Biography

Hailing from the deserts of Tempe, AZ, where cacti run rampant and there’s sand everywhere underfoot, LET GO have been planning their emergence from the heat. Formed from the musical collision of members from The Stereo, Gloritone and Pollen, Let Go drinks from the same taps as Jimmy Eat World and The Format, but creates a sound all their own.

When vocalist/guitarist Jamie Woolford felt the need to augment his demos with some added muscle, Let Go was born with the addition of bassist Chris Serafini and drummer Scott Hessel. “Let Go is the direct result of me pulling Jamie out of my ‘Obi-Wan-esque’ hiatus from music to start a brand new band,” explained Chris, poking a hole in Jamie’s story. “After I formed a solid rhythmic bond with Scott in Gloritone, it was a no-brainer to have him jump in with us and create this trio.”

With a handful of shows in their collective back pocket, Let Go has implemented an ingenious and non-confrontational touring band member: their iPod. “We use the iPod for playback of keyboards, extra guitars and sound effects,” Jamie explains, clearing up the mystery of what makes their sound so big. With the left channel serving as a click-track for the drums and the right channel serving as a sequencer for the sound system, the iPod keeps all three in sync with each other. “To its credit,” Jamie continues, “using the iPod seems to have actually drawn more attention to the band than had we done without it. It’s funny what people choose to regard as important.”

    Let Go wrote some great powerpop material, with the slightest tinge of an influence from mainstream rock acts such as Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age. it's a shame that they are so underrated.

    Although I know Jamie Woolford personally and think of him as a less than wonderful human being :-/ I still have to admit I love this song and that album in its entirety. Was never toooo fond of The Stereo or Animal Chine but Let Go was great. Too bad they ended.
