Once upon a time, there was a band called Sick/Sea who wrote songs about the countless lessons love teaches. Playing their music in the tropical climate of South Texas, they garnered a fan base who appreciated the unique style that mixed the band's influences of Indie, Jazz, Rock, and even a breath of Hardcore. Their songs are strung together by the powerful vocals and jazzy chord progressions of Audrey Scott, the swelling and crashing bass lines of Miguel Morales, and the dynamic drum beats of the singer's brother, Cameron Scott. The dedication of these three has enabled the band to release two EPs and embark on a successful East Coast tour. Now three years seasoned, they have buckled down to make music their long-time career.
Charlotte, North Carolina's Toleman Randall was born out of the rich pool of young musicians living in Cotswold in the early 1990's. They are an indie rock band fronted by guitarist/songwriter Grant Funderburk (Sea of Cortez, Jon Lindsay, Raised by Wolves and The Houstons). Grant Funderburk, original member and current songwriter and guitarist, revived the name in 2012. In its present form, Toleman Randall harnesses the musical talents and experiences of its members to produce their own brand of unique indie rock. Grant's songs rise to scientific themes like cosmic forces and and return to more earthly themes including love, loss, and relationships. Funderburk expresses these concepts in original songs with influences from Mark Knopfler, JJ Cale, and David Gilmore, to name a few. Grant, Kyle Dussault Carinelli (keyboards), John Licare (bass), and Charlie Heard (drums) have been members in other note worthy Queencity bands such as Sea of Cortez, Raised by Wolves, Abe Reid and The Spikedrivers, The Noises Ten, The Houstons, and The Virginia Reel.

Once upon a spring time in two thousand and ten, there was a boy named Israel who wrote music he didn't always like and he became good friends with another named Nick who just wanted someone to create something with. The End.
Following a DIY aesthetic, Sleigh started recording his lo-fi melodies on a Tascam 4-track recorder as cassette-only releases while living in Knoxville, TN in the mid 90's. He began releasing his newer albums on CD starting with 2001's 'The Microphone Riots' and has self-released 5 full length albums since. His latest, 'Wearing Out The Spring' (released November 13, 2012) was recorded at his home studio (Microphone Riots) now located in Charlotte, NC. It was mixed by the venerable Craig Schumacher (Wavelab Studios in Tucson, AZ) whom he had formed a relationship with while recording in other Phoenix-based bands.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Sleigh has recorded and performed in a number of bands including: Rum Tenor (Phoenix, AZ), ...And Guppies Eat Their Young/Tierra Del Fuego (Tempe, AZ), Juarez (Tempe, AZ), Campo Bravo (San Francisco, CA), Elvin (Chicago, IL), Sunshone Still (Columbia, SC), Elonzo (Charlotte, NC), The Old Invention (Charlotte, NC), The Adulterers (Charlotte, NC) and The Loudermilks (Charlotte, NC).
Over time, Sleigh's albums have evolved from stripped-down solo affairs to him welcoming a growing and rotating cast of musicians with each new release. Sleigh is currently playing with drummer Ian Willers (Royal Trux) as the 'Slow Fences'. They are gearing up for more local/regional shows and working on a 6th studio album.
