The best kept secret in music

Still working on that hot first release.



Orlando's most-memorable indie rock band. Formed in 2016, the group began as a trio with lead guitarist Connor Smith, bassist Landon Woody, and drummer Shade Eversole. They began writing music in Connor's upstairs loft and appropriately called themselves, "The Loft." After befriending lead singer/guitarist Nick Cone and getting a new drummer Micah Baker, "The Loft" changed their handle to "Take Lead" after running into branding issues but still wanting to keep the "TL" in their name. The band forged their own catchy sound influenced by "Blink 182" and released a self-titled EP in 2017. After some success in the Orlando area, "Take Lead" took a hiatus and later reformed with original drummer Shade Eversole after attending a "Colony House" show together in November of 2018. The band found a new love for making music and developed a bright and memorable sound influenced by bands like "The 1975," "Hippo Campus," and "Young the Giant." The band labored intensively over their new music and released a single titled "Chosen" in March of 2019. After increasing their following and tour schedule, "Take Lead" released their new EP titled "Runaway" in September of 2019. They are continuing to write new music that influences and engages their followers and are embarking on their first out-of-state tour in December of 2019. ~Austin Nipper
