From their debut on, all Posse's members kept their day jobs, which remained as important to them as the band was. All three members attended university in Washington State, with Wittmann-Todd becoming an electrical engineer, Maxim a graphic designer, and Salzmen a therapist for autistic children.
Despite their work commitments, the band forged ahead with their sophomore effort in true D.I.Y. style (Soft Opening was recorded in the basement of Maxim's house, and she also created the artwork for the album). Their sophomore record came out in 2014, and marked the first release on the band's own Beating a Dead Horse label. Their respective career obligations limited touring to a handful of shows in Seattle, but the record was picked up by prominent online sites for review, which brought the band a larger audience. Despite the increased recognition, Posse ostensibly lay dormant for the next couple of years leading to speculation that they had broken up. However, 2016 saw the release of 7" "Perfect H," and the band returned the following year with the single "Kismet." Posse released the six-track Horse Blanket as a free download in November 2017 -- claiming it would be their final recording as a band -- and produced an accompanying comic for fans to buy. ~ Bekki Bemrose, Rovi
