So Many Wizards started out in 2009 as the dreamy indie solo project of Long Beach, California, musician Nima Kazerouni.
In its beginning phases, the band's shows consisted of Kazerouni performing in front of television sets stacked on top of each other, playing synced-up backing tracks. During this time, the Tree EP was released, an eight-song mini-album of bedroom pop packaged in handcrafted covers. Kazerouni was soon joined by drummer Erik Felix and the pair recorded the Love Songs for When You Leave Me EP. Bassist Warren Woodward filled out the lineup, and the trio began playing often in Southern California, eventually touring nationally and internationally. In 2011 their Inner City/Best Friends 7" was released and Woodward left the band. L.A. musicians Geoff Geis and Melody Carillo stepped in upon Woodward's exit and the band's proper full-length debut, Warm Nothing, arrived in 2012. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
