Biography

Formed in Eugene, Oregon in 2005, Basin & Range consists of Phil Allen (drums, samples), Swan Burton (drum set), Mark Macomber (saxophone, keyboards), Dan Mahoney (guitar, keyboards), and Johnny Schlea (bass, keyboards).

Basin & Range formed when Phil Allen and Linh Renken of seminal Eugene band Lucidic decided to start a new, more dance-oriented project. The realization of this goal would prove to be a longer process than the two of them had anticipated, due to the many different musical influences of the members of the various line-ups. The initial group consisted of Phil Allen (drums), Jacob Elias (guitar), Xander Kahn (keyboards), Allan McKinley (bass), and Linh Renken (violin). This quintet played only three shows before guitarist Jacob Elias left for Mali, West Africa, to study local music and culture. During the months he was away the band continued writing and soon added saxophonist Mark Macomber to the line-up. When Elias returned to the US, he found that the band had an entirely new repertoire which was drastically different stylistically from the material he had been writing with them. Basin & Range performed a handful of shows as a sextet before ultimately deciding to continue without a guitarist, though the band remains close with Elias to this day.
