SEAFARER got its start in late 2012 after Patrick Schiavone (guitar, vocals, synth) moved to the Twin Cities from Chicago. Upon arriving he met Rob Haack (2012-2016) while performing together in a band they both joined after responding to a Craigslist ad. In the spring of 2012 the decided they would try to form something of their own, and put their fate in Craigslist once again, which resulted in the original lineup of Patrick, Rob, Brian Huhn (bass/vocals) and Bill Bruss (guitar, synth).
SEAFARER’s debut EP was recorded in the summer of 2016 at Blue Bell Knoll and released in May of 2017. After the recording Rob relocated to Costa Rica and the band was back to Craigslist. We added Jesse Bruflodt on drums in early 2017 and Calvin Keyes on synths and vocals later in the year. We are currently writing a follow up to the debut, playing local shows, and scheming up a small Mid West Tour in 2018. The band has come a long way and couldn’t be happier with the current lineup.
