Sometimes Blind is an alternative rock back that formed during a living room jam night in Springfield, Oregon in the early months of 2017.
Dan Van Ordstrand and Garrett Johnson were invited to play at their friend Gary Reed's house, where Casey Martin was also participating. Dan played some of his songs that had been written with Garrett in their previous band, The Balloon Room, and Casey had asked to sing the songs since Dan's voice was giving way to a minor throat ailment. The jam night proved to have an impact on all four musicians, as they all agreed to continue to get together and play through the songs. Soon after, Garrett's wife, Katie (also the sister of Casey), asked to join on piano and backing vocals, and Josh Laughlin was asked by Garrett to play bass. With an initial line up of songs written by Dan and Garrett during the Balloon Room years, the band began to rehearse weekly, growing their set list and recording a seven song EP, which was launched on their website on August 1st, 2017.
To date, the band consists of Dan Van Ordstrand on rhythm guitar, Garrett Johnson on drums, Casey Martin on lead vocals, Katie Johnson on backing vocals and piano, Josh Laughlin on bass, and Matthew Goad on lead guitar. Gary Reed officially stepped back from the band in December 2017, and Matthew joined shortly thereafter.<br>
