Alloy is a band comprised of self taught musicians that create music with hopes of inspiring you. Our goals are simple, play with our heart, mind, and soul and let the chips fall where they may.
We all come from lower, middle, and upper class backgrounds in three different parts of the state, Terrell, Garland, and Greenville Tx. As people we are as different as night and day such as our choices in music and in life, yet we share some common core beliefs. It is those beliefs which will keep us untouchable.
Alloy was formed in early 2008 when Thomas Mcdonald (Bass Player), brought an old friend of his from Terrell, Texas, Chas Eacret(Lead Guitar/ Lead Vocals) to a new jam spot in Thomas es home town of Greenville, Texas. Thomas had been jamming with Tony Welch(Drums), from Garland, Texas, for 2 years at Tony s house with a host of other good players. The next time Thomas ran into Chas he made sure to give'em an invite to check it out. Chas arrived one morning with a grin on his face and a bottle of whisky in his hand. After the three of us played for hours on end that day, we knew we had something that wasn't bad. Chas suggested that we form a band and play shows around town, so Thomas came up with a name and that was the beginning of Alloy.
