Conceived in the western mountains of Maine, Sonic Paradigm is a group comprised of three close friends: Isaac Osterhout on lead vocals and guitar, Phelan Barry playing percussion and supporting vocals, and Chris Tranten playing bass, supporting guitar and vocals. Writing and performing original music crossing the boundaries of genres, taking influence from classic rock bands, with hints of jazz, funk and reggae with a progressive twist.
The group has played out at a number of area bars. As well as playing at the Green Love Festival in 2011 in addition to being added to the bill for 2013. The group has made a few trips down to mid-state New York for a recording mission as well as a stop at C.L.G.M. to perform.
As of January 2012 the goup has had music available for sale up on iTunes with their first release, a three song self-titled E.P.
