Eric was born in Greenwood, IN on August 17, 1976. He graduated from Franklin Community High School in 1995, Franklin College of Indiana in 1999, and Indiana University (MA- Philanthropic Studies) 2005. When not rocking out, he works as Director of Development for Little Red Door Cancer Agency in Indianapolis. He got into playing music in 2003, after, unlikely enough, being inspired by the movie Coyote Ugly! He immediately picked up a VHS video and Seagull guitar at a Guitar Center and taught himself to play. Eric lives in downtown Indianapolis.
Jeremy graduated from Frankfort Senior High School in 1993, Franklin College in 1997, and IU School of Law - Indy - 2004. He lives in Franklin, Indiana.
The two first met a long time ago while both employed at Applebee's - Jeremy with the much cooler post as a bartender, Eric the lowly server! They reconnected again after Jeremy moved to Oregon and then back again while out at the Willard in Franklin. They decided to start jamming out together and have now been at it for three years! They've played live at numerous places, including the Indiana State Museum, the Jukebox, the Willard, and Benjamin's Coffee Shop.
