Crash Landings has been hitting the San Francisco alternative rock scene with an original funky alternative sound reminiscent of early Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Between Jonathon’s upbeat drums, Neil’s harmonious bass playing, and James’s riffy guitar and unique vocal styles lie a creative force unparalleled by most acts. The band was formed in the winter of 2011 and the trio continue to perform shows throughout the Bay Area.
Neil studied jazz and grew up in a family of musicians. Neil also plays bass for various independent theater groups and has done work for a number of productions. Jonathon also grew up in a musical family. He began playing drums at 15 and has played for various groups in the Bay Area. James began writing songs at 15, and has been performing since 2007.
On August 17th 2013 the band went into the studio to record their first single. The song Run which is a staple on the Crash Landings set list was met with rave reviews and has had rotation on syndicated alternative rock radio programs such as Outside the Dial, and The Colorado Wave. The band throughout 2014 continued work on their first album and are planning an independent release January 2015.
