Where is the group from and how long have you been here?
Ryan Gillam is from Longview, Texas; Rebekah Price is from Jacksonville Beach, Fla.; and Gordon Palmer is from Santa Barbara, Calif. Fare the Gap was formed in Savannah in November 2012. We added Gordon to the family for our tour of Texas in November/December 2013.
Some of your musical influences?
Tommy James and the Shondells, Brian Wilson/Beach Boys, Mamas and Papas, Max Steiner
Your sound in three words:
Rock and roll.
What are some of your favorite Savannah venues and why?
Having quality sound and financial payout is great, but when it comes down to it, the people really make the difference between having a positive or negative experience at a venue. Two places really stand out in our minds.
Heather Flagler at Hang Fire has really helped us to get the time on stage we need to develop our craft. The atmosphere there is always great and they draw a solid crowd.
We also love working with Peter and Blake at Dollhouse. If you looking to hear a solid-sounding show, Dollhouse is the place to go.
What's in the future?
We have two major projects in mix. First, we're working with Sunhouse Entertainment to produce our first music video. It's going to be quite the production. Look out, as it should be released within the next 6-8 months. Secondly, our second album is underway and we will hopefully be adding new songs from it to our live set soon. Other than that, we're booking a few shows in L.A. in March and working on a tour through Tennessee set for late summer 2014.
Anything else to add?
We like to take any opportunity we can to thank our friends, families and fans. We were shown an incredible amount of support during our Kickstarter campaign back in November and are very appreciative of everyone who contributed.
