A casual meet-up at work is where Philomuse was born. By bringing together Alec Williams and Michael Young, an indestructible musical connection was sparked as the two of them soon discovered they shared similar tastes in music and therefore decided it was worth it if they blended their musical tastes and created music that they both loved. Michael then introduced Alec to his longtime friend and jam partner, Seth Sherley, who became the third member of Philomuse to play the drums. The trio performed for a while before Seth brought along another gifted bass player, Jared Bone, who completes this quartet based out of Clarksville, TN, except Alec, who lives in Paducah, KY.
Philomuse is ultimately what happens when seasoned and diversely talented artists, performers, and dexterous instrumental players get together; each recognizing what the other is worth. As they explore the infinite sonic indie rock rabbit holes, you get to experience how, together, they are perfection.
