May – September 2013
Jeremy Lyon and Zak Mandel-Romann formed Tumbleweed Wanderers in March 2011. Sharing a mutual admiration of the “O Brother Where Art Thou” soundtrack, Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get it On” and Fleet Foxes “Ragged Wood” the two dropped out of college to pursue music full-time. They recruited keyboardist Patrick Glynn, who Zak has played with since he was ten, drummer Daniel Blum, who Jeremy met when he was sweeping the floors of a recording studio, and Rob Fidel, who Jeremy met at an open mic on the first day of college. As of now, they’re recording their debut EP, due out in September, as well as performing anywhere and everywhere from clubs to open mics to busking on the street.
