More or Less
Some Random Band It's difficult to classify Some Random Band. They have been called Modern Rock, Alternative Rock, Pop Punk, Classic Rock or even Adult Contemporary. The reality is that Some Random Band just can't be contained by one conventional genre. Instead the band is working to blend a Modern Rock style with Classic Rock elements. For SRB, it's all about having a unique sound, one marked by a young, current and modern style but also includes more "classic" influences like bridges, solos and layered arrangements. Bob Dylan, Third Eye Blind, Boston, Counting Crows, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, the Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox 20 are just a few of the artists SRB credits with influencing their style and sound. The band formed initially in 2004 by Paul Hummel (lead vocals, guitar) and Brandon Fuelling (lead guitar, bg vocals) in order to participate in a Battle of the Bands. When asked the name of their band, the guys stared at each other blankly until Paul finally said, "we're just some random band." Thusly, Some Random Band was born. SRB went through various personnel adjustments before they were finally introduced to drummer Mitch Nelson. Shortly thereafter, Brandon reunited with old friend and now bassist Zach Flower. Zach completed the band's lineup and completed the circuit of influence and inspiration that would flow through each band member and make them into the songwriting entity that they have become. Today the band continues to mature and hone their musical skills. SRB writes all of their own songs and each member has contributed to the body of work that is More or Less, their debut CD (2007, Some Random Band). Some Random Band is fresh, modern rock with "classic rock sensibilities". Beautiful melodies, intricate songwriting and arrangement, soulful, heartfelt lyrics about life, love and the pursuit of happiness and good, old fashioned guitar shredding. SRB is a fresh, young band with a musical maturity beyond their years, bringing the "classic" back to rock." Some Random Band is currently playing the Denver club circuit and preparing for regional tours.
