Pandas & People
Pandas & People is a three-piece folk/acoustic band based out of Northern Colorado.
Starting in a basement in Greeley, CO, Joshua Scheer and Johnny Day began writing acoustic/folk songs as a side project to their alt/rock group Five Day Rhetoric. After gaining momentum amongst close friends and family, they felt they had found their niche. In November of 2013, Pandas & People hit the studio to record their first single 'On My Way' after over a year of tweaking the tune to perfection.
In December 2013, after only two weeks of the release of 'On My Way', it was chosen as a top ten contender for a local competition called Hometown for the Holidays, put on by channel 93.3 KTCL. This gave the tune heavy radio play, being in main rotation for almost two weeks. The response from the station's radio play was enormous as the song's sales skyrocketed and listeners voted the song top 3 in the statewide competition.
Adding pianist Megan Huffman in December 2013, the band is as well rounded as ever and has plans to tour around the Midwest region with their newly released debut EP.
Influences: The Head and the Heart, The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons
