Pilgrim is Jordan Stephen (guitar, vocals), Spencer Gilbert (bass), and Drew Esselstrom (drums). We are all juniors in high school from Folsom, California.
We all decided to form a band in the spring of 2011, when we were in 8th grade.
That group, called Eleven 37, was very on again, off again, up until the Spring of 2012, when we played out around town for a few shows. Subsequently, the band officially deceased that summer.
Seeing the opportunity to start a new project, a more simplified line-up of Eleven 37 (the 3 of us who didn't bicker with each other), Pilgrim was formed in the late summer of 2012!
From then on, we started playing around our suburban town, mostly at events for our music program, the Vista Guitar Nation (http://youtube.com/vistaguitarnation). The spring of 2013, we started branching out into the Sacramento metro-area, eventually playing at places such as The Boardwalk and the California State Fair's Promenade stage.
We started calming down at the end of the summer in order to write more material and record, and are now currently planning to start playing out more as well as release an EP in the near future!
