Casey Hill and Vito Soto first met in music theory class. they later played together in a band called winston. Not long after Casey departed Winston, He met an epic sextrunk by the name of Sextrunk (AKA Aaron Chidlaw). Sextrunk was also really good at bass. They wrote lots of cool songs together. Vito Soto agreed to play drums for the duo, and thus Tender Slap was born. Thx to Drew Doman for the name \m/.
Vito departed from the group in late 2012 due to artistic differences. The very talented Ricky Muzick stepped up to play drums as of 2013 and the group continues press on. They are currently in the process of finishing an EP which is set to be released later in the year.
