Getters - We Are Getters [EP]
“…a wide array of rhythmic and spatial sounds mixed with thought-provoking lyrics and gravitating vocal melodies.” – New Noise Magazine
“Somewhere between radio-friendly pop and garage rock, Getters create the kind of music that’s both pleasant in the background and worthy of a thorough listen in a dark room.” – Houston Press
“a melodic piece of alt rock that’s brazenly refreshing, mesmerizing, and intoxicating” – AMP
Indie-rock trio Getters is the culmination of a friendship and business partnership that sparked on a summer afternoon at a Chili’s in northwest Houston in the early 2000s. At that time, guitarist/keyboardist, Jerry Nettles, was the ripe age of 17, and had just taken his band from the garage to the national stage by signing a deal with Maverick/Warner Records. Drummer Micah Miller was attending the University of Houston, waiting tables, and pursuing a career in music as well. The two met, immediately clicked, and, in due time, took both of their bands to the peak of Houston’s rock music scene, and, shortly thereafter, the national scene.
Today, along with vocalist Chris Goodwin, Jerry and Micah are applying imaginative indie-rock songwriting instincts to their band Getters. The trio represents an innovative indie platform—artists who incorporate branding and industry knowhow into their creativity. Later this year, the Houston, Texas-based band will issue a 6-song debut EP via B.A.M. Recordings / X5 Music Group, but it has been seeding the path to this release with a monthly series of clever and well-received single and video releases.
“When we first started the band, the intention was purely as a creative outlet—we were just writing vulnerable songs that tell our stories in public,” Jerry says. He continues: “These days, being an artist doesn’t stop at finishing a song, or tracking a guitar part, so, as we went along, we began to incorporate our knowledge and experience in the business to support our songwriting.” (continue reading full bio on download page)
