In the Summer of 2017, Matt Johnson (drums), Jay Torrance (bass) and Cole Jackson (guitar, vocals) joined Chattanooga songwriter, Webb Barringer on songs he had written over the past 3 years since returning to his hometown. Barringer released his first EP "Show That Tombstone Smile" in June 2017 as a solo artist and performer. Having opened for touring artists such as Angie Aparo, Will Hoge, and Scott Miller; as well as an extensive list of local acts, Barringer felt the urge to form a group in order to deeper explore his creativity and add depth to his songs.
His songs have been described as a mixture of "murder folk" and "songs you can play to your girlfriend". However, Barringer has continued to describe himself as influenced by those influenced by John Prine.
"Chattanooga singer-songwriter Webb Barringer evokes a timeless folk lineage that lays claim to the bones of his work...An able troubadour, he deftly mixes fiction with nonfiction to build a believable environment of desperate individuals and unfortunate circumstances." -nooga.com
