The Uncertain Sea started because I was playing bass in Spokeshaver
and I wanted the ability to play guitar in a band again. As a fan of the music and talent of Steve Albini, I was a member of his studio's web forum
, affectionately known as "The PRF."
Through that forum, I became friends with a wonderful group of people. Jeremy, Sam, and Myself made up about half of the Denver contingent of members at the time, so the three of us decided to start playing music together. My longtime friend Mike Taylor, who I had played with in Out on Bail
, was brought in to play bass. We had our first practices in 2010 and by the fall of that year, we had played our first show. In 2011, we put out a 5 song CD-ep and took it to Austin to play the SXSW festival.
