Filled to the Brim- Biographies

Filled to the Brim was formed in 2018. They met at Jim O'Mahony's Rock Camp in July of that summer. Musicians interested in playing in a band and composing together gathered in Marcy, NY for a two week camp. By the end of that session, Filled to the Brim had composed their debut single, "Turn Back the Time." Band members were beginning to collaborate on new song ideas.  They played their first concert in August 2018. In December 2018, they recorded their first single, "Turn Back the Time" with Jose Varona from MoreSound Studios in Syracuse, NY.  

In March 2019, Filled to the Brim recorded a music video for their single, "Turn Back the Time" with Lisa Baron from Upstate Studios - now known as Baroness Films in Utica, NY. 

Over the course of 2019, they played shows and continued collaborating. During this time, Filled to the Brim wrote 10 more original songs. They headed back to the studio in December 2019 and recorded their upcoming 11 track album with Andrew Greacen from MoreSound Studios.

Filled to the Brim recently performed at JCC of Syracuse's 2020 High School Battle of the Bands. It was a great experience for them to showcase their talents.
