The anticipated release of Innocent Man’s first album, “Home Grown” is scheduled for February 9th 2013. The album release will include a notable party at The Visual Arts Collective located in Boise, Idaho. The Album is a brilliant assortment of new and seasoned original cross-genre songs. Fans that have followed the band for years will delight in the new life the band has breathed into many of its familiar songs as they continue to progress their sound and push their musical boundaries.
This Boise based 6 piece was cultivated by childhood friends sharing their love of music. Both Scott Sprague & Dan Burns grew up in McCall, Idaho and graduated in the same small class. While in college the core members of the band became friends and started to jam.. Scott, Dan, Tim, Conlyn, and Josh Sears played together for more than a decade in various lineups and great bands around Idaho’s Treasure Valley such as “Red House,” “Classic Ashley,” “the3hundred” and “Enormous G.” In 2008 the guys switched up instruments and song arrangements and founded a new band.
The guys decided to call the new band “Innocent Man” as a play on the fact that two of the members are lawyers. Each member of the band has their own specific tastes in music, which helps make for a unique and special sound that touches many different genres all within a single song. This special sound reverberates through all ages, and creates a common connection that sparks new friendships everywhere it’s heard.
Some notable events and festivals Innocent Man has performed are; The Idaho-Down (2012), The McCall Winter Carnival (2012 & 2013), The Summer Music Festival at Roseberry (2011 & 2012), Boise Heart Walk (2011 & 2012), Blues, Brews & BBQ’s Event (2012), Idaho Wing-Off Contest (2011 & 2012), Barley Bros.
