For a decade, Nashville-based band The Greeting Committee has proven their knack for storytelling. Now, with the release of their third studio album “Everyoneʼs Gone and I Know Iʼm The Cause,” they have a lot to get off their chests.

Since garnering 100+ million global streams and a dedicated fanbase, the band, which now consists of founding members Addie Sartino and Pierce Turcotte, longtime member Noah Spencer, and newcomer Micah Ritchie has gone from strength to strength. Theyʼve opened for the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Hippocampus, while selling out headline shows across America and simultaneously releasing acclaimed albums, including 2018ʼs “This Is It” and 2022ʼs “Dandelion” which garnered support from Billboard, The Washington Post, NYLON and more.

With “Everyoneʼs Gone and I Know Iʼm The Cause,” an album born amid grief and loss, Sartino and Turcotte are meticulously balancing vulnerability and self-reflection — all wrapped up in 10 tracks that include the lead single “popmoneyhits.” “I was afraid if I didnʼt hold tightly enough, if I didnʼt struggle enough, if I didnʼt sacrifice enough that I wouldnʼt be enough,” says Sartino on the process of making of their third album. “And if I couldnʼt be enough then how could I ever deserve this? But I promise you, the things and the people that are meant for you will always believe you are enough.”

For Jordan Dunn-Pilz and Dan Alvarez, Toledo isn't just their band, it's a way to blend their minds together and become one. "Individually, we're a mess," says Alvarez. "But as a pair, our strongest qualities reveal themselves." Lifelong friends, Alvarez is the wildcard and Dunn-Pilz, the sensible one. On their new EP Jockeys of Love— co-produced and mixed by Jorge Elbrecht (Wild Nothing, Frankie Rose) — the duo have mind-melded yet again to create a soundtrack for those long drives when the entire world seems to be in harmony with you, and your thoughts seem monumental because of it. The EP strikes a perfect balance of light and dark; its lyrics cover heavier matters like relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and alcoholism, while the music retains a sense of better days just around the corner. You can hear almost the entire emotional spectrum spread across these six songs, but its prevailing emotion is hope. "There's a lot of that in this EP," says Dunn-Pilz. "It's not just presenting a problem, it's offering a solution as well. It's pushing through adversity, and taking action instead of sitting back and letting things happen to you." Now New York City-based, Alvarez and Dunn-Pilz were destined to find one another in their tiny coastal town of Newburyport, Massachusetts, where they met some fifteen years ago at age 10 while busking for bemused passers-by. They grew up together, developed their own tastes, formed their own bands, and eventually separated for the first time during their college years. They kept in touch throughout, however, continuing to write songs together by trading voice clips back and forth across hundreds of miles. After graduation, Alvarez and Dunn-Pilz agreed to 'just get back to doing what we were doing before.'
