Weller - Weller

Weller began as the solo project of singer/guitarist Harrison Nantz, who after graduating college, opted to exit comfort zones and move to a city where he didn't know anyone. Upon relocating to Philly, Nantz befriended bassist Evan Clark Moorehead along with drummer Jeremy Berkin. After listening to early demos, Moorehead and Berkin expressed interest in joining the project at the start of 2016. Most of the band's creative influences - Death Cab for Cutie, Counting Crows, and Radiator Hospital - are pioneers of a similar sound.
