Sleeping Jesus

Sleeping Jesus is the dream pop project started by Nick Elstad in Winona, MN. The now five-piece project, featuring Tyler Steinley, Andy Bauer, Seamus St. Clair, and Dante DeGrazia, has started work on their debut album with friend and producer Mike Noyce. The band has played from Los Angeles to New York City and performed at SXSW festival in Austin, TX in 2019.

"A gorgeous dose of indie-rock comparable to bands like Brooklyn's Woods and Chicago's Whitney. Recently named one of First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2016."

Mike Madden, Star Tribune
