Biography

The Good Mad is an L.A. based musical trio formed in 2011 that consists of Adam Brooks, Andy Fischer-Price and Allie Gonino. Following the release of four singles that were featured on the ABC Family original series, “The Lying Game”, The Good Mad went to Nashville to record their debut EP, Alta. The EP, produced by Phillip Swann, is stripped down folk/Americana, featuring a handful of instruments between the three members, including guitar, bass, violin, and ukelele. Combining layered harmonies and various instrumental arrangements, their music is at once nostalgic and original.

Adam Brooks is a Nashville, Tennessee native. Penning four out of the five Alta tracks, the Ohio State English graduate continues to establish himself as a song-writer and vocalist. Originally making the move to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, Brooks started playing music for fun with a couple friends, including Andy Fischer-Price, and formed a band called Mr. Adventures. Adam listened to a lot of country music growing up, being the son of a studio session guitarist in Nashville. He also attributes a lot of his musical inspiration to The Beatles, Black Keys, Interpol, and Radiohead.

Andy Fischer-Price was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Like Brooks, he also moved to Los Angeles to become an actor, though he’d studied music since age nine. Through the Northwest Choirs he learned everything from Bach to Bill Withers and developed an ear for harmony. He picked up electric bass in high school and started writing songs for his first band at fifteen years-old. His current influences include the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket, and “probably around 100,000 other artists.
