Children of the 90s Brendon and Tyson grew up in rural Indiana where life was simple and music was a huge part in their upbringing. Their parents were listening to Led Zeppelin, Crosby Stills Nash, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Cat Stephens, and many other classic rockers. All this great music was embeded into their brains throughout life and it has been the keystone for their music. While they spent their time there they basically jammed out for 3 years before moving to Indianapolis.
So during that time their improvizational skills improved dramatically. After discovering new music ie. Phish, The Grateful Dead, Medeski Martin and Wood, Built To Spill, Primus/Les Claypool, Dj Shadow, Bonobo and so on... Their musical appreciation became much higher.
When the duo came to the city the they started writing songs of many genres from; Jam,Blues,Funk,Jazz, and Folk they started playing shows around the area and started to develop a local following.
In November of 2009 LSS stumbled across a very unique bass player by the name of Ryan Goecker and since the first jam session they realized the potential of the new trio. After playing their first show in late November the chemistry only heightened during the show. The band is very happy to welcome him to the family.
The future is very bright for newly formed trio and they are currently going into the studio for the to record their 1st LP due out 2010.
