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.
He carried on with his self-production efforts in late 2015 with his debut album Back to Orlando shortly after a 3-year stint living in southern California. After starting college back in Florida, Craddock converted his dorm-style apartment bedroom 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. Craddock then once again moved to southern California, this time as an adult. Unfortunately, he was forced to focus on making ends meet, which left very little time for creativity. Returning to Florida only four months after his move to California, Craddock began to work on music again... starting with the single Adult Thing (his last completely self-produced work to date). Months later he began working with a songwriting coach and recording drums and vocals at local Orlando studios. Craddock also 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 then led to them self-producing their new album Curtains. Shortly after drum tracking for the album was complete Charlie Bramuchi was added to the lineup as a guitarist.
