The four man group out of San Diego CA, the Broken Stems, released their debut EP We Are Home in October 2013. The group members are Jesse Gawlik (Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist) Nathan Walsh-Haines (drummer/singer), Devon Stoll (bassist/singer), and Brad Sweet (keyboard/vocals).
The EP is hard to classify, it is a mixture of several different styles, a little rock, a little blues and a touch of reggae all added together to produce a nice EP. The group has been together for less than a year, having formed in March 2013, but the EP sounds as if they have been together much longer. I found the EP to be a perfect soundtrack to a lazy afternoon with “Around the Bend” and “Castles” being my two favorite songs off the EP.
If you are luck enough to live in the San Diego area, check out these guys. The rest of us will have to wait until they make it to our town which hopefully will be soon. In the meantime you can check out their website http://www.brokenstems.com
