Searching for Sanity / Bio

Searching for Sanity is a 4 piece band from Coweta, Ok. Formed January 2004 by drummer Charlie Ledford and singer/guitarist Joey Barrows. The sound is a hard hitting rock style with an in your face and full of attitude. Very melodically driven with a softer side that builds into some heavier more powerful songs with tasty guitar licks. In August 2009 the band took stage for the first time as SFS, from there they developed a large following and started playing shows such as Rocklahoma, Cains Ballroom, Aftershock in Kansas City, etc. The first EP was "Dark Side of Ecstasy" released in 2010. This was followed by a full length record "Return from Exile" in 2012 and "Therapy" EP in 2013. With the addition of Ryan Kirk on lead guitar and Jeff Orr on bass the sound is now more complete than it has ever been.
