Windjammer ~ Isle of Palms ~ 03/10/2016
Enjoy Nashville Surf Pop! Making whimsical surf-tinged pop may seem like a daunting task when you live states away from the nearest beach, but guitarist and vocalist Jared Corder was determined to make the music reminiscent of his California birthplace. The band was always intended to be a 3 piece: Jared on guitar and vocals, Andy Herrin on drums, with female harmony vocals reminiscent of the harmony-driven landscape of 1960s West Coast beach pop. The band's first single "12345678" was released in March 2013, "History", was released in September 2013, and "Chemical Reaction" was released Feb 1, 2014, and preceded the band's first full length album, "Bad Latitude", released in March 2014. Another song from the debut album, "not the one" went into heavy rotation on Nashville's beloved Indie station Lightning 100 (100.1FM). "Bad Latitude" is available through all major digital retailers. "Floral Canyon", the anticipated sophomore album, is slated for release in 2016. http://www.the-windjammer.com/wp/
