Modeling their sound that is influenced by seemingly different styles ranging from classic and referential rock & roll to alternative and post-grunge inspirations, Self-Evident presents compound and hybrid themes that also display a sharp melodic sense.
Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, Self-Evident first assembled in 1997 with a three-piece lineup consisting of guitarist and vocalist Conrad Mach, bassist Tom Berg, and drummer Brian Heitzman. Playing numerous shows at local clubs, Self-Evident gained considerable recognition within the Minneapolis music scene, mostly due to their rousing and energizing performances. The trio then entered the studio to record its first demos shortly before signing a deal with Doom Nibler Records. What We Sound Like, the group's debut album, hit record stores in 2000, supporting their ever-growing notability. In 2001, the team recorded its second disc, the EP Direct. ~ Mario Mesquita Borges, Rovi
