The Spins are bringing a new brand of pop-rock to the San Francisco Bay Area. Formed in the fall of 2002, The Spins have played hundreds of shows in the Bay Area and across the country over the past 5 years. They just released their second EP, "Passages", in January 2007, and are currently touring behind it.
With emotioanal, soaring vocals, and a powerful, piano-based rhythm section, The Spins fit in perfectly with pop icons Coldplay and The Fray and still have the talent to stand on their own.
The Spins started in fall of 2002 when David Baron (piano/guitar/vocals), Gabe Davis (bass), and Ben Grant (drums) met as freshmen at Stanford University. Five years later, they recorded a self-titled EP and moved to San Francisco. Their first single, "Tell Her Something," won Best Music Video in San Francisco in Alice 97.3's 2006 3-Minute Film Festival.
In January 2007, The Spins released their second EP, "Passages." Produced by grammy-winning producer Stephen Short, "Passages" features 4 piano-based rock ballads in the vein of Coldplay and The Fray. David, Ben, and Gabe are touring throughout 2007 in support of their new EP.
