Armed with a relentless work ethic, and a natural gift for crafting pop hooks, the upstate NY songwriting partnership of Tawni Bates and Andy Weaver quickly evolved into the power-pop/rock band SKooBER in early 2006. The duo, supported by various other talented musicians during live shows, spent the majority of 2006 recording demos and honing their skills as writers. With a sound that effortlessly mixed classic 60s pop hooks and a modern power pop sound, these early demos caught the attention of Pop Garden Radio host Adam Waltemire. After announcing that he was looking for a new closing theme for his show, SKooBER answered the call. SKooBER spent the first part of 2007 testing their material in front of audiences and continuing to record new demos (which garnered them rave reviews on garageband.com and several garageband.com awards). On the recommendation of Waltemire, the band got the ear of Jealousy Records owner and power pop scene fixture, Tim Anthony. By the summer of that year, the band had a deal with the label to release their debut album. With the album finished, the band is set to put 100% of their energies behind promoting it live (currently they are touring as an acoustic trio with the addition of Ross Hafler on bass).
