All This Huxley (Band)
All This Huxley is an American four-piece Indie Rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Its lineup consists of Trevor Serine (rhythm & lead guitar, vocals), John Corcoran (lead & rhythm guitar, vocals), Alex Marlys (bass guitar, vocals), and Josh Mayer (drums & percussion, vocals). Each member contributes vocals, and Serine and Corcoran alternate rhythm/lead throughout their performances. Each member is an accomplished singer/songwriter in their own right. Each band member has a nickname. In addition, Serine and Corcoran are licensed, practicing attorneys.
The band's eclectic musical styling and erudite lyrics draw from Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Americana; they are influenced by Tom Waits, Guided by Voices, Modest Mouse, Mark Knopfler, Warren Zevon, Wilco, Chet Atkins, and Dr. Dog. Their music which range from pulsing drums and towering guitar riffs, to the laid-back acoustic-driven folk single, "Two Feet in the Sand."
Origins[edit | edit source]
Huxley's origins trace back to Serine and Corcoran's enrollment at Drexel Law School back in 2010, where they discovered each other's love of blues, jazz, and classic rock. Both had previously been singer/songwriters within the music scene for a number of years; the two were soon busy writing their own collaborations and recording them in Serine's basement. The band began as a result of the evolution of the two's first music project, The Jazz Frogs, and culminated with inclusion of two other local musicians with whom Corcoran grew up, Alex Marlys and Josh Mayer. The band's early years were spent largely in-and-around Philadelphia and South Jersey, where they developed a dedicated fanbase, and toured with other local bands.
