So who is The Fairweather?
The indie alternative band The Fairweather formed in January of 2015, when Ashkan Karimi & Austin Donoho invited mutual friends Kristopher Elliott & Bobby Ross over to jam in a suburban garage in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ever since that first cold rehearsal, The Fairweather have been constantly reinventing themselves, synthesizing their sound with passion born out of frustrated hope and dogged optimism. They play spirited rock that is emotionally moving and groove driven, dusted with classic sonority reminiscent of their Middle America home.
I think the reason we stand out is because we don’t view it as a competition. I think when we were younger and immature I totally saw it that way, but when you grow up and zoom out you realize that music is art, and all of us bands and musicians are contributing to a gigantic pool of music. We try to differentiate ourselves by being eclectic, and not pigeon hole ourselves so we aim to evolve. We want to be good but we’re definitely not trying to compete, if anything we’re just competing with our last project or our old selves. Our goal is to give our fans and friends a band and music that they can believe in, latch onto, and connect with emotionally, and hopefully if we can do that our music can help them make that “big decision” that they may be facing in life where they won’t be afraid to take the plunge and go after their dreams.

A HUGE shout out and thank you to The Fairweather for making this all possible! I’m so excited to say that you were my first band that I was able to interview. You are all wonderfully talented gentlemen and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Until next time,
