About sweatshirt weather

West Lafayette, IN

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 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 and fetching bacon-wrapped hot dogs for Three6Mafia, 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 bandmates, started a long-distance musical collaboration to keep themselves from drowning in their daily drudgery. They began writing songs with the software Reason and used AOL Instant Messenger to send them back and forth until they 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. Soon after Chris and Daniel came together, they felt something was missing. Daniel called upon an old friend and former bandmate from high school. That friend was Nathanial, a talented multi-instrumentalist with flowing hair and dazzling eyes. He quickly jumped in to aid in the writing process and add a new dynamic to their live performance.

Now a complete band with their first EP released, Sweatshirt Weather is set to take on the world, one town at a time.
