Eric and Billie had been playing music for a few years before the band got started under the name Lessthanthree, playing covers ranging from the beatles, to Panic at the Disco, nevershoutnever and blink-182. They had talked about starting a band for a long time, but never really acted on it seriously, until the opportunity opened itself.
While Eric was focusing on life outside of music, and still finding time to write acoustic songs, Billie had been writing his own music and scoping out people that he thought he could make music with. He met Amos Williams. An insane guitarist who wanted to play in a band where he had the freedom to play what he wanted, in a setting different that country, blues, and jam fests. We approached him about the band, and he was basically born ready.
We then found Liam Dwyre, who is currently playing in a metal band called Trouble in Denmark. We asked him if he was interested in trying out our band, and try something new. He quickly agreed. He just loves to play drums, so he was cool with it.
So we sat around thinking. Who the hell is going to be our bassist. We thought of a number of people that might fit the part, and then we thought. DAMN! Liam's brother plays bass! We asked him if he was interested, and he wasn't sure at the time, but once we got him playing, he couldn't turn back. We knew from the second he started playing, he was the one to fit that spot, and we couldn't think of anyone better than Eli to play bass for us. Things were rolling smoothly.
Everything just feel into place, with alot of work from Billie, grouping the right people up, and Eric planning other things on the side to get things rolling. And thanks to Amos and Liam, we'll be getting some studio time for an album. And Eli is Eli. He's awesome, and him alone could make this band amazing. :D
And this is the story of Running with Scissors. More to come!
