Floater

Real Name:
Floater
Profile:
Originally formed in 1993 after Robert Wynia and Peter Cornett left the band Henry's Child. Floater grew out of Eugene, Oregon and was quickly signed to a small independent label called Elemental Records. After two quick albums, the band moved to Portland, Oregon where they remain today.

Floater started out as a predominantly metal/hard rock band. Their earlier songs were centered around bass driven mechanics with subtle influences from Primus and hard rock bands. The early albums also had a handful of acoustic songs, too.

By their third album, more emphasis was placed on the guitar sounds of David Amador. Their sound slowly transitioned from chunky primal rhythms to more loose hard rock sound with many musical suggestions from the likes of Pink Floyd, The Doors, and eventually later on bands like The Police, U2, Jane's Addiction, and many more.

The band tours extensively in the Pacific Northwest and occasionally making a tour once a year throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, and sometimes Utah. Their shows are the bread and butter for Floater fans. The shows are rather well-performed with surprise jams, extensions, and covers. The band has a rather devoted fan-base on the West coast that attends a large majority of their shows whenever possible.
