In the summer of 2001 Rick (drums) and Rob (guitar) started getting together on the weekends for a few beers and jamming along with CD’s. Eventually they started playing covers at various Michigan bars under such memorable names as “7 Car Pile-Up” and “Brazilian Ass-Wax.” Once Chuck (vocals) took over bass guitar duties in 2009 the band gravitated toward creating their own music. But then one fateful day in 2010, Cristie showed up to rehearsal and hijacked the bass from Chuck. They haven't been able to get rid of her since.
Pulling from a variety of musical influences (classics like Led Zepplin and The Who, 90’s icons Pearl Jam and The Smashing Pumpkins, even Iron Maiden and Japanese pop music), Confusing Sarah brings a melodic, groove-laden, lyrically driven sound that is comparable with such acts as Shinedown and Theory of a Deadman. Called “Post-Grunge” by some, Confusing Sarah’s music can have the audience dancing one minute and pumping their fist the next.
Their four song demo EP, Failing Upward, is available online and on CD-R.
