Gardeners Logic started out as the solo project of Ian Bailey back in 2008. Two demos were recorded with Mike Willson in his home studio. They were never released. The project took a back seat while Ian joined The Counter Regiment with Mike Willson and Gary Westmoreland. The band gave it a go for three years before deciding to focus more on production and engineering. The three of them opened up Music and Arts Production Studio (MAPS) in Huntington Beach, CA. All along Ian was writing and recording as Gardeners Logic on his laptop. During the winter of 2011 the project inevitably found it’s way out of the bedroom and into the studio where Mike Willson joined the project on drums as well as producer for the first self titled release. Gardeners Logic broke free on the web June 3rd of 2012. The players on the record consisted of friends and local talent including Gary Westmoreland, Chris Rushman, Nate Lown, and Liliana Frandsen, just to name a few. The live band soon took shape with a large rotating line up of friends such as Jimmy Hua (Big Monsta), Gary Westmoreland, Garrett Richenbauch, and Russell Osborne (Those Guys). The band played with anywhere from 5 to 7 players making every show a rowdy and unique experience. After a residency at Costa Mesa’s Detroit Bar they caught the eye of Vince Phung (Sound Engineer, Multi-instrumentalist, producer) who soon took on the role as one of the bands guitarists. After a slew of Local shows the band found it’s niche as a four piece. The line up was Ian Bailey, Mike Willson, Vince Phung, and depending on the date Collin Breedlove or Chris Booke (Swing Cats Big Band, Session Player) on bass. During January of 2013 the band hit the road for a two week west coast tour. The band has since been back in the studio with the line up of Ian Bailey, Mike Willson, and Vince Phung. They currently have the monday night residency for the month of april leading up to their EP release show. They are currently finishing their second release titled “The La Habra EP” that will be released in physical and digital formats on April 29th, 2013. They will tour with Big Monsta June of 2013 in support of both their releases “Gardeners Logic” and “The La Habra EP”.
