SPINDRIFT currently reside in Los Angeles where they’ve been consistently active since 2001 writing, touring, and releasing their own hybrid cinematic style of music. The current version of the band differs from the earlier as the roots of the band date all the way back to the pre-Internet, what’s a smart phone era 1991 in Newark, DE. Singer-Songwriter Kirpatrick Thomas’s writing style (being the bands link) has surely matured and shaped over the years yet the roots of the bands influences still show through. Throughout the 90’s, the burgeoning Delaware scene was fruitful with bands such as Zen Guerilla, Mother Natures Blacklight Rainbow, Schroeder, Smashing Orange, Jake & The Stiffs, and a million others consistently changing the face of music of the 2nd smallest state in the USA. From 91-95, SPINDRIFT released their early 7″ singles and cassette’s via Neck Records (Kurt Beers) and performed countless gigs throughout Wilmington, Philly, NYC, PA, Baltimore, DC, Atlanta, and beyond. They mainly called THE BARN DOOR & THE EAST END CAFE their home. Barn Door owner Art Callahan’s contribution was imperative to the growth of the band as well as the scene as a whole. When they closed doors in the late 90’s along with the death of venues such as The East End Cafe, The Stone Balloon, The (pre-renovated) DEER PARK, the band decided to make their faithful exit beyond. Kirpatrick Thomas, bassist Joe Baluta, and drummer Zac Hansen decided that the West was best and trekked out beyond relocating in Los Angeles where the story goes on.
