Innocent Alex consists of Lake Jiroudek, Evan Jiroudek, and Marcus Högsta. It was formed in the summer of 2015 by Evan when he began writing songs after spending a few months in Athens, GA working on another project called Wistappear. He began writing an EP in Los Angeles and when he finished demoing it he went out to Oregon with Lake who was in New York at the time and Blake Baldwin who was coming from Los Angeles. The Brothers collaborated on the album and co-wrote the song 6 plus 6 plus 9. The EP was released in March 2017. “The EP wheedles its way into the cerebrum with its acoustic led soft palette which drifts the mind into a subconscious psychotropic trance” (Emerging Indie Bands). The EP was tracked and mixed by Evan and was mastered in Athens, GA with Jason Nesmith(Dirty Projectors, New Madrid, Fred Schneider, Clem Snide, a Pandora session for the Drive-By Truckers, and dozens more great local and national artists). Lake and Evan recently went back to Oregon in the winter of 2018 and tracked their new album which is co-written between the two of them. The album takes on a very different shape than the EP, being more inspired by the 70's rock'n'roll period. Influences such as Neil Young, The Band, John Lennon, and The Allman Brothers help shape the sound yet they add a twist of their own. They are currently in Los Angeles mixing the Debut Album which will be released in the summer of 2019.
The vibrant experimental rock quartet Snow Nerds has its roots in the Los Angeles improvised music scene. Their music is filled with devilish hooks, hard-hitting instrumental performances, thought-provoking compositions, and no shortage of absurdist humor. With Jake Sucher's playful guitar, Anna Butterss' adaptive bass, Ted Taforo's wild sax, and Jesse Quebbeman-Turley's sculptor-ly drumming, Snow Nerds dons the possibilty of a new positive energy in motion.
