Biography

Hello to all you listeners! Thanks so much for taking the time to let The Rendition serenade your ears with melodies you can’t help but want to sing along with, and beats that make you want to tap your feet. With their eclectic music style, their music places them in many different genres, indie, jazz, acoustic, pop rock. The Rendition has shared the stage with many local, regional, and national touring bands such as Emery, Skillet, Jonezetta, Josh Dies of Showbread, Flatfoot56, Bradley Hathaway, Everyday Sunday, Seabird, The Crossing, Between The Trees, The Fold, Deas Vail, Ruth, Surrogate, White Collar Sideshow, And Then There Were None, John Reuben, Capital Lights, Dan Evans, The Burial, Robbie Seay Band, Sarah Reeves, We Shot The Moon, Exit The Ordinary and more. The band came in 2nd Place in the 2008 Woodwind and Brasswind Battle of The Bands when they had only been together for 4 months. --- they show no sign of slowing down.

Discography

My Primer Suits Me So EP- 2009

Set List

We always do original stuff, on occassion we will pull out an Over the Rhine , Beetles, Queen, or Snow Patrol song and during Christmas we will arrange and perform our own style of classic Christmas tunes.

I play a lot of songs on the EPs, Moments Don't Last, Spiders, Twisters and Shadows and a fan favorite, that is a myspace exclusive, Lullaby.

I play sets anywhere from 20 min. to over 2 hours (again I will play over 2 hours of my original songs).
I jump back and forth from piano to guitar. I am always writting new music so I will play the new ones and play old ones on demand as well.
