Matt Marron (guitar/vocals) and David Fairbanks (vocals / percussion) started Pomeroy with a three song demo that was recorded in a garage studio during a weekend getaway to Los angeles. As soon as they returned home to Manhattan, Kansas, the two shopped around for a rhythm section, and with a bit of good fortune Pomeroy became complete when they met Dean Hopkins (bass) and Chris Davis (drums). The band soon recorded their first CD and set out on the road, and thus Pomeroy was born.
After a couple years of relentless touring, the band sat down to record their second album. Coccoon Club quickly became a success, selling over 8,000 copies in the Midwest alone, and with this also came the fifth piece of the puzzle, Tyson Leslie (keys/guitar). On the strength of "Coccoon Club", Pomeroy opened a sea of new markets across the countryand paved the way for their third release, "IDENTITY". As an EP, Identity was unveiled in 2003, lauding Pomeroywith new found respect from fans and critics alike. Identity has been touted as the closest thing to capturing the energy of Pomeroy Live...and the live show is what Pomeroy fans live for. Recently, Pomeroy decided to add 4 live tracks to the Identity EP, to satisfy the demand for their live recordings.
"Identity" now includes their popular rendition of Stevie Wonder''s "Sir Duke", along with a previously unreleased recording of their newest song, "Soundtrack". As a full length, "Identity" was re-released nationally in June of 2004 through ADA , a division of Warner Music Group.
The national release of Identity promises to turn the Pomeroy outbreak into a full-blown epidemic, as the band continues to capture new audiences across the country and the momentum begins to really build around this epic live experience.
Pomeroy has shared the stage with The Dave Matthews Band, Nelly, Incubus, Stone Temple Pilots, 311, Sister Hazel, Christina Aguilera and many more.
