Alarm Clock Conspiracy / Bio

Join the Conspiracy...

We are an indie rock / power pop band from Asheville, NC. We have played hundreds of shows since 2009 and love what we do. The "conspiracy" which we speak of, is the fallacy that all humans must awake to a bellowing alarm clock each morning, only to rush off to work at a job that they truly hate. We are the spearheads of a revolution against day jobs everywhere. Our influences are drawn from the 60's and 70's, but have been adapted into modern, original music that has been exciting audiences and steadily building a crowd base of dedicated fans backed by high energy performances and genuine musicianship.

Born In The Morning Sun

Chris and Ian have been playing together as an acoustic act for almost ten years. In 2009 they decided to fill out the band with bass and drums. Enter Jamie and Wes. Since then, the band has been performing relentlessly in Western NC and the southeast. In mid 2013, we added John and his keyboards to fill the gaps.

Surrender To The World

In 2012, we released our first, self-produced album with the help of our friend and engineer Greg Sipes. That album featured Michael Guggino (Steep Canyon Rangers mandolin), Forrest Smith(pedal steel) and Isaac Wells(percussion) on several of the tracks. In January of 2013, that album drew the attention of a record label from Athens, GA and landed us a recording contract. They sent us to record with legendary producer/engineer/pro-tools guru, John Keane, in his studio in Athens. John has been in the industry for years and worked with the likes of R.E.M., Widespread Panic, Indigo Girls, and Warren Zevon just to name a few. With a gold and platinum winning producer on our side, we were on cloud nine for sure. Randall Bramblett (Traffic, Greg Allman Band, Steven Winwood, and countless studio sessions) also honored us by playing on two of the songs! We are titling the album, "Harlequin".

Fall Down

It was almost the end of our recording session, and we found out that through a string of unfortunate events, our label had lost all funding for our project. That news really hit us hard. We were left to find a way to save this album from being shelved forever.

So Far Away

It remains to be seen the fate of the John Keane sessions. Currently we are working to raise the money to buy it from John Keane. ......
