Four 15-year-olds got together one spring break to see if they could write music. A year later, Tyler Centanni, Grahame Bywater, Sean Moore, & Nick Rounds released their first album - "Trials of Grahame". The songs were often silly and rarely well-rehearsed. It wasn't long before the band decided to try for a second musical outing, this time taking things seriously. With the addition of drummer Ethan Wilson, they recorded in five different locations across two years to create "Jam Theory". The album devoted roughly 20 minutes of material to each songwriter, creating a more balanced and constructed sound than its predecessor. A month after the final recording session ("Hourglass", recorded in one day in May), Bywater left town for the summer and Rounds/Centanni put together an acoustic duet. When Grahame returned, Nick & Tyler seemed content to carry on with their duet and the last 'session' occurred in Feb. 2009. Moore & Bywater planned to begin recording new material in June, but Bywater felt a difference in musical direction & started his own band, leaving only Moore. Sean is now working on a third album alone. "Lenny the Lemur" is a track from Moore's upcoming album, "In Search of Fresh Air". Ian Zalewski provided rhythm guitar.
