In 2008, when Nashville-based Satellites & Sirens singer Geoff Hunker was first looking to start a band, he did what any person might do, he put out a Craigslist ad. It was at the very first round of auditions that he found drummer Jonathan Dimmel, who had only moved to Nashville 5 months prior. It didn’t take long to round out the band with guitarist David Troyer, and former bassist Brandon Owens.
Within a year of that first Craigslist ad, S&S not only had a record deal with Word/Warner Bros, but they completed their first full length record. Their self-titled debut was released in March 2010, and was a critical success, garnering 2 Dove Award nominations for “Rock Recorded Song of the Year” and “Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year”.
