Lauren Haile, Paul Haile, Eliott Whitehurst and Navid Manoochehri. 
-from Petaluma, CA

-These four met while attaining their music degrees from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, CA. Trebuchet originated in 2010, releasing a self-titled EP in 2012, followed by their first full-length, "Carry On" in early 2014. Later that year, the band was asked to perform at Napa's Bottle Rock Festival. In 2015, they performed an original piece at Weill Hall with the Santa Rosa Young People's Chamber Orchestra.
 Many years of studying and working on various other musical projects together have afforded its members a strong musical chemistry: one that has helped them achieve a level of honesty on their second album, Volte-Face, which reflects the two years of drastic change in the life of lyricist Eliott Whitehurst that inspired it. Lead single and album opener, A Confession, is the singer/guitarist’s admission to having not lived up to the musical expectations he had set for himself. The sentiment is shared by the group and echoed in their gang vocal approach; one that features heavily throughout the whole of Volte-Face. The opening reference to Whitehurst’s Catholic upbringing, however, is symbolic of his acceptance of the past, and the chorus refrain“Why am I expecting something better to chance by?” is as much the title-informing confession as a statement of resolve.

Mare Island
-from the Bay Area, CA
-Mare Island was started by Derrick & Sean from Loma Prieta, and Josh from TNT & TVT (The New Trust & The Velvet Teen). This new project is a "very melodic, layered, dreamy pop band".
