Listen to best the Nashville Area has to offer with the “Local Buzz Cut” of the week every weekday at 2pm.
An alternative rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee, Sleep for the Weary was formed in late 2010 by vocalist Ian Shannon. The band has grown from a solo effort on the debut album In To and Out From (2014) to a 5-piece effort after the completion of their second full-length album Nocturns (2016).
Comprised of Robb Edmondson, John Hurst, Rodrigo Sebastian, Ian Shannon, and Eric Woodrow, the band mends profound and at times abstract lyrics with heavy, melodic instrumentation. Giving rest to a troubled mind is the band’s namesake, and Sleep for the Weary echoes this image in their repertoire.
