The Spacies was formed in 2012 by Washington D.C. natives, David Cook and Ross Lara. As songwriters and producers they had met and collaborated years prior within their local music scene.
They quickly became the best of friends after not only bonding over their love of music, but also their mutual passion for adventure sports, Mother Nature, and the great outdoors. Ross and David share a vision for pushing the limits of music creation by incorporating their adventure driven outdoor activities into their creative process. Not only do they pull their inspiration for their music from their favorite hobbies, such as snowmobiling in the back country, surfing, and downhill mountain biking, but they literally capture the sounds they find along the way and implement them into the music itself. It’s not unusual for The Spacies to feature a snowmobile engine as part of a bass line, or to find them tracking their vocals outdoors on top of a 14,000 foot summit in Colorado or Canada. It’s this creative process that truly defines The Spacies.
