Born and bred in Bristol, UK, I have always been surrounded by music. My father is a guitarist and always listens to Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath. My mother is not a musician, but she always listens to AC/DC and Billy Idol. At age 8, I started playing guitar. I am now 19 and have made guitar my main instrument, but I can also play drums. Last year, however, my musical journey nearly ended.
I first started Nocturnal Company when I got to Albuquerque my freshman year of college. I would stay up all night in my dorm recording on my laptop with the only live instruments being guitar and keyboard. Luckily, I had this roommate (he smoked hella pot and would do things like hollow out watermelons and fill them full of vodka to take to parties while feigning a french accent in the hopes of getting laid) who would stay at his girlfriend’s dorm most of the time.
What do you get when you combine the funky bass lines of the Chili Peppers, the haunting vocals of Nirvana, the screeching leads of Buckethead, the beefy guitars of Basement, and the powerful rumble of Balance and Composure drumming? A cacophony of styles and tastes blend into a unique representation of alternative rock music in the form of Tuesday Atlas. We just like to make songs that get stuck in your head, like a ghost in your attic.
