    The Welcome

    Alternative Rock

    In a nutshell:
    Boy-girl pop sometimes fast, always loud and catchy.

    Out of the nutshell:
    After their acoustic project dissolved in the spring of 2010, Gehring Miller and Sarah Johnson went their separate ways. Sarah moved to Florida, while Gehring formed The Welcome in order to perform a louder, more rock n' roll set of songs he had been working on. That following September, Gehring began recording and self-releasing an EP a month, all the while documenting the process online.

    By the time Sarah returned to Chicago and joined the band in May 2011, Gehring had merged the two projects. The Welcome was releasing music each month, with September 2011 seeing their final release as part of the project. What had begun as a pieced-together group of musicians was becoming a family, with the notable presence of longtime collaborator, Jonah Kort. A sound had arrived: dynamic guy-girl vocals, a healthy dose of loud hooks, and unrelenting melodies. "Our mission is to apply the ADD-like concepts of Top 40 pop music to old-school indie rock music and hopefully give the genre a little more of the spotlight," says Miller. "We also like to be loud."

    After the release of Honey, Honey [EP] in 2012, The Welcome are gearing up to take 2013 by storm. Their latest EP, Bicentennial, was released February 23, and plans for a full-length album are under way. A release is expected before the end of the year.
