The Wind is a vocally driven, indie rock band from Long Beach, California. The group consists of Chad Marshman (guitar, piano, vocals), Kevin Jaemes (guitar, piano, vocals), and brothers Chip (drums, percussion, vocals) and Nick (bass, vocals) Knechtel. Together they’ve spent the last five years touring and writing their ever-unique, vocal harmony textured, orchestral rock. To categorize their sound you might imagine a style something like Harry Nilsson, Tom Waits and The Beach Boys with a healthy influence of modern indie-rock.
In 2011, they self-recorded, produced, and released their first double album, Harum-Scarum.
