    Indian Summer

    Indian Summer is a Los Angeles based folk/indie/rock group made up of members The Indian, Summer Mencher, Toby Karlin, Austin Farmer, and Luke Duffy. Their first EP, "Four Days in Arkham" was

    released in March of 2013. The music both lyrically and sonically touches on beautiful struggles and difficult triumphs. "Everything that we wrote came from a desire to address the landscape of our lives. What we had witnessed and felt needed to be displayed," says The Indian.

    Although members The Indian, Summer, and Toby met at Berklee College of Music, it wasn't until years later when they found themselves in Los Angeles that they formed the group. "We got together one night to have dinner and catch up. We started jamming after and immediately came up with several songs that we truly loved," says Summer. "We all have different tastes, but that's what makes our songs so diverse." The first

    song they created was "Stand With Me", a southern-style blues that pulses with a powerful mantra. “The lyrics at the end say 'It ain't something you can describe, it is something you can't deny' and that pretty much stated exactly what we felt about that song in that moment of creation, indescribable and undeniable” recalls Toby. In time, Austin and Luke joined the mix, bringing with them new influences and new ideas.

    “We knew we had something to
    offer, and the next step was
    making a record,” says
    Summer. Enter Corey Schreppel, producer, engineer, drummer, and longtime friend of the band. When asked for his opinions of the songs and ideas on how to make a great record, Corey did one better. He flew out from Boston, MA for a four day recording marathon, working solely out of his passion for the music. The result was Four Days in Arkham, their debut EP. The album is named after the make shift home studio which they call Arkham Studios (The Indian, Toby and Corey all being die-hard Batman fanatics), in West Hollywood, CA.

    Indian Summer is now busy preparing for the release of their next EP, debut music video and a 2014 west coast tour. Often told at shows that their songs bring to mind the heartfelt lyrics and soaring, soulful melodies of bands like Fleetwood Mac, The Black Keys, Marvin Gaye, and Mumford & Sons, Indian Summer is more than the sound of a passing season, they’re lifetime friends who plan keep good music coming for the long run.
