The Meadows are Todd Herfindal and Kevin Houlihan. Introduced years ago in San Francisco by future ex-girlfriends, the two have been making music together ever since. Todd grew up representing the West Coast under the beautiful Northern California sun. Kevin took off from New Jersey after many happy and youthful years. Now living in Los Angeles, the duo churn out one hook-laded album after the next. Since their start in 2005 they have written, produced, recorded and mastered three releases to praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Playback: Stl, Amplifier, and AllMusic…just to name-drop a few. Todd and Kevin share lead vocal responsibilities. Using the tried and true foundation of drums, bass and electric guitars, The Meadows build upon their sound with vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars, piano, organ, strings, and everything else you can think of, to create a sound that is expansive and cinematic. The Meadows have delivered the follow up to their critically acclaimed self-titled debut LP. The result of their latest mental brainstorm is “First Nervous Breakdown”’, the band’s second full-length album, releasing January 29th, 2008. Key tracks on the record were mixed by Danny Saber (The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, U2, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, INXS, Garbage, The Charlatans UK, Black Grape). A colorful cast of players appear including Brian Young (Fountains Of Wayne, The Posies) on drums/percussion; Joe Skyward (Sunny Day Real Estate, Sky Cries Mary, The Posies) on Bass; Brian Lapin (Black Eyed Peas, Mozella, The Shore) on organ and Piano. First Nervous Breakdown: A Uniquely – Schizophrenic - Rock N’ Rolling - Indie - Guitar – Pop - Alternative - California - Country - Vibey – Record. Everything is gonna be o.k.
