Joining forces in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2005, Now Soon Nowhere co-founders Scott Radway and the ever-elusive Inspector Minsini (joined soon thereafter by "Guiterrorist" Shawn Grafius, Rich Banister on bass and Mike Magliozzo on drums) brought together their collective interests in various styles of music, including rock, jazz, experimental, soundtrack, surf, world and electronic to form a sound that was both non-compromising and surprisingly listener-friendly simultaneously.
Inspired initially by the genre-hopping ideas of artists like John Zorn and Mike Patton, as well as the textured pop/rock nature of groups like Radiohead, Portishead, and Porcupine Tree, NSN released their debut album, “Samadhi”, in the spring of 2007. After some brief touring and fine-tuning of their sound, they returned to the studio to create 2008’s “Character Studies (Le Théâtre de l’Absurde)”.
