Ten Miles Wide
Ten Miles Wide
Hailing from a city with a storied history of groundbreaking music, Ten Miles Wide strives to direct the seattle rock sound into uncharted territory, Armed with an upbringing of groundbreaking music, the band is brimming with a passion to help resuscitate and advance the traditions brought on by the city's musical heroes. The goal is to genuinely and naturally recreate that magic and push it forward, all while staying unique and avoiding direct imitation. Galvanized by a decade's worth of experiences in their hometown music scene since their late teens, the band members have seen the excitement grow since they began as "The Mothership" in 2011. Due to changes and personnel in late 2014, a rebrand was imminent, and the band named themselves after their debut (Mothership) album in order to maintain connection with their previous works. Ten Miles Wide officially began in 2015 as a trio (John Beckman - vocals & guitars, Ryan Thornes - bass, Will Andrews - drums), and the band instantly sidestepped back into their routine, and continued to push forward with increased focus. Longtime friend Jake Carden (guitars) completed the lineup in 2016.
The Lymbs
The Lymbs
When searching for the purpose of any artistic endeavor, what you find may either be elusive, or blatantly obvious. The indie rock band The Lymbs seem to fit somewhere in the middle. Their songs differentiate in texture and form, but stay true to a theme fueled by their classic upbringing, and a love for the art. With the ability to pinpoint an artistic idea, and the skills to create environments of thought, The Lymbs say what they want while simultaneously questioning the listener. The band calls New Mexico home, but now resides in Oakland, CA, where they continue their search for artistic solace in the midst of their passion, and bear witness to the passion of others.
