The story begins with Devon Peterson. She had written a lot of songs about being sad and needed something to do with them. She reached out to Jose Urquiza, who had recorded an album for her previous rock band, Motorbiscuit. So she asked Jose how much it would cost to record a solo piano album.

It was cheap.

Meanwhile, on Devon’s 21st birthday, she met Jay. Jay fell in love with her voice and proposed she record a full length rock album. With Jose’s help they found Alex Bulthuis, touring with 3 Years Hollow at the time, to help her become a star. After crossing paths in Jose’s corn field home studio, Devon and Jose also enlisted the chops of Nathan Walker, who was there recording Another Lost Year’s ‘Alien Architect’. Bringing the Nicks into this project was the breath it needed to come to life. Nick Harding, another former Motorbiscuit member, and Nick Moreno, make up the two-headed guitar duo monster, the Nicks.

What began as a solo piano project has grown to become one of the midwest’s most anticipated rock projects of 2017.

Channeling their lifelong influences of bands like Flyleaf, Breaking Benjamin, Foo Fighters and Sevendust, the quintet’s debut album “Smoke and Mirrors” is set to release independently in June 2017. As the Midwest’s freshest sound, The Premiere offers a debut album that is a mosaic of stories told over the course of a ten song journey that tests the limits of the active rock spectrum.
