed tree had taken root and was growing again. “For us, the tree really symbolized the band. We had fallen apart, but now we were coming back to life.” That day, Sycamore was born. After perfecting their live show, Sycamore is poised to take the rock scene by storm. The band has been quickly gaining momentum, and the world will soon take notice. With catchy hooks, hard hitting rhythms, and flowing melodies, Sycamore is gaining more fans every day – and they don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
