Recorded at Bias Studios in northern Virginia, their debut EP showcases an expansive sound. "Baby Don't Drive" is a rollicking getaway anthem based on a true story, while rhythm-driven "Houston" takes on a different sort of running away. "Rolling Springs" features lush four-part harmonies; She Picks Me Up" is a lively toe-tapper; "You & Whiskey" leaves a mean, slow burn.
Having been together for more years than we can remember, the Too Soons is a 5-piece band playing traditional and original bluegrass music. The group relies on growling vocals and fast chops to get crowds out of their seats and dancing. The band has performed at countless DC venues, and its members are fixtures at local jams and regularly sit in with a diverse set of other groups all around our fair city.
So what makes us different than By & By, the neighborhood bluegrass band you know and love? Why are we hiding out on this page in the middle of the By & By site? Well, the Too Soons is what happens when By & By’s phenomenal lead singer, Elise Marie, is unable to travel to a show that the rest of the band is itching to play. In those cases, By & By’s guitar player, Dan Buchner, steps back into the lead vocal spot that he occupied years ago - before Elise came along and showed everyone how to do it for real. As you’d expect, this means that the Too Soons are just as tight and experienced as By & By while playing a repertoire consisting of standard bluegrass, acoustic blues, and original Americana.
