Innocent Bystander is now on an extended indefinate hiatus. The guys have graduated from high school and are attending different colleges.
Innocent Bystander plays an eclectic mix of alternative, popular, and rock songs- classic tunes as well as music from today. They add on to that base with their own originals that lets them form their own musical identity and make them a hit with their audiences.
Jess, Ryan, and Alex play together with brass instruments in the high school band and also are the core of the TJ high school jazz band playing the drums, electric guitar and bass guitar. This school connection brought the boys together to form a rock band. They began playing shows with the Puget Sound Youth Music Association to fine tune their sound and have become a tight polished alternative rock band.
In the summer of 2012 they added singer Emily Randolph to their lineup and that has transformed the band into a crowd pleaser. Emily can sing anything! She also performs as a solo artist and has completed recording an album in Nashville during 2012. Emily also plays guitar and adds another asset to the band's now four person song writing team.
The fall and winter of 2012 brought a steady stream of shows in Seattle and Tacoma at Louie G's, Studio 7, El Corazon and the Live Room. The fan base is continuing to grow, allowing them to play at bigger venues and as the headliner. The band is always looking for opportunities to play at music venues, festivals, or private partys.
