Who would’ve thought small town boredom, adrenaline, and a lust for recklessness mixed together on the suburban streets of Forth Worth, TX would end up producing raw, real, and infectious rock anthems? Although they didn’t know each-other yet, Cole Male and Kyle Morris were booked on separate accounts of grand theft auto and ended up in a Ft .Worth Juvenile dentition center together. The two became fast friends, and as their brush with the law came to an end, they decided to focus their energies elsewhere…music. Influenced by Bob Dylan, The Strokes, and The Beatles, these best friends quickly found a style all their own, a local crowd in the hundreds, and some local radio love from Dallas Alt. station 102.1 the Edge…their sound…bohemians with a drunken Texan drawl. While backpacking and street performing through Prague and Amsterdam at eighteen, Kyle began to feel a transcendence of identity. He conceived an album that reflected his new found romance with the land of his ancestors, while sharpening his affection and affliction to his roots in the States. Back home in Texas, uniting with classmates Kevin Goddard (Drums), Josiah Maughn (Lead Guitar), and Brenton Carney (Bass), The Unlikely Candidates were born. With an authentic sound and an ability to paint vivid pictures with their lyrics, The Unlikely Candidates transcend trends with a focus on the art of the song.
