Bio

The Pink Snowflakes started out in the brain of Andy Rossi in the basement of his parent’s house in Michigan. Upon relocating to Portland, Oregon, the idea grew via 4-track tapes and eventually coalesced in a vague nebula of random musicians.

Simple guitar songs with layers of odd vocals and other noises shaped the psychedelic imagery. The first few line-ups helped the direction, but it wasn't the potent glue that held it all together. Demo recordings were made, featuring "The Icicle Princess Song" and an EP with "Gas Station In the Sky" and "When I'm Looking At You." By the summer of 2005, an early attempt at some songs for the then-untitled album "Sun Chasing" were made and then set aside.

Uncertain what the future would hold for the Snowflakes, Rossi was on his own again - writing more material and gathering more gadgets and effects. Tom McGregor showed up one day and the two began playing shows a day after meeting. Andy and Tom both discovered something unique in the massive walls of sounds they created. After a few months of singing into layers of delays,noise and chaos, they needed an anchor for the wall of sound. Dan Groth answered an ad and fit in almost immediately.

During the next six months, the band would employ three drummers and tour around the northwest with their explosive live set of dynamic, drugged-out, psych rock whimsy. Songs were written, completed, and re-arranged, but they still had not found the right drummer.

During a break in the schedule, Dan attended a “We’re From Japan” show at Portland’s Doug Fir. During the set, it was announced that this would be the drummer’s final performance with the band. Dan seized the opportunity and convinced Scott Smith that The Pink Snowflakes would be a perfect fit. After one rehearsal, everyone agreed that Scott made everything complete!

During the next two weeks, the band rehearsed and helped build Red Lantern Studios in North East Portland and began tracking on June 20, 20xx. The band created "Sun Chasing..the last exploding echoes" in an attempt to try "everything" they possibly could in a short amount of time. Some far out ideas were scrapped for later.

Currently, the band has expanded its sound with new bass player MJ Woodis, new lead guitarist Craig Cox and synth/sample/visual fx captain Rick StiltWalker.

The band has played to enthusiastic audiences up and down the west coast and the western half of the USA, opening for such national acts as The Black Angels, The Upsidedown, The Dilettantes, The Quarter After, the Von Bondies and Crystal Antlers.
