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 Dream Theater, they have mastered a sound that is sure to make you get up and mosh, head bang and hold up your lighters.
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.
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).
Ramz has been part of several bands over the years, including a very successful stint in StillFear (#2 Best Hard Rock Album on Amazon; #11 Best Hard Rock/Metal Band on Amazon). Some of his other bands include Sanguine Surroundings, DEXX, The Thomas Wolff Band, Halo Haven and Obscured By Shadows.
Usually accompanied by his younger brother Brett, Ramz is always exploring new projects. The most recent of which is Somewhere Between; a mesh of Sevendust, All that remains and Wovenwar.
Jay started his music journey in high school at the age of 14. As soon as he picked up the guitar, he knew it was the start to something special. Jay 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. There was always something about mastering the art of soloing that caught his attention. He would spend hours and 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) during which he didn't have much time to pursue music because of the mission of the unit he was in, but that time has ended and the time for music has re-entered Jays life and the journey with Somewhere between has begun.
