Formed in 2014, The Greeting Committee consists of vocalist Addie Sartino, guitarist Brandon Yangmi, bassist Pierce Turcotte, and drummer Austin Fraser, all of whom range from 18 to 20 years of age. The band quickly emerged into the music scene after catching the attention of Lazlo Geiger, a radio personality from 96.5 The Buzz. The Greeting Committee's debut EP titled "It's Not All That Bad" captivated the hearts of listeners with its intelligent musicality and meaningful lyrics. "If you want smart, credible music with a raw energy that inspires, you just found it," says Geiger. The Greeting Committee then progressed to release it’s second EP, “Meeting People Is Easy” in 2017 through Harvest Records. "We're working to create a collaborative environment with our surroundings," explains Sartino, "To us, The Greeting Committee is an art project influenced by the listeners. The music is merely the soundtrack to something much greater." The band is currently writing for their upcoming full-length, all in the midst of touring to grow their following.
