Band

Biography

Sleep for the Weary delivers their aggressive yet melodic brand of alt-rock from Nashville, TN. Vocalist Ian Shannon’s solo work (In To and Out From, 2014) bears the band’s name, but his fervent voice is bettered with the inclusion of band members Robb Edmondson (drums), John Hurst (lead guitar), and Eric Woodrow (bass). The group transcended its former sound, burgeoning into their intimate alt-rock style in support of the full-length album Nocturns (2016) and in the creation of their upcoming releases Readings: 1-3 (forthcoming 2018). Sleep for the Weary’s songs are at once intimate and expansive. The songs don’t promise answers, but instead ask the listener to immerse themselves in the mysterious. They ask you to close your eyes, lean in, and see where it leads you. Their latest EP Catharsis drops in April 2018. (Writing Credit: Laura Kendall)
