A California three-piece that has taken the sound of classic power pop and coaxed it into the 21st century, Everybody Else feature Carrick Moore Gerety on guitar and lead vocals, Austin James Williams III on bass and vocals, and Mikey McCormack on drums, vocals, and sometimes keyboards. Named for the classic Kinks song "I'm Not Like Everybody Else," the group traces its beginnings to the meeting of Gerety and McCormack after each had moved to Los Angeles. Gerety had come to California from Massachusetts with his band, the Push Kings, while McCormack's group, the Waking Hours, had decided to give the West Coast a try after establishing themselves in Virginia. Their two bands didn't fare well in Los Angeles, but Gerety and McCormack quickly struck up a friendship and working relationship, and decided to put together a power trio.
The Story of Baywood
In late 2010, fate came a-knocking for Joe Ginsberg and Jarrad Kritzstein - two young Eastside gentlemen filled to the brim with creativity, talent, and facial hair. The pair were instant friends and considered the possibility of a “separated at birth” hospital error as all took note that they could be in the same police line-up with their dark Jewish locks, black rimmed glasses, and extensive wardrobe of flannel shirts. Perhaps their connection was brought on by a shared ability to pluck away at virtually any instrument under the sun. Maybe it was their shared love of Australian accents. Regardless of the cause, both fellows felt gratitude in finding a brand new partner in crime.
Some people say when you meet your true doppleganger, the universe explodes. Luckily, this didn’t happen. Instead Jarrad and Joe began a darling bromance and bonded over music, whiskey, girls, and heartbreak. While playing in Audra Mae's band, The Almighty Sound, and becoming a big, happy Silverlake family, Jarrad and Joe quickly ascended to a new level of communication thanks to some kind of shared-brain connection. It was a coded language consisting primarily of abbreviations, catchphrases, and hashtags. Verbal chatter led to music chatter so under Audra’s encouragement, Joe shared some old garage band recordings with Jarrad that he had left unattended over the last year. After a quick listen in a room conveniently filled with acoustic instruments, they finished their first song “I Can Breathe Again” in just a few hours.
With inspiration so thick from wounded hearts and the buzz of meeting their creative matches, the two proceeded to write and record 5 songs in 5 hangs. They passed their music to friends and family only to receive rave reviews and inquiries as to what the band was called and when they’d be sharing their creations with the public. After some brief telepathic Jarrad-to-Joe communication they agreed it was time to become a band. As they stood on Jarrad’s front stoop contemplating what to call themselves, they reflected on all the great times they’d had on Baywood street, home of Jarrad’s studio and all their recording sessions. The name Baywood... yeahBAYWOOD... stuck for all the positivity and creative energy it brought the pair, and a brand new earthy, acoustic, folk pop band was born.
Ertel is a trio of musicians who met in Los Angeles in 2010.
Abbe Ertel Magid hails from Chicago; she wails hardcore, sings softly and has jokes for days. The party, in short, does not stop.
Greg Camphire is a Pennsylvania kid; he plays drums and percussion with influences that range far and wide. He brings together an eclectic mix of beats so strong they might take hold of your heartstrings.
Matt Bridges was raised in Texas; he strums a mean guitar and programs majestic noise through a laptop computer. But don't be fooled, he can get real soulful real fast.
File them under rock n' roll and all of its relatives: blues, soul, R&B, punk, dubstep and whatever else you hear.
