Somewhere Between was founded by singer / guitarist Brett Poindexter and 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 All That Remains and blending in sounds from bands like Wovenwar 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.com; #11 Best Hard Rock/Metal Band on Amazon.com). 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.
Greg hails from the great Toronto Canada! He started playing guitar when he was 12 years old and joined his first band, Death of Gods, when he was 19. After cutting his teeth on playing numerous shows all over Toronto with DOG he formed a new band called Disaster with some of the members of DOG. Greg wrote most of the riffs for Disaster and after a short time were in the studio recording their first demo. During this time Disaster played many shows in support of bands such as Sacred Reich, Beyond, Malhavoc, and many other up and coming metal bands. Members of Disaster went on to form such bands as Mundane and Monster Voodoo Machine. Some of Greg’s influences are Metallica and Slayer from his youth and more modern metal bands such as Trivium, As I Lay Dying and Machine Head. Nobody brings more passion and enthusiasm to the table than Greg does with his guitar playing and attitude.
