Bio

West Virginia-based indie rockers, THE WEIGHT, are taking the indie rock scene by storm. The band formed in 2013 when Adam DeGraff, a renowned violinist teamed up with vocalist Morgan Cornwell to experiment in the studio. The duo attracted the attention of drummer Billy Ayers and bassist Stuart Hill, who signed on to solidify the bands signature southern indie rock sound.

Since their formation, THE WEIGHT has been quietly crafting their revolutionary sound and piecing together their live show, an experience that DeGraff describes as a nonstop roller-coaster ride of energy between the band members and audience. In the summer of 2013, THE WEIGHT began campaigning to raise funds via Kickstarter to fund their debut EP "At First". Their project caught industry attention and their goal was quickly met and exceeded by 300%. The EP, which dropped in August of 2013.

Armed with Cornwells brazen vocals, DeGraff's radical fiddle playing, catchy grooves, and feel good tones, THE WEIGHT is onto something that the industry has yet to experience.
