Sink to See was set in motion when two students, Jason Napier and Dony West, met while attending art school in Columbus, Ohio and began their songwriting partnership. Their guitar driven, emotionally melodic indie rock tunes, along with a little hard work, helped them garner the attention on the local college scene.
In January of 2001, the band uprooted from the Midwest and made their way to California, where they’ve made their rock ‘n’ roll nest. It was in Santa Barbara that Jason and Dony meet bass guitarist Shawn Bathe, and it was an instant fit. Soon to follow was percussionist Tariq Mills, a longtime acquaintance of the band. The four have since been making quite name for themselves, getting spins on KJEEE, and recently L.A.’s world famous KROQ, music placements on MTV, and opening for such notable bands such as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Breeders, Ima Robot, The Violent Femmes, and Sugarcult.
Sink to See is a band of songwriters with old school rock ‘n’ roll heart and soul and an indie rock core. They’re a very close group of musician friends who are bringing to life the music that has been stirring inside them since the band’s infancy. Lushly melodic, sometimes dark, and evocative of mood, their music is fueled by emotional vocals and lyrics that paint elaborate pictures. Sink to See makes music that shows the many faces, feelings, and emotions of the band. They are true to their musicianship, and are always striving to better themselves and the world through music.
