Meet Year Of October

Year of October is an on-the-rise independent band based out of Nashville that has heavily featured on CBW Radio over the past three weeks, but who exactly are they?

Introduced to CBW Radio via the Independent Spotlight during The Rock Revival, Year of October has quickly become a fan favorite amongst listeners of the station. Capturing both a classic rock and modern sound, Year of October’s featured tracks off of Wastelands have found a home on Fridays as well as regular CBW Programing. Upon reaching out to the band, I was able to secure further information about this incredible act and just who they are.

Who is Year of October?

Year of October is Phlecia Sullivan, Josh Sullivan, and James Varner.” The band was formed by Phlecia and Josh While attending the University of Kentucky in 2010. The name comes from “When Phlecia and I (Josh) first started playing music… I was playing acoustic guitar and she was singing and it had a campfire music kind of vibe. Phlecia came up with the name based on that feeling of fall.”

How would you describe your sound?

“We’d describe our sound as fuzz, rock, soul. I would say that our music combines rock, soul, and blues; We’ve put out 4 records now and each record has continued to change and evolve (our sound)”

Who have been your biggest influences?

“We like a lot of different music, Some of our favorites include Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Black Sabbath, Jack White, Dead Weather, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, The Budos Band, and Charles Bradley.”

Year of October can be heard regularly on CBW Radio where Josh describes, “It’s definitely an honor for us to be showcased… It’s an awesome station and we are truly very thankful.” As well as on any major streaming service such as Spotify or iTunes.

You can also catch Year of October live in Nashville, TN at Drifter’s BBQ on May 14th as well as Kimbro’s in Franklin, TN on May 25th!

All is Not Well Between Former Lithium Band Mates!

While details about the issue have yet to come out, regarding the questions as to what lead to the reported falling out, Current guitarist, Evan Sinarski, appears to have cut all contact with the founding member.

The brainchild of Style (Jordan Toler) accompanied by guitarist Brayden D., saw the addition of current guitarist Evan Sinarski merely a month and a half after the bands inception. While Brayden departed from the group in late 2015, citing “creative differences” on the part of Style, Evan and Style remained turning out music still to this day. The duo accompanied by a slew of studio/session drummers and bassists, have made server almost appearances including CHS’s town hall rock off, and live on NCU Radio.

The trio has and two brief reunions, both resulting from Evan Sinarski’s departure and leave from The United States Air Force. While there seemed to be no bad blood between the three men, Evan Sinarski, when asked about what had transpired had this to say…

“I just blocked Brayden on every social media platform lol.”
