Formed January of 2009, Ike as in Dwight is Organic by nature, creating music built upon basic principles yet complex in structure. With upbeat, light-hearted songs, Ike as in Dwight focuses on simple and moving melodies with extensive use of vocal harmonies between a male and female vocalist. There is emphasis placed on the dynamics of our music; every aspect of each song is intimately connected. Excluding slight use of reverb and delay, the songs consist of clean instrumentals working together to culminate in a unique, earthly sound.
Currently, Ike as in Dwight is on a temporary hiatus after releasing their debut EP, titled ‘Nature of People, People of Nature.’ While Scott and Nick have pursued work in the northeast, John in the midwest,and Maya in the Appalachians, Ike as in Dwight has found themselves hundreds of miles apart yet still intrinsically connected by the hard work and emotional devotion that they have all put into their music. Ike as in Dwight plans to continue to play shows when the opportunities arise, and to also continue to write music together. Our temporary situation is really just a ‘Goodbye, for now.’ The EP is available for free download on Sewn Together Records.
