All in their early 20's, and only being together for almost 3 years, the potential for these four young men are becoming more evidently high.

The Unemployed Architects come from a very diverse musical background coming together to complete a very different - yet familiar and unique sound.

Three members of bonded friendship since childhood and one coincidentally falling into place to fill the fourth and final puzzle piece.

Besides the talented , tasteful, and lingering effect of their music, emerges two very talented singer-songwriters both with a wide range of original music as well as the rising and maturing of original music from other like-minded band members.

The obviously different, yet cohesive, vocal and musical styles come together in a way without question, only to push the boundaries of the Rock genre to very new and exciting places.

Their live shows have built a reputation as top notch among the colleges around central Illinois. Book them to expect turnout , and they are sure to deliver a great performance, as well as a lasting impression.They were truly birthed for this collaboration.
