Originated in Columbus, Ohio in early 2016, Overgrow began as the solo project of singer/guitarist Jake Ciccotelli.
A side project in its early days, Overgrow functioned as Ciccotelli’s outlet for all of the facets of life that were difficult to vocalize traditionally. In late 2017, after the breakup of his previous band, Overgrow entered a period of reinvention, in which the debut EP The House You Made was written - this time with a full-band delivery. The release primarily touches on grieving the loss of Ciccotelli’s late father, who had passed away suddenly in October of 2017. The release also tackles themes of self-criticism, and taking charge of one’s own mental health.
