Free Minds Rising
Free Minds Rising began in early 2016 when brothers Teo Weldon (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Nate Weldon (keys, backing vocals, bass) crossed paths with Stephen Geller (drums, electronic drums, synth) and Michael Christofferson (lead guitar, drums, electronic textures). Brought together by the thriving music scene of Placerville in Northern California, these four musicians found their collective sound to be filled with a new and unique energy. The band formed and played several shows in Northern California and LA.
2016 and early 2017 were spent recording and mixing their debut album (released October, 2017). The album finds it's foundations in acoustic and electric indietronica and has explorations into the world of digital synths and exotic instruments like the Maschine and the Omnichord.
