The Old Adage / Bio

Brother & Sister fronted group founded in March of 2012. Growing up in a family of musicians there wasn't much of a choice for the two. During grade school the Chavez's were forced against their will to take up a music based course yearly. Hence being thrown into the field, their love for music began to grow and in the summer of 2008 came the siblings first compositions. The Chavez's continued to write throughout the years, partook in battle of the bands, talent shows, and played at local cafe's as the band "CHAVEZ". In later years the group took on the name "Mimi & Nino'. Mimi & Nino was the "Civil Wars" phase for the two. Quickly the band was evolving to an "acoustic rock." Stepping into a new phase and adding member James Humason, the group decided to take on a new name that included the three. "The Old Adage". The Old Adage released their first demo the 'T.O.A.D.' in November of 2012. The TOAD consisted of acoustic rock original pieces. Again, the group would be evolving, this time to an "Electric feel" with synthesizer/drum machine based songs. Co-writers & Composers (Chavez's), recorded and produced their first 'Official' release 'MATCHES E.P.' released August 2014.
