Band of Horses
Band of Horses
Ben Bridwell (vocals, guitar) formed Band of Horses in 2004 after the break-up of his previous band, Carissa's Wierd, along with bassist Chris Early and drummer Tim Meinig. They were soon joined by former Carissa's Wierd bandleader Mat Brooke (guitar, vocals).[3] The band initially received attention from Sub Pop after opening for Iron & Wine during Seattle area shows. In 2005, the band released the Tour EP, which was sold at shows and on Sub Pop's website.
Jason Lytle
Jason Lytle
Jason Lytle first wandered into the public consciousness as the principal singer and
songwriter for the band Grandaddy. Formed in Modesto, CA in 1992, and eventually
consisting of Lytle along with Aaron Burtch, Tim Dryden, Jim Fairchild and Kevin
Garcia, the band initially broke through with 1997′s Under the Western Freeway and the
NME-praised single “Summer Here Kids.” The band’s sound,” atmospheric electronics
meet warped Americana”, crystallized on 2000′s Sophtware Slump, which was met
with breathless hype and earned the band “Next Big Thing” status. Tireless rounds of
international touring and mountains of fawning press led to 2003′s Sumday, increasing
album sales, more touring, more press,TV show appearances, and a slot on the main stage
at the Glastonbury festival. The band produced another EP and an album entitled Just
Like the Fambly Cat, before disbanding in 2006.

Since then, Jason has created music for a number of national and international
commercials and released his debut solo album Yours Truly, The Commuter in 2009.
A number of collaborations followed including two tracks with Danger Mouse and
Sparklehorse for the Dark Night of the Soul album and with former Grandaddy drummer
Aaron Burtch and Earlimart’s Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray in the Admiral Radley
project which yielded 2010’s I Heart California.

Jason currently lives in Montana, and enjoys hiking in woods, skateboarding in
skateparks, bicycling on anything, skiing on mountains, playing the piano in his living
room, and recording music, and occasionally playing shows. His second solo album
Dept. of Disappearance will be released in October 2012.
