Somewhere Between was founded by singer / guitarist Brett Poindexter and (former guitarist) Greg Lancaster mid 2015. Their idea was to form a band with no limitations of what they wanted to play. Mixing a style that varies from Sevendust to Avenged Sevenfold and blending in sounds from bands like Killswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine, they have mastered a sound that is sure to make you get up and mosh, head bang and hold up your lighters.
Brett Poindexter - Lead Vocals; Guitars
Brett found his passion for guitar at 13 years old and wound up teaching guitar at merely 18. He has formed a few original bands, Dexx (formed with his brother Ramz and sister Laura, stemming from their last name Poindexter), StillFear (where he did vocals and all guitars), Halo Haven (with his wife Erica poindexter on vocals) and now Somewhere Between. Brett has had many opportunities to open for bands such as Nonpoint, Powerman 5000, Sick Puppies, Eyes Set To Kill and Lacuna Coil. Many would say that Brett is a truly amazing musician and songwriter.
Jay Lucero - Guitars
Jay started his music journey in high school at the age of 14 and spent a lot of his early days playing riffs from other bands as well as writing his own. His brother was the drummer for his band Black Theory, which was a prog/thrash metal band and the people that helped form that band really helped to push his desire to continue getting better. Jay would spend hours learning scales, arpeggios and melodic phrases to help blend his ideas. His early influences came from punk rock music but as he progressed with skill, his music style broadened to jazz, classical, blues and metal. at 20, Jay left for the military where he spent 8 years preforming duties as an Airborne 13Fox (FISTER), but that time has ended and the time for music has re-entered Jays life and the journey with Somewhere between has begun.
Ramz Poindexter - Drums; Bass; Vocals
Ramz started playing drums at the age of 13, blasting away on a hand-made kit passed along from a family friend. With early influences such as the mighty Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Mr. Big, Metallica and Ozzy, it wasn't long before he would discover his main drumming influences in Neil Peart (Rush) and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater; Winery Dogs). Recently, Ramz has taken on the bass, quickly learning the skills it takes to round out a heavy rhythm section for Somewhere Between. His bass influences range from John Paul Jones to Robert DeLeo, Geddy Lee, adding in other great shredders like Billy Sheehan and John Myung. Ramz has been part of several bands over the years, including a very successful stint in StillFear (#2 Best Hard Rock Album on Amazon.com; #11 Best Hard Rock/Metal Band on Amazon.com).
