Thirstbusters / Press

“Their sound, described as melodic, jazz-infused pop, evokes Coldplay and Dave Matthews Band and has a richness and depth despite the band's youth (all of the band's members are currently seniors in college)... So why should you read about a foursome of college kids who grew up in Berkeley, CA and started a band? It's simple — their music is extraordinary, their talent inherent, and their unique understanding that making it big in the music industry comes with the responsibility of education, hard work, and collaboration with truly trusted partners is impressive. It's a brotherhood of the new economy built around a business of old and these kids are doing what it takes to make it work. Thirstbusters really has a darn good shot... These four guys are absolutely that — magical. Thirstbusters perches on the clear edge of opportunity and it's obvious they have all trained, studied, and prepared enough to justify success... You'll be hearing and seeing a lot more of Thirstbusters.”

“Smooth, jazzy sound, akin to that of John Mayer and Maroon 5... Sorgen is indeed a strong musical presence... He takes classical guitar lessons, is in the Jazz Ensemble and Combo, sings a cappella with the Vassar Devils, has a role in the upcoming Drama Department production of "RENT" and is forming his own soul/R&B ensemble. And despite the impressive breadth of his involvement at Vassar, he still wants to expand his horizons... Sorgen is only a sophomore, but with the significant recognition his music has already received, he is on his way to achieving greatness.”

“Thirstbusters: Quench Your Thirst for Good Music... they have been inching towards a huge breakthrough into the music industry and have never stopped pursuing their dream to be the next big American band. Despite attending different colleges – Sorgen attends Vassar and Jackson attends Oberlin, while Thomas and Mitchell attend UCLA, they correspond and dedicate themselves to their band everyday, confident that their commitment and love for music will touch the lives of those around them”

“They continued to perform at local venues... After an encouraging response from the public, they decided to record an album. In the summer of 2009, not long after Thomas, Jackson, and Mitchell graduated from BHS, Thirstbusters released their debut album Time You Awake. They received much praise for the album and as listeners from the music industry caught wind, they were inspired to send it to Disney... The band’s most recent triumph is the release of the music video for their hit song, “So There,” the third track on their album... The band plans to make Thirstbusters a full time commitment once they have graduated... Their love for music and loyalty as a band has helped the group progress quickly over the past two years. The band sets an encouraging example for young and upcoming artists, especially in the Bay Area, and the community is proud to support their success as they embrace adventure in the music industry. In the meantime, fans can look forward to a second album.”

“Despite going to different schools across the country, the band already has a music video under their belt. The video’s song, titled “So There,” is a unique jazz-pop rendition bound to get stuck in the head of anyone who hears it... Thirstusters are determined for success. They have a refreshingly diverse style and an infinite drive to go far.”

“Despite going to different colleges, the friends have come together, along with Ryan Thomas, to form a pop/rock group, Thirstbusters. The single, “So There” from the debut album, “Time You Awake” has been featured on the playlist of the DisneyXD Channel and the DISH Network. The Thirstbusters have performed in venues such as Ashkenaz and the California State Fair and have recently released a music video of the single.”
