In late 2001, an adventure was brewing. Friends gathered and the declaration was made: "It's going to be you, me and Iowa". Two years later, the band was formed. After two EP's and four years of constant performance, band members Tony Benedetti, (drums), Andrew Carroll, (vocals, guitar), Tizoc Estrada, (guitar, glockenspiel), Ryan Julio, (bass, vocals, percussion), and Ryan Ross, (keys, trumpet), are pleased to unveil their first full-length album.
The Adventures of You Me & Iowa is a breath of fresh air—indie-pop-rock that twists the genre in a new and authentic musical direction. Complex arrangements combine with catchy melodies and an inspired rhythm section. Coupled with the comic book/graphic novel style booklet by established artist and video-game designer Chuck Wadey, the album brings the listener along for a sonic and visual adventure.
With the help of engineer David Newton (The Mighty Lemon Drops, Fonda, The Little Ones, The Happy Hollows), and mixer J. Robbins, (Jawbox, The Dismemberment Plan, The Promise Ring, Jets To Brazil), You Me & Iowa has taken the fuel of the past four years to light the fire of The Adventures Of You Me & Iowa.
Since their beginnings in 2003, You Me & Iowa played their dues around the West, performing with their up-and-coming peers: Midnight Movies, Mellowdrone, Monsters Are Waiting, The Velvet Teen and Rx Bandits. It is their vivacious live show that not only keeps their loyal fanbase fixated, but even won them "Best Alternative Rock Band" at the 2005 L.A. Music Awards.
Frontman, Andrew Carroll, remarks on the title of the newly released record, The Adventures Of You Me & Iowa. "For us, making a living as a band, every day is quite an adventure. It doesn't always necessarily have a happy ending. But it wouldn't be an adventure if that were the case."
