Biography

There are two Last.fm artists using this name:

1) Evolving from the same sludge that has pumped out countless D.I.Y. low-fi and shoegaze bands comes Settler, a not so typical four piece from Massachusetts. Like the soundtrack to your favorite pop album, Settler favors catchy hooks and zealous build ups to produce a fun, yet serious atmosphere, guaranteed to steal the hearts of audiences over a variety of genres. With their newest release, War Wolves, Settler presents a tangible representation of a dream that has been waiting for over two years in a musty attic to be let out. With years of experience already under their belts, the members of Settler hope to push War Wolves with the same energy that has been sustaining them since their creation. Armed with a raucous live performance, Settler’s energetic disposition promises to do everything but letdown. Homegrown and comfortable, Settler’s sound and persona proves that music does not need to be overtly professional to be promising, just fun; and fun is what Settler is all about.


2) Settler were a pop band who were active on the Dublin DIY scene in the early 2000s. Formed in 2001, they were Derek McCormack (acoustic guitar, vocals) (now gluefoot), Wil McDermott (keyboards) (now Walpurgis Family/Groom), Fiona O’Connor (bass), Tim O’Donovan (drums, vocals) (also of Bell X1/Neosupervital) and Michael Stevens (electric guitar, vocals) (now of Groom/Skelocrats/Lie Ins). As well as playing extensively in Ireland, they also had some gigs in Chicago, USA.
