Shawn O'Brien - Vocals/BadasseryThomas Buser - Lead GuitarWes Jenkins - Rhythm GuitarBrandon Lawrance - Bass/SynthJohnny Bay - Drums/MachineI myself, Shawn O'Brien and my boy Thomas Buser started this project almost half a year ago.
At first it was kind of a joke, we lived pretty far from each other but we knew we had something good going on here. The word "Underrated" perfectly defines us. Not very many people knew of us half a year ago.
We had released a couple of singles online and they sounded pretty good in other peoples opinions. When I decided that i was going to become a solo artist almost a year ago I had set up several different projects across the nation with many different people.
But none of those projects had topped "Above This". The name comes from the experience that one may face when dealing with rejection, misjudgment, or denial from his/her friends or family. When i first got kicked out of my first legit band almost 2 years ago i had told myself that would not join another band anytime soon and i have stuck to my word.
In my personal opinion, a band is a family. Friends are dedicated to work together to bring their talents to the table to make music for other bystanders to listen and enjoy and in the long run relate to the given lyrics.
But honestly they have to have a love for the music and what they do. In my experience i lacked those qualities. I was young, fresh in the game, and to be honest i just wanted to have fun. But this is a different game now.
All of us members in ABOVE THIS love this kind of music. Its what we grew up listening to. Now we just wanna give back to our communities and to the fellow friends and new people who listen to this music or may be introduced to this kind of music.
So sit back, shut up, quit the hating, and give our music a listen. I can guarantee you, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED
