Forming in 2017, Plain Faraday is now a ‘much more than indie-folk’ project hailing from Colorado. The backbone of the group consists of the father-son duo, Caleb (vocals and guitar) and Rob Sanders (bass). The guild of musicians also includes cellist Katie Burns, drummer Miles Jenkins, multi-instrumentalist Ezra Bram, multi-instrumentalist Riley Merino, and trumpet player Ian Thomas. Follow along and you will see other local artists from time to time joining the coterie of melody-making friends.
Plain Faraday’s indie sound lies somewhere between acoustic Americana and modern folk, often integrating aspects of indie-rock, jazz, and an increasing amount of groove funk. Their quest for meaningful lyrics and dynamic compositions are guided by a respect for wood and steel, times past and present.
Over the years, the group has released a handful of singles. In January, they released another fully independent song, ‘Blue Eyes’ – a tune that explores the blurred boundaries between jazz and indie-pop. Their first full record (a 7-track EP) was released on all streaming platforms September 12th.
When not playing music, Team Faraday can be found roaming the streets of Golden, Colorado, consuming local brew (coffee and beer), throwing down in a game of chess, hucking a disc with friends in a city park, basking riverside in the warm sun, kicking the hacky-sack, and exploring the inspiring Rocky Mountains.
