Jason McDuffie (Guitarist/Lead Singer) and Joel Benton (Bassist) met each other when Jason auditioned (and was hired on) for a traditional heavy metal band that Joel was in at the time. After an extremely odd breakup of that band, Jason and Joel decided to work on some fresh new material and move forward together; developing a more modern-day hard rock sound with a progressive metal edge. This new project became known as Steps From Fallen.
After a couple of years, and a few drummers later, Jason invited Don McCarley (Drummer) to audition for the band. Jason had met and played with Don on a side music project that never quite took off. Don's playing style, attitude and personality were a perfect fit for the band and he was immediately offered (and accepted) the job as drummer for Steps From Fallen.
Finally, after almost a full year of playing gigs around Atlanta and sporadically auditioning lead guitarists, Brandon Gray (Lead Guitarist) hit the band up for an audition from a post he found at a local music store. His unique and accomplished playing style, as well as his laid back attitude and outgoing personality, were the last missing piece to this musical puzzle. Brandon was immediately offered (and accepted) the job as lead guitarist for Steps From Fallen; which solidly rounded out the band's overall sound.
