Miramar Drive started in early 2014 as a solo project by Orlando, Florida based singer/songwriter Jacob Craddock with the release of Letters to Life, which was self-produced in his bedroom at age 15.
Every release from Miramar Drive has been produced by Craddock. His 2015 debut album Back to Orlando came to be after an unhappy 3-year stint living in Newport Beach, CA. After graduating high school and starting college back in Florida, Craddock converted his dorm into his new home studio. There he recorded the Be Alive - EP, which sonically toned down his aggressive punk rock roots and relied more on uplifting lyrical content and mellow, atmospheric guitars. A few months after the release, Craddock once again moved to Southern California... this time as an adult. Being forced to focus on making ends meet led to very little creative output, and thus brought him back to Orlando, Florida after only 3 months. Upon returning, Craddock began to work on music again starting with the single Adult Thing (the last release to have Craddock handle all instrument and vocal duties). No longer happy with the process of being a solo artist, Craddock recruited two friends to handle drum and bass duties. Jack Bramuchi on drums and Micah Rojas on bass. They began by releasing the singles Slow Down & Afterthought, which ultimately led to them self-producing their latest album Curtains. Shortly after drums were recorded for the album, Charlie Bramuchi was added to the lineup as lead guitarist.
