What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Ashburn, Virginia (Doug and James) & Walkersville, Maryland (Jamie)
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: James and Doug went to elementary school together and have been playing with Jamie for 5 years after meeting her at a songwriter's showcase at Ebenezer's in DC in 2010.
Doug and James have played in numerous other bands together before Throwing Plates, including their first trio 'Stone Collective' in addition to multiple ska bands, and Jamie currently also performs occasionally with DC-based mod band, Go-Mod-Go!, as well as the DC-based big band swing band, Radio Kind Orchestra and the Pin Curl Girls.
Due to recording and then re-recording the debut album, it took us about two years from start to finish to get this album done.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Mark Williams is the man. He's a producer based in Bethesda, MD who took us under his wing and helped us do this album the right way. We couldn't be more proud of this album, and a lot of that is because of what Mark has done for us.
