Despite their luminous sound, the notion of The Notionaries came about in 2014 on a dark and cold January night in downtown Oklahoma City, within the walls of a popular music venue among local artists. In these wee hours of the morning, Lamar Fite and Logan Rine engaged in a candid conversation that clarified their life ambitions and long-term goals as musicians. Thus began The Notionaries, a group of millennial artists committed to embracing freedom and creativity through music.
The first professional tracks belonging to The Notionaries were recorded in the spring of 2014, with the help of Dustin Burnett in Nashville, best known for his contributions to the likes of Augustana, Dave Barnes, the Newsboys, and Darren King of Mutemath.
The Notionaries pay close attention to their lyrics, which display a sense of confidence and thoughtful empowerment. Their fresh, courageous message offers listeners the will to overcome trials and live in freedom.
It’s the kind of music that illuminates your day. You’ll want to hear it while driving down the highway with your car windows down, wearing your shades and tapping the steering wheel. No matter how cloudy, cold or stormy the day is, the Notionaries will always make you feel like its summer.
