Solwave is a band of childhood friends from the Bay area; except for their drummer Moise. He's from the Ivory Coast and he joined Solwave after responding to an ad that singer Joe Collins and brothers Danny and Tommy Ferndon on bass and guitar, placed for a drummer in 2012. Everything took place in a basement rehearsal space in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District since then and is essentially where Solwave formed and congealed over the past two years. Aside from rehearsing and recording their music, Solwave's sole focus has been getting their music in front of and in the hands of a listening audience. It seems like they are well on their way.
This millennial rock hybrid adds trip-hop and psych influences to their ep mix bag. Solwave teamed up with producers Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor) and Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) on The End of the Beginning.
They continue building on the regional swell they've accumulated from relentless independent touring in 2013 with this response to their growing audience. They averaged more than 100 shows over the past year. Solwave also sold out the legendary SF 500 seater, The Independent, in May 2013. Again, all without a label or an agent signed...yet.
