After high school, best friends Erik, Brian and Jory left Wisconsin to pursue film careers. Their cramped Los Angeles apartment spawned late-night muted jam sessions that put them on a new course. With their sights set on starting a band, they quickly scooped up Jeremy as their fourth best friend and drummer. And so they began their love lives as Gestures & Sounds.
Warmth in sound and lyrics is a given with these guys. From cozy and swooning to top-of-the-lungs raging. In tune with each other, the crowd, and anyone wearing flannel at any given moment in the world, G&S are equal parts melodically innovative and lyrically wrenching.
Blurring the ever-hazing line between visuals and music, they also conjure up their own video content. Talented filmmakers as well as musicians, G&S create all of their own music videos from start to finish. They’re in a venture all their own and offer an experience to anyone who appreciates a cut to the beat.
This LA for-peace four-piece released their debut album “Bill Nye Thinks We’re A Band” in Fall 2017 and love each other, full stop. It’s obvious from their outpour of electric silliness on stage. At the end of the day, all they want is for everyone to have a good time. And beer. Lots of beer.
