Survival is more than just living, it's doing something worth remembering with the lives that we have. This band is our survival instinct.
Formed by college friends Nico Vasilo and Adam J. Albright in 2011. What began as some simple songwriting quickly started to flourish, and they enlisted the help of Jessica Lynn to provide additional vocal work and Matt Biehl on drums. The Survival Instinct wasted no time releasing their debut EP, Only Sketches, early the following year. Inspired by the vocal dynamics of Mariah Carey, the progressive melodies of Florence + The Machine, the lyrical honesty of Silverchair, the catchiness of John Mayer, and the pop sensibilities of Jason Mraz, the band has taken those influences and crafted radio-friendly future-hits. They work together to co-write their unique brand of infectious, heart-driven pop-rock. They’d like to thank you for reading this bio and hope you had a great time shopping at The Survival Instinct.
