Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: Rob Thorworth, guitar and vocals

Founded in: 1980

Style: roots rock

Influenced by: the Beatles, Bruce Hornsby, Ray LaMontagne

Notable: Years back, Thorworth fronted a blues power trio until eventually deciding to perform solo. He released Dig it Up about a year and half ago, and recently decided to gather some musicians and return to playing with a band.

Quotable: "To be brutally honest with it, I'm bored with playing by myself," Thorworth said. "It was fun at first, but I need that interaction with the other musicians. I've recently found some guys, and I'm very excited about playing with them."
