The year was 2008. At the ripe age of twenty, Chris was pursuing a college degree at Purdue University with hopes of finally entering the glamorous world of cubicles, hour-long commutes and water cooler gossip.
Daniel, also at the tender age of twenty, had just moved to Los Angeles with plans of working at a recording studio. After long hours of scrubbing toilets for Mariah Carey, fetching bacon-wrapped hot dogs for Three6Mafia and buying scented candles to ease JLo's inspirational process, Daniel decided that there was more to life than serving virgin strawberry daiquiris to The Jonas Brothers.
Chris and Daniel, high school friends and former band mates, started a long-distance musical collaboration to keep themselves from drowning in their daily drudgery. They sent their songs back and forth using the most advanced modern technology (AOL Instant Messenger & Reason 4.0) until their songs were complete.
Cue 2009. Chris and Daniel realized that they had deprived the world of their musical creations long enough. Daniel quit his job, packed up everything he held dear and moved back to Indiana. There, he and Chris rented a house and began work on their debut EP, With High Hopes. Around this time, they decided they needed to put together a full band to enhance their live performance and writing dynamic.
While in the search of a drummer, Chris and Daniel went on a spontaneous journey to the distant land of New Jersey to visit Daniel's old college buddy, and coincidentally, a drummer. After spending a week with Ryan, they realized he was the perfect fit for Sweatshirt Weather.
With the last piece to the puzzle still missing, Daniel again called on an old friend. Nathanial, a talented multi-instrumentalist with flowing hair and dazzling eyes, was the chosen one to hold down the rhythm and groove, playing the bass guitar.
Now a complete band with their first EP released, Sweatshirt Weather is set to take on the world, one town at a time.
