Bio

THE ONLY... the coolest new sound in Pop/Rock. 2010 saw DC area singer/songwriter/rock keyboardist Gabe White team up with guitarist Nate Dellinger, bassist Christian Mikkelsen and drummer Bobby Spencer to form THE ONLY. With killer hooks and heartfelt lyrics, THE ONLY emerged as one of the freshest sounds in pop/rock. Their first concert was winning the GMU battle of the bands - one week later they opened for national recording stars "Plain White Tees". They never looked back.

White's venerable keyboard talent is reminiscent of 70's-rock-giants-meets-contemporary-pop-feel, while he superbly handles front man duties. Dellinger's guitar sounds are a great mix of rock history creating very lush and crisp voicings. Bassist Mikkelsen sets the grove and never wavers except to lay down some really kicking turnarounds. Spencer melds it all together on drums and THE ONLY puts out a huge sound complimenting their part brit-rock/ameri-pop style. The songs are awesome on CD - and even better live.

Influences include U2, Killers, Coldplay, Mumford and Sons, Keith Emerson, Atomic Tom, Holst, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, The Clash, NOFX, Bad Religion, Against Me!, MXPX, Iron and Wine, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Zero 7, The National, Keane, Imogen Heap...
