|The Life and Times is a trio from
Kansas City, MO led by ex-Shiner frontman Allen Epley. Unburdened by
the math and crushing
guitars of Shiner, in The Life and Times, everything is fair game for Epley,
and this is the freest he’s felt in his songwriting since the early
days of Shiner. He’s
joined in The Life and Times by ex-Ring, Cicada bassist Eric Abert (who
replaced original member, Someday I John Meredith) and drummer Mike Meyers
from The String and Return. They've since signed to DeSoto.
" Despite the obvious focus on melody, the most distinct change in Epley’s songwriting is his fascination with delicacy and the threat (as opposed to the execution) of bone-crushing power." - DrawerB
RIYL: Chavez, Shiner, Blonde Redhead, Burning Airlines
