In the Spring of 2008, after a chance encounter at the prominent Billy’s Lounge located in the heart of Eastown, Grand Rapids (while sharing a pitcher of Short’s Brewing’s own Soft Parade), Tim Strother and Sean Cudahy began cultivating the beginnings of what is now known as Fancy Bread. Since then, the band has undergone several unique lineups, and has shared the bill alongside a handful of well-known Michigan acts.
It wasn’t until 2016 that the duo was introduced to Traverse City’s own Kyle Avery at the same Eastown watering hole where it all began. Ultimately, this lead to the trio seeking to genre-bend indie jam, slacker rock, and psychedelia, rooted in Americana, and aiming it’s sights towards a soundscape that creates a place of “pure imagination”.
