'Hmmmm...' Post-Americana sensations, The Spindles, were formed in 2002 by two brothers in Vancouver, British Columbia. Anthony and James Shepherd were sons of the famed husband and wife folk duo The Leaflets, but at an early age, made a swift departure from their parents politically charged a-cappella pop. Under the name of The Lost Sheep Shepard Brothers, Anthony and James began touring the coffee house circuit in British Columbia and Alberta, quickly gaining a loyal following and critical acclaim. 'Oh My!' The brothers eventually garnered the attention of London guitarist Henry Nagle, whom they hired to do session work for their freshman release 'The Lost Sheep Shepherd Brothers: Of Birds and Stones'. They promptly asked Henry to join the band (which he would, but only after a terse salary negotiation) and moved down to Northern California, where they would rename the band 'The Spindles' after a popular British roller-coaster. 'Holy Smokes!' The three piece was almost immediately offered three nights a week at a popular brew house, where they would eventually run into long time friend and Canadian drummer Jonathan Hughes, who happened to be in the states for a collegiate track and field competition. Over a fateful weekend of tacos and wine, James was able to convince an inebriated Jonathan to settle his romantic and vocational affairs in Vancouver, and move state-side to enlist with The Spindles. 'Hot Damn!' Considering themselves on track to the college charts, and poised to start recording for their next full-length, Henry suggested the addition of Sari Flowers to the line up, having heard her the night before sing Patsy Cline covers at a nearby taproom. All agree that Sari not only applied the finishing trim onto an already polished yet provocative sounds, but also greatly improved their aesthetic. 'And How!' Since then, over the past five years, The Spindles have enjoyed the continued support of our fan base and local media with our Second-Wave Americana and Chamber-Rock favorites. They appreciate the opportunity to help your venue, record label or booking agent become more financially and socially successful. 'It's our pleasure!'
