Biography

Ross Mintzer and Mike Thurber met while attending high school at the Interlochen Arts Academy where Ross studied tenor saxophone and Mike studied classical music on acoustic bass. Once moving to New York City to continue their studies at The Manhattan School of Music and Juilliard respectively, Ross began to play guitar and the two started to write songs together. As a result, Remington was created (named after their mentor and friend, Dave Remington). As Remington, the duo (Mike, acoustic bass and vocals/ Ross, acoustic guitar and vocals) performs and composes all original music. All though they most commonly perform alone, they frequently enjoy collaborating with fellow musicians and music students around the country. Past collaborations have included students from The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Michigan State University, Interlochen Arts Academy, Willowcreek Middle School, IN, and Mamaroneck High School, NY, as well as many professional artists of their own generation, including Jonathan Batiste, members of the Toledo Symphony, Jennifer Sannon, Party House TV, and The Jefferson Street Variety Show.

Musically, the duo is influenced and inspired by a broad spectrum of sound. Integrating elements of rock and roll, folk, hip-hop, European classical music, and jazz, Remington plays in an original and highly personalized style that at once embraces the rich history of western music and culture that has preceded them and also embodies the spirit of the current generation of Americans. If one where to try and classify Remington’s music, it would best be described as American Music, Social Music, or Popular Music.
