SOUND|STUDIES is a Colorado Springs, CO based rock band.
Brandon Metz and Ryan May began making music together in 1995 – before they were even able to drive. Addicted to writing music, the two amassed a large collection of songs in their first 6 years of playing together in their original band, leer. Disbanding in 2001, the two would continue to play music in different parts of the country, eventually returning to Colorado Springs in 2012 where they would form their next musical project, SOUND|STUDIES in August of 2012. In December of 2012, Kyrt Ellis joined the band playing bass guitar.
Best described as a rock band with alternative roots, SOUND|STUDIES music is dynamic. Heavy, overdriven guitars may populate one song while the next features slow, tremolo laced riffs. Brandon’s lyrics are clever, emotional and almost always peppered with sarcasm. Currently performing as a three-piece, their live sound is full, powerful, tight and articulate.
SOUNDS|STUDIES has shared the stage with many acts such Morning Parade, Listener, Foals, The Features, Finch, Lieutenant (Nate Mendel, Foo Fighters and Sunny Day Real Estate) The Unlinkely Candidates, Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World) and many more. After being awarded 2nd place in the KTCL 93.3 Big Gig in 2015 they had the honor of playing at Fiddler’s Green alongside some of the best artists Colorado has to offer and currently, their single “Amy” is in heavy rotation on RXP103.9 in Colorado Springs.
The band is currently writing songs for an upcoming release – look for new material from SOUND|STUDIES in the Summer of 2016.
