Story behind your band/artist name: I'm from Darnestown, MD which is essentially the DC Suburbs. Everyone listened to modern music when I was growing up and I always like I was a bit of relic, born in the wrong time but alas! There is no story behind my band name because it's just my name. I'm a guy writing songs and doing the only thing I was ever good at, playing guitar!
Band Members: Jonathan Sloane - Guitar/vocals, Robbie Cooper - Bass/vocals, Deren Blessman - Drums, Wes Lanich - Keys
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Rockville, MD is home.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: We all play and work with many other musicians in the DMV. This is a passion project of mine and I've wanted to release a record of my original material that I have accumulated through the years.
