Supporting Acts: Thomas Wynn & the Believers Smoke Signals
Coley O'Toole and Joe Ballaro started their first band in the 7th grade in Shelton, Connecticut. They honed their skills as musicians, vocalists and songwriters by playing together daily. Coley met Zac Clark over a decade later, when Zac moved into a river house on the banks of the Housatonic with Joe. The three toured as The Queen Killing Kings. In early 2011, the three journeyed to Silverlake, California where Simon Katz (Youngblood Hawke) and Christian Letts (Edward Sharpe) awaited their arrival at the Effie House- a home equipped with, among other items, several recording consoles, a Steinway baby grand, two dozen guitars, a Hammond organ, and a ghost. The band brought more than 30 songs, out of which one was chosen each day to arrange, record and mix. The 9 songs that comprise the band's debut self titled LP, "Smoke Signals," were recorded live, in the living room, in the span of 9 days.
