Like most bands, WhoKnew rose from the remnants of other bands. In early 2006 Ian Winterbaur and Ethan Stephenson were playing
in a cover band.
The two started writing songs together and soon created catchy tunes like Betcha Don't Know, You're Here and Someday.
After the cover band broke up, Ian and Ethan hooked up with Nathan Alderman and as an acoustic trio continued to write songs, including Morganus,
Find Her in the Rain, L'amore Conquista and She Said. The addition of Nathan Gorman on drums not only completed the band,
but added the necessary elements to compel the song writing to introduce electric guitars. This led them to write songs like
It's Alright, Maybe Destiny Ain't Full Of Lies, and Spin.
Combining multiple instruments, a classic sense of melodies and hooks, and a song-writing maturity well beyond their years, WhoKnew have
all the elements most bands aspire to attain. The guys recorded an acoustic demo of their tunes in February 2007 and spent the next year
writing and recording songs for their debut album "Crossing That Bridge", released in spring 2008.
