We've been labeled as an "acoustic/indie/folk" sounding band, but we like to say we're a combination of things. Think thunderstorm, symphony, love, stringed instruments, and the thoughts in our heads as best as we can express them.
We've been compared to Iron & Wine, The Hush Sound, and Regina Spektor.
Antimacassar spawned from the depths of the minuscule, corn field-strewn town lovingly known as Danville, Indiana. John Boyle III and Lauren Moore both attended the notorious Danville high school and were familiar with each other through the superb music and theater programs the school offered. It wasn’t until their early 20’s, though, that the two were united musically. One night, amidst a charming evening of pinot noir, chavrie, and “The Royal Tenenbaums”, the two conspired and wrote their first masterpiece. When played in front of their earliest audiences, it was noted that the talents each offered the other blended amazingly well. Johnny’s astonishing guitar playing was almost meant for Lauren’s makeshift and haunting melodies. From that day on the two began the journey now known as “Antimacassar”. They have played numerous coffee shop shows in the Indianapolis, Greenwood, and Valparaiso area, as well as played at a few colleges throughout Indiana. Yet, they are looking for more. Cappuccino machines aren’t normally in the same key as their music. More than anything, they want to bring their style of music to life and make sure as many people as possible hear it.
