The Spring Standards
The Spring Standards have been told many things about their music since their start in 2008 – it makes people feel warm inside, it touches painful places. It’s simple and sweet yet dark and utterly confusing. They’ve been called folk, pop, rock, Americana, indie and everything in between – sometimes all over the course of a 45-minute set. In spite of this, The Spring Standards are far from a band in the midst of an identity crisis. They are not trend-chasers or bandwagon riders. They are honest-to-goodness troubadours who let their music guide them, dutifully following wherever it might lead.
For 3 kids who grew up together in the woods and creeks of the Delaware/Pennsylvania border, their shared memories take them down winding back roads to starry open fields on quiet summer nights. They learned James Taylor covers in their parentâ€™s garage and played small side stages at local folk festivals while other kids their age were doing way cooler things. Their love of music was the tie that always bound them to each-other, and making it together quickly became the lifeblood of their friendship.
