1933 was formed in May 2012 beginning with founding members Julien Smith and Joshua Kincaid. The two had experience with multiple bands and names prior, however they wanted 1933 to be revolutionary. This wasn’t going to be another garage jam band. Childhood friends Kyle McGee (lead guitar) and Alex Sengmanyvong (bass) were quickly recruited and the writing process began. We begin withdrawing further and further into this family 1933 had become. It was then we realized music was no longer just an option; it had become our lives. Josh, Julien, and Alex withdrew from their college courses while Kyle had quit his full-time job that had no room for this kind of lifestyle.
