Spawning from the jagged, green, and snow crusted mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho the founding members of Olin and the Moon came together at a young age and have played music of all kinds over the years. Singer/Songwriter David LaBrel along with his brother and lead guitarist Travis, joined forces with drummer Marshall Vore to create a strong bond and musical friendship. After moving to Los Angeles the boys met up with Brian McGinnis and Kyle Vicioso to create the final lineup of Olin and the Moon. After several years of writing, recording, and playing lots of booze-filled shows, the boys got back in the studio and recorded their newest album “Terrible Town”. The album, relesed in May 2009, is a poignant look at a small town band coming out to the big city, and showcases Olin and the Moon’s best material to date. Finally at a time when authenticity seems to be a thing of the past, Olin and the Moon bring together a rawness and passion in their music that can only be attributed to one too many beers and an endearing hope that a good song can cure even the worst hang over. Always busy, Olin and the Moon is putting the final touches on another full length album entitled “Footsteps” due out in October 2010. Perhaps the best record yet, “Footsteps” has already received licenses from CW’s hit show One Tree Hill even prior to being finished. Building on their already established style, Olin and the Moon continues to create fantastic songs and more and more people are catching on. “Really proficient alt‐country. Their set of soundtrack‐ready songs flowed surprisingly well – lead singer David LaBrel sounds a bit like Soul Asylum’s David Pirner, but the songs echo a liHle more Neil Young.” Lilleshan Bose – OC Weekly “This album’s like a beer. SomeOmes you cry in it; someOmes you raise your glass. While hardly starying from country formula, tugs at your heart like a prairie sunset.” Kevin Bronson – Buzz Bands
