Forty Feet North

Forty Feet North.jpg

Forty Feet North is a Rock 'n' Roll band at heart, with palpable funk, blues, folk, and traditional influences. This wide array of inspiration gives them a unique sound that can find a home in dirty dives and family farmers markets. Their debut album,Time Flies, is a showcase of this range, with songs that "combine genres like folk, funk, blues and more... and in fact, form a signature sound along the way," (Divide and Conquer Music).

It is this signature sound that has carried the band this far, and they are thrilled to share it with the folks at The Back Room. While not currently so, the Bay Area has been called home by 5 of the band's members at one time or another, and they are eager to return to Northern California.

FFN has had many lineups (and band names) over the years, but the core four of Daniel Diemer (guitar/keys/vocals), Sarah Garcia (guitar/keys/vocals), Dalton Varney (bass/vocals), and Austin Zimmerman (guitar/vocals) has remained ever-constant. The group met and began playing together in college in the Los Angeles area and have toured the West Coast as recently as early 2018. They are joined on this summer tour by drummer Liam Craddock and vocalists Briana Grether and Gary Thomas. While the music of Time Flies is evidence of the band's comfort with vocal harmony, the addition of two extremely talented vocalists means that FFN's high-flying harmonies are bigger and better than ever. You won't want to miss your chance to see them in action.

"This is the type of band that casts a wide net of appeal." - Divide and Conquer Music
