Splashdown, formed in Allston, Massachusetts, in 1996, was an American pop rock band. The group disbanded in 2001. Splashdown gained a small but extremely loyal following in the Northeast United States for their combination of electronica, rock, jazz, and Middle-Eastern influences.
Splashdown consisted of singer/pianist Melissa Kaplan (Universal Hall Pass), electronic programmer Kasson Crooker (later working under the name Symbion Project), and guitarist/bassist Adam Buhler. The trio increased in size to a five- or six-piece group for live shows; these line-ups frequently included drummer Jason Sakos and guitarist Trevor Shand. Buhler and Crooker were in another female-fronted band in the mid-1990s, Sirensong.
When they were together- during the height of file-sharing programs such as Napster- Splashdown was against sharing their songs online. However, due to their break-up and the fact that much of Splashdown's work has never been commercially available, the band and their fans have made efforts to see that Splashdown's music is available for free online. Some such ways have been forums posts, websites, and other points of interest to an internet user. Such link can be found in their Wikipedia entry, or directly from forums posts such as this, which was found on WNA Forums.
