The indie electro rock band, The Fairweather formed in January of 2015, when Ashkan Karimi & Austin Donoho invited mutual friends Kristopher Elliott and Bobby Ross over to jam in a suburban garage in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ever since that first cold rehearsal, The Fairweather have been constantly reinventing themselves; synthesizing their sound with a passion born out of frustrated hope and dogged optimism. After the successful release of their debut record “Untie My Tongue,” The Fairweather took to the road throughout the summer, and fall, playing tour dates throughout the mid west. While gaining momentum and reaching new levels of regional success, the guys had to come to grips with a hard decision; to say goodbye to their friend and drummer Kris Elliott. Since then, they have taken a more edited approach in writing their sophomore project with the addition of Bobby’s long time friend and drummer, Aaron Seale. Keen to further establish their reputation with a more focused effort; The Fairweather is creating their own brand of bold and bombastic rock built on a foundation of greasy, infectious grooves and the classic dusting of 80’s electro-pop.
Since their inception, the band has stayed committed to writing and recording even while touring and playing a steady stream of live shows. Sharing stages and festival slots with resembling acts like Mute Math, Dreamers, Civil Twilight, Young The Giant, and more have been highlights during their short time together. With their goal to create art that is close to the heart and honest, The Fairweather value staying true to what they believe music should do: make you feel. Relevant and timeless, personal and genuine, The Fairweather captivate listeners with thoughtful songwriting, meaningful, heartfelt lyrics, and a passionate live show you don’t want to miss.
